Slap on some sunscreen, pop on a hat, and grab your rod - the fish are biting at Bemm!
After a very long, cold, and wet winter the warm weather is finally upon us which should result in some amazing fishing. The entrance remains open and the water level is very low. With spring comes the impending close of the entrance, which encourages a productive prawning season. Of recent times, anglers have experienced successful fishing in the vicinity of the Mahoganies and Siberia area with quality bream usually caught on sandworm or peeled prawn.
With the warmer weather here we should see the flathead start to become very active again and there is no doubt they have been breeding up in large numbers. Over the past three years flathead have been our major ‘sport’ fish over the spring and summer periods. The flathead will take plastics, live prawn, bluebait, frozen prawn, and vibes.
Now the days are warmer, the salmon are going gangbusters along our surf beaches. Hard bodied lures are generally more successful along the beach as an abundance of crabs are just waiting to steal your bait faster than you can cast it out! The upside of a thriving crab population is the appearance of gummy sharks lured by the crabs, especially during the full moon cycles. The river has been quiet but as the fresh water flows slow we should see the bream enter the river to spawn.
