As we charge through winter, our ‘Tag-A-Fish’ promotion has launched with the tagged fish managing to evade capture so far. This means they are still swimming around out there, calling to all anglers to come and find them.
When the weather permits and the frosty mornings thaw out, we see some excellent bream caught, along with some ‘surprise, surprise’ flathead. The water level is very low as the entrance, having gone out in mid-June, but this hasn’t deterred good fishing. The best results for bream have been hardbodied lures, sandworm (when available), and frozen prawn. The flatties are being caught on salted bluebait. The majority of the better flathead have been caught in the shallows in the channel, especially when the sun appears.
The Mahoganies and Pelican Point have been the hot spots for the bream, as we have had a considerable amount of rain, which pushed the dirty water out through the entrance, leaving these areas with relatively clean water. The surf has produced salmon and tailor when it has been possible to fish. There has been no report of EPs to date, but these crafty little suckers will no doubt be sneaking around somewhere in the system.
Don’t forget the ‘Tag-A-Fish’ promotion, which is gaining momentum with all prizes displayed in the dining room of the Bemm River Hotel. All participating business houses have free registration forms available and we would love to see the tagged fish caught soon.
Go to the ‘Bemm River Tag-A-Fish’ Facebook page for more details, or feel free to give us a call.
So pack your winter woollies and give us a ring to secure your winter holiday booking. The promotion concludes 31 August 2016, so hurry and book now.
