Lakes Alive!
  |  First Published: March 2007

Lakes Entrance has been fishing well with good numbers of mullet and trevally landed by anglers fishing from the town jetties. Some small school whiting have also been around.

Large flathead have been taking soft plastics around the footbridge and in the north arm. It’s great to see people releasing these big 90cm, 12lb fish after a few photos.

Garfish and mullet have returned to the first bay as you travel up the arm. If you throw out a large bait in this area you might score a large bream and flathead.

If you are after a few small tailor or bay trout try fishing metal lures around Bullock Island in the afternoon.

Anglers fishing the main bridge have been reporting catches of large bream. The largest fish I have seen was Lucas Smith’s 49cm, 1.9kg bream. The fish took a soft plastic.

Prawns are still around and most anglers are catching their fair share. Mill Point has seen some bream take local prawns later in the day.

Joe Boyle from Camberwell fished Lakes Entrance recently and caught several good fish. His best was a 2.75kg flathead.

Luderick have been seen around the rocks around Kalimna and the number 2 boat ramp. I suggest you target these fish under the jetties.

Whole local squid baits produced good catches of gummy shark over the last full moon. Anglers fishing offshore have reported mixed results but there is still the odd gummy 5-6km west.

This month we should see some big reds biting out on the 6 and 10 mile reefs.

Lake Tyers is still firing with tailor up most of the arms. You can catch them on most soft plastics, whitebait, bluebait and metal lures.

Lots of flathead have been caught by anglers drifting soft plastics in the Nowa Nowa arm and up towards the Trident arm.
