Bream make an entrance
  |  First Published: May 2007



Easter has come and gone again with many flathead, trevally and bream caught in the Cunningham Arm during the holiday break. Some of the flathead have been around 3-5 kg and between 60-80cm.

Off the footbridge, the warm holes are seeing bream to 1.3kg caught on baits of local prawns.

For the luderick fans these fish are making their return to the rocks around Kalimna Rocks. The entrance to the North Arm is also producing luderick.

In the top end of the North Arm a few bream are starting to bite first thing in the morning in response to the cold weather.

Offshore fishing was good during April with many snapper and gummy sharks landed. Some people have been travelling west down the coast for around 20km to catch a feed of snapper, with some good fish of between 6-9kg caught.

The two reefs out the front of Lakes Entrance have seen a few reef fish being boated.

Lake Tyers is still the place to fish with many tailor of between 2-3kg being caught up and down the lake system. The fish are being caught on metal lures and soft plastic fish.

There are still a few flathead being caught up the Toorloo Arm late in the day and as the water gets colder the bream will come on the bite too. Land-based anglers should try around the Number Two Boat Ramp where there is a jetty to fish off.

Nowa Nowa Arm up the top end has seen a few bream and flathead caught on local prawns. You need a boat to get the best results. Drift around the banks and work the snags for a feed.
