Big bream at Lake Corringle
  |  First Published: May 2007



The whole of the Snowy River estuary system is still producing good bags of bream, luderick, tailor, flathead and estuary perch.

The surf beaches have plenty of salmon, tailor, mullet, flathead and shark. Offshore from Cape Conran the fishing is still great with flathead, gurnard, morwong, barracouta, squid and shark just some of the species being caught.

With the entrance closed again, the prawns are trapped and should be here for some time, providing plenty of food for the fish. The platforms along the Snowy have been producing good bags of bream and luderick while the snags are holding estuary perch.

Lake Corringle has seen some standout captures of bream. On three outings Paul Lavell and Tony Munday caught over 20 bream and none of them were under 28cm in length. Len Jackson, fishing around the second island, has also been cleaning up. On four trips between Friday and Tuesday Len landed 27 bream ranging in size from 1.6lb to a whopping 4.2lb. He also landed a couple of nice flathead but said he couldn’t go back on Wednesday because he was playing golf! John Fecondo fishing the same area has had similar results.

The offshore fishing out from Conran has been great. Roy Herbert and George Peachy have been getting plenty of flathead, gurnard, squid and gummy shark. Steven Young and crew have also been in on the action catching plenty of flathead and some good size gummy sharks.

All the surf beaches have been producing good catches of salmon, flathead and tailor. Pilchards, whitebait and poppers are producing the best results. Corringle Beach seems to be the best beach for gummy sharks with many good catches being reported. Squid legs are one of the best baits while Dick and Dot Trelor have been having success using blue bait on the gummies.
