The weather has warmed up and some nice sized prawns have shown up in the Lakes System. Many people have been out in their boats catching 4 to 5” prawns off Bullock Island.
Lots of luderick have been caught from the rocks around Bullock to Kalimna on weed.
King George whiting and flathead have been boated by anglers fishing the main lake whilst some nice bream have been caught off the local jetties in the Cunningham Arm. Craig Bosman of Melbourne landed a great 1.2kg, 42cm bream on a recent trip.
Tailor to 4 and 5kg have been common at Lake Tyers.
Some pinkie snapper have also been landed around Blackfellows Arm.
Other catches have included a few bream and some flathead on lures, the best of which went 7.5kg. Some fish!
Boat-based anglers should head to the Nowa Nowa Arm and the Trident Arm during March. I suggest trolling for bream and flathead with Lazer lures.
Outside, snapper fishing has been a little quiet. Some very nice gummies have been lured to the surface by anglers going to the trouble of berley trails. Local Sohan Vise caught his very first gummy, which measured 3ft. Sohan and his mates also fished the Six Mile Reef and caught a few small snapper and a mixed bag of reef fish.
Let’s hope some more snapper show up for the Easter holidays in April!Reads: 1519
