Lakes Entrance has seen some nice bream landed from the town jetties over the last month.
You don’t have to own the latest fishing gear to catch them either. Just ask Dane who was on holidays from Queensland. He caught a 1.2kg bream on a hand line. Not a bad effort for a young bloke!
June should see the return of luderick on their winter run. People wanting to catch a few should get hold of some weed and suspend it beneath a float.
The footbridge has also seen plenty of leatherjackets and flying gurnard landed on local squid and pipis.
We saw many salmon caught off the beaches during May. Early morning and late in the day were best. Bluebait and metal lures were most productive.
Outside, there have been a few small snapper boated along with a variety of reef fish from the Six Mile. The kingfish that were there over recent months seem to have gone for another year.
Some good flathead have been boated just outside the entrance. Most have come to those drifting with pilchards and local squid.
There have also been some very large sharks seen up towards the Red Bluff lately.
A few small snapper have come from around Fishermans Landing. Just ask Rick who caught one every night for a week, along with a few small bream. The best bait was local prawn.
Long Point has seen some nice bream and the odd flathead landed just before dark.
There have also been plenty of large tailor boated from the bottom end. Metal lures, with steel traces attached, has been the best way to catch them.
The Trident Arm has seen many bream and flathead boated on soft plastics. Not surprisingly, most bream have come to those anglers casting to snags.
I will send the photos of the bream of dane fish with the paper work for the accounts department.Reads: 639
