Salmon on Lures and Bait
  |  First Published: July 2006



Winter has arrived! The cold weather has been making it hard to venture out to favourite fishing spots.

But the fish are still there waiting for those keen anglers to test their skill. Both the Brodribb and Snowy rivers have seen catches of bream, luderick and mullet.

The surf beaches have still been producing good hauls of salmon, tailor, flathead and mullet with a shark or two to boot.

Offshore at Cape Conran the fishing has been good for flathead, leatherjacket, trevally, gurnard and shark.

The Snowy River entrance recently opened and with some fresh in the river, it should make for some good fishing in the near future.

Len Jackson has been fishing the Brodribb River and reported a good mixed bag of bream, luderick and mullet. He was fishing early in the morning using sandworm.

Colin Weir has been fishing the Snowy and nailing some good size luderick, fishing sandworm under a float.

Helmet Krummer has been busy fishing soft plastics and recently bagged some good bream, but lost the best of them right at the boat.

Dick Trelor has been fishing Corringle Beach early in the mornings and has had enjoyed good catches of salmon, spinning with metal and plastic lures.

Other anglers have reported catching salmon, tailor, trevally and mullet using bluebait, whitebait, pillies, squid and of course poppers.

Good catches of salmon, tailor and flathead have been reported from Point Ricardo and Cape Conran.

Joe and Pauline Connelly have been fishing offshore from Cape Conran on several occasions recently and have managed to catch mixed bags of flathead, gurnard, morwong and gummy shark. Others have reported leatherjackets in good numbers from the same area.
