Tyers Flathead and Pinkies
  |  First Published: August 2006

Winter is here and it’s brought some nice bream on the bite.

Early July saw many large mullet taken off the jetties in the Cunningham Arm.

Luderick are starting to show up too. The Post Office Jetty has been a good spot to try for these hard fighting estuary fish. Most are legal with a few larger ones in with them.

There have been some trevally and large bream caught around the rocks at Kalimna.

Those anglers with boats should head up the North Arm and fish the snags around the edges. There have been some nice bream up there, which are well worth the effort at this time of year.


Outside, the fishing has improved over the last month with many snapper being boated. Most of the fish have been on the small side but there have been lots of them.

Most anglers have caught their bag limit within a few hours.

The best time has been early morning.

There have also been some nice gummy sharks taken down to the west of the entrance. Drift around to get the best results.

A whole squid or a full pilchard is the way to go.

Lake Tyers

Lake Tyers is filling up with the rain that we’ve had over the last few months.

The bream have come onto the bite up in the Toorloo Arm. The best area has been from Pile Bay up to the Cherry Tree area.

Soft plastics and prawns have brought the best results.

Flathead, some pinkies and large tailor have continued to bite in the bottom end of the lake. Jay Haslam paddled his canoe from the Cherry Tree up towards the main bridge fishing an SX40 and caught six nice bream from the snags. Early morning was the best time.

Those anglers with boats should head up the Nowa Nowa Arm and fish the bays for bream. Soft plastics have been productive.
