Flathead Fire Up For Xmas
  |  First Published: December 2006



Summertime at Lakes Entrance is always full of some great fishing action.

King George whiting and flathead have been providing anglers will some friendly battles at the main lake near Kalimna Jetty and up towards Bancroft Bay. Pipi meat and small pieces of peal prawns has drawn in the whiting while soft plastics and hard-bodies are working a treat on flathead.

The north arm has also been fishing well, with reports of decent flathead catches to 5kg. Fred McNamara landed a 3.7kg beauty at Summerland Point on prawn pieces.

Bream have been spotted in the north arm as well, and Reeves Channel has produced some nice leatherjackets between 30-40cm caught on local squid.

Anglers have been targeting trevally under float rigs along the town jetty, and the beach has also been a favourable destination to those chasing salmon and gummies.

The fishing has also been satisfying further out with reports of good size pinkies and gummies landed on most trips.

Lake Tyers has picked up lately with some large flathead caught around the number 2 boat ramp. For land-based anglers, the three arms are fishing well with Nowa Nowa producing some sizable bream on soft plastics. Large tailor have been caught on metal lures and pinkies and leatherjackets can be taken later in the afternoons.

Like most of Australia, Lakes Entrance desperately needs some rain to maintain the great fishing we have been having. Let’s all hope we get some summer rains.
