With daylight savings over the days are getting shorter and so is the fishing time. Reeves Channel is still producing prawns at night. Leatherjackets and grass whiting are responding well to pippies and small pieces of local squid.
Bullock Island is seeing bay trout and trevally taken on blue bait.
On the Bank Jetty in town, Berwick boys Craig Bosman and Daniel Alarcon caught a few bream using sandworm and local prawn while on school holidays.
North Arm has seen a return of garfish. Sandworm and pippies are the best baits. Suspend them beneath a float. Kalimna rock wall is still producing the odd luderick under a float. Weed is the best bait.Outside, the fishing pinkie snapper to 1.5kg have been caught on the Six Mile Reef. Squid and cut pilchards have been the best baits.
Some big gummies are being caught down the west to the pines. Don’t forget to berley up. Mako Charters and Sea Myth are keeping their customers happy with a good strike rate on most trips.At present, Lake Tyers is still the place to fish with flathead, bream and pinkie snapper on the go. April saw the return of garfish as well. The bottom lake remains the best option. The best time to fish is early morning or late afternoon.
If you like to fish amongst the snags for big bream and flathead, then try Cherry Tree and the Burnt Bridge area. Another good place to try is under the Toorloo Arm Bridge on the way to Nowa Nowa. Micheal Spagnolo from Melbourne caught trevally, tailor and a couple of leatherjackets from the no. 2 boat ramp back towards the Waterwheel Tavern.
