Flathead are reasonably quiet at Bemm, although there was a 3.8kg dusky flathead landed by one of our junior anglers on a prawn off the jetty very recently.
The prawns are about at night but they are still only bait size, which is good for anglers but not so good for those looking for a different type of tasty feed.
Sandworm is currently not available here; so local prawn is the preferred bait at the moment.
As a consequence the luderick are scarce for the bait angler.
With the winter months approaching Bemm River becomes a popular destination for the hard and fast black bream anglers.
All types of fishing for bream is successful at Bemm. Last winter the use of vibe style lures was all the rage, and it is to be expected that this will be the case this year.
Warm autumn weather and fantastic fishing was certainly the perfect combination recently in Bemm River.
Anglers trolling in the channel had a lot of fun catching quality tailor and salmon.
This is action packed fun, especially for the junior anglers.
The entrance remains closed so the water level in the lake is high.
The Bemm River Angling Club held its first Bemm River Bream Classic which is now logged on the calendar as an annual event.
This was won by John Close of Boronia with an outstanding bream weighing 1.313kg.
This fish only just topped the scales of some very competitive fish which were weighed in during the three day competition.
As Bemm River has become more and more popular it is now paramount that we source funding and push harder for navigation aids for our waterways. We need your help and ideas to demonstrate to authorities that this is essential before a tragedy occurs.
