Victoria's Western lakes have been fishing well for trout and redfin for the last few weeks. While the weather might be average and may take a bit to persist with, the quality of fish on offer is well worth it. Some of the lakes that are fishing well at the moment include; Bullen Merri, Purrumbete, Wendouree, Wurdibuloc - along with the lakes over near the Grampians - Wartook, Fyans and Toolondo.
Customer Tim purchased a few new trolling outfits during the week and over the went he went across to the Grampians with a few mates where they did some trolling in a couple of the lakes. While it took some moving about to find the fish, the guys ended up with 17 nice trout averaging around 1.2kg on a variety of lures. The best performers over the weekend were plain white winged 'tassie devil' style lures.
