While the local bream fishing isn't going too bad at all, the Gippsland lakes is on fire for bream fishing. The fishing has been great, whether you're bait or lure fishing - but it is the lure fishing that has been very hard to beat. The warm waters of the gippsland estuaries have really geared up with lots of prey items for the hungry to chomp through, with shrimp, prawns and small gars all getting smashed. Lots of lure choices are working very well at the moment but the hardbody and surface luring has been 5 star. Anglers are reporting multiple hookups and not uncommonly landing 30 or 40 fish in a session. 


Customers Jordan and Josh fished from their kayaks recently and found that the bream were more than happy to hit their surface lures. Both the guys were fishing small surface stickbaits in the 60mm size range and they landed over a dozen fish each, with this session Josh's introducing to bream lure fishing! Surface lure fishing is very visual but there is certainly a knack to triggering the big bream to eat, and having refined tackle makes this a whole lot easier.


Now, if you've always thought bream on lures is a conspiracy, check out how much these fish wanted these 'bent minnows'. Customer John was out in the gippsland estuaries during the week where many bream like this were caught using these surface stickbaits. These premium quality lures certainly get the interest of many a bream, and now is the best time to be out using them.
