Bream biting well

The bream fishing has been very good if you’re a local angler as there have been many fish moving about the bayside creeks and estuaries, and they can be caught out structure in the bay itself when they come out to roam and feed. If you’re planning a trip to Gippsland for the long weekend the bream have also been firing in most of the estuaries.

Customer Angelo has caught some nice bream recently fishing from the piers. Angelo has been fishing from piers such as Frankston and Mordialloc, where he has landed nice bream to around 40cm. Angelo has been using live freshwater yabbies and shrimp for bait, but baits of mussel have also been effective when fished on a light leader with very minimal casting weight.

Customer Peter also landed a nice brace of bream fishing around Mordialloc creek and pier. Peter found that locally caught live shrimp were the dynamite bait for these fish.

Staff member Dylan has been catching some bream fishing land based around Lakes Entrance. Dylan has been walking the shallow flats around Cunningham arm and Lake Tyers, where he has caught good numbers of bream. Dylan has been casting shallow running hardbodies along with surface lures, fishing them over small weed pockets and gutters. Many of the bream have been ranging from mid 30cm size through to 40cm.
