Gippsland Lakes bream

The gippsland lakes have been fishing very well for quality bream at present, as there is still some fresh water feeding in from higher up in the feeder rivers. This fresh water puts some anglers off as it seems ‘dirty’ but in reality it helps in many ways.

Customer Mohammed and friends camped at Lake Tyers overs the weekend and caught some nice bream fishing from the bank. The guys found that the water level was very low and discoloured, but baits of prawn were the best with some very nice fish landed around the Mill Point region.

Customer Pete fished the lakes over the weekend with the Nicholson angling club and managed to upgrade his personal best bream by a big margin. Pete fished the Mitchell river and found the fishing slow on the Saturday, but Sunday morning the big fish were out to play! Peter live weighed in his 5 fish and all were super solid fish, with the best going around 1.6kg. Pete has been finding stretchy Zman grubs fished super slow have been the go, loaded with scent.
