21 Apr The Fishing report
Our systems produce quality fish both upper and lower reaches in all. Jack are still on the chew in both fresh and salt, as is the Barra! The temps are going to start cooling off so we need to start focusing on other species as this rolls in, so lets look at tips to catch Bream.
A typical Bream outfit would be a 2-4 kg Graphite rod and a small thread-line reel fed with around the 6lb range, with a 10-12lb leader. Bait tends to be a personal choice but sure bets are strip baits, chicken gut and if you are after the bigger on the spectrum then the ‘go to’ are definitely small crabs. The only problem with the crab as bait, is that the bigger of the species will go for it, so if you don’t get a hit, then there are no big Bream where you are fishing. Problem or not? I think not.
Deep holes will hold Bream. Target those that have a rocky bottom, but and I say BUT, not loosely as the holes need to have access to good cover. Bream are timid and need to know there is somewhere to duck and hide – this could be in the form of submerged timber, weed, pylons, boats etc.
Still water seems to be the consensus on this so the hour in or out of the tide turn is the best time. In saying that I have caught quality fish at any time of the tide. Present the right bait, fish where they are, berley up and you’ll find the fish, and boy what a sport Bream fishing is!
