 .Winter fishing at Bemm has high,s and low,s, but the fishing can be great. The downside is the cold wind that can prevail for days on end.Rain usually has an effect, but the wind will make or break your trip to Bemm.
       When a break does come I recommend you get out there. It is going to be different, the Bream seem to school up at these times, so it is critical to fish where the fish are. I find that Bream will be found in certain depths. Generally as the water cools, fish move into deeper water. At the moment Bream can be found in about 1.8 metres.
       This winter the Bream are biting best late in the day, and local prawn is the best bait.I am having pretty good results using plastics and vibes. Bream will close down at times, even though your fish finder is indicating lots of fish,so it is a challenge and I love it. Winter time has benefits, it can be very quiet. I have been on my own out there, and had mornings where nothing happens, not even a bite.
        This weekend we were able to fish, the water was very dirty on Saturday and fishing was tough. Sunday the water cleared up, and I spoke to a group of happy anglers at the boat ramp, who were cleaning some good fish. I had a productive afternoon session, and my biggest fish was a Trevally over a kilo.
         The lake is open, and we can only hope that during this time other species come in.
Salmon, Taylor, Trevally, Luderick, and maybe some yellow eye Mullet. The days are getting longer, and I intend to patrol the channel on the full tide with a lot of hope.

Good weather, with fish hard to find. Best bait has been peeled prawn, with a few Bream taking vibesThe best news of the month, has been the repairs carried out on the boat ramp, which was a huge safety issue. A skim of concrete has levelled off the ramp, and has secured the blocks.
The surf has fired up, and Salmon are taking lures. The lures can negate any problems with crabs, which can be a problem at times.
