A wonderful spell of sunny weather, has favoured those who ventured out with children over the school holidays.
Fishing has been patchy, with some of the better results occurring when there has been that much desired ripple on the water. Fishing on the drift using Wrigglers has produced some great bags for those who have persevered. Morning has been the best time, with most afternoons very quiet. Sandworm and local frozen Prawn are the best baits, and with plenty of moves, are giving fair results. Once it becomes flat calm, bites can be scarce, however, you never know as some of the best sessions reported to me have been just before dark. You need to be rugged up with plenty of warm clothing, as at that time of the day it is freezing cold.
We had low water in the Lake last week, and the low tides have affected the surf until now.
With 60mls of rain, and strong winds over the last couple of days, the surf has been huge, and that could sort out the beaches. The Bemm River is in flood, and the water level in the lake is very high. GOOD FISHING TO ALL. Don Cunningham.
