BEMM RIVER ANGLING CLUB.
Most anglers enjoyed productive sessions in the river over the last week using sandworm and prawn.
Lure anglers drifted using plastics and vibes catching and releasing many Bream.
Large quantities of Bream are moving up the river, but undersized Bream are dominating the catches. Care must be taken with these small fish, cut them off and quickly return them to the water.
The Lake is worth a try around the River mouth. The area between the mouth of the Channel, and toward the River mouth has been rewarding.
The cold wind really set in on the weekend which made fishing hard going.
The Bruthen and Bemm River Angling Clubs were faced with challenging conditions. The weather never let up, so it was encouraging to report that Bruthen anglers persevered and weighed in a few nice Bream, as well as well as an Estuary Perch out of the snags in the River. One angler fished under the the bridge on Saturday morning, and landed a few Bream. It was freezing cold, and most Bemm anglers didn’t fish. Sunday was tough going again and size fish were hard to find.
A 41 cm Trout was landed on a lure at the bridge, as well as a few small Trout that came in and were released. A great effort by the Bruthen members who out fished the Bemm A/C who only weighed in one Bream.
A very hard earned victory to Bruthen Angling Club.
BEMM RIVER FISHING REPORT
The entrance remains open, and the tides have been high with the water clearing.
Anglers are having success, with Bream, Luderick and Trevally to be found.
Cold wet and windy days determine the areas that can be fished, and the River and Bobs Bay Area have provided protection from the wind. This is when an anglers experience pays off. Rug up and choose your times to fish.
With better conditions to come, visitors have a lot to look forward to. The mighty Bemm could turn it on like old times.
Just to target Bream is a great option, however finding the big Luderick around the mouth of the Channel seems like a possibility this year.
A few flathead have been showing up, and they are getting a better size.
With the Channel holding Trevally, anglers will have many choices to make, and I am sure there will be some great sport to be had in the coming months.
Because of the weather conditions there is not a lot to report from the surf.
Just a reminder to all members that our weekend trip to Lake Tyers is coming up on the 18th and 19th of November, and we will be drawing our major raffle for the year.
GREAT FISHING TO EVERYONE.
