After a week of Westerly winds and cooler temp’s the weekend forecast is looking-up. Bread & butter species have been the way to go this week.
Bream reported on the Breakwall on unweighted salted pilchard baits. 8-Year-old Micheal Perekovic nailing a 38cm model. Moving into the winter months the bream will really start to switch on. Bream are a scavenger feeder and will take a wide variety of baits and lures. Some key spots in the Bay for bream are the break-walls, any of the wharfs, Wanda Headland, the short-cut, piggy’s rock wall just to name a few. Bream from the main Breakwall on prawn and or fish bait. Best method for bream 00 running ball sinker onto a 1/0 Mustad Penetrator hook and let the fish take the bait and swim away before striking. Use the bait runner feature on your reel or if not then perhaps consider opening the bail arm to let line peel off freely. Fish at the end of the wall. If fishing night and early morning then berley with chicken pellets or similar for best results.
The blackfish have continued to chew on weed and cabbage baits from the main Breakwall try a 6lb FC leader for more ‘downs.’ Reports of fish from the inside near Simba on weed baits. Tony & Nic Young doing well on Monday before the wind. The key spots are the main Breakwall and Anchorage inside wall near the pipe. Fish 1 hour each side of the tide, heaps of rich berley with each cast, let that float hold under for a few seconds before striking which will increase your hook-up rate.
