First trip out for the year ...

It's been a strange year for me - no fishing since February due to working pretty much 7 days a week on owner-building my house.

Re: kayak trip

Don't forget about the excellent estuary perch fishing to be had in these locations, too. And for something not often associated with Victorian estuary fishing, there is some unbelievable big luderick fishing to be had around Marlo if you're into that sort of thing.

Re: Lakes Entrance Report

I think that's a Common Gurnard Perch - not a Gurnard as such:

Re: Tambo, Nicholson or Mitchell at this time of year

Why not the Nicholson? It's less fished than the others, and has plenty of big bream and flathead. Use lightly weighted spider crabs for the bream if you can get them - this will help ensure better sized fish.
