Re: Docklands

Those docks trevs taste weird... but maybe that's just me. They are pretty fun to catch though, SPs do work pretty well on them but you need to drop the hook size

Re: Bream fishing at Tambo and Mitchell

Theres also a shop opposite a BP just past Bairnsdale that usually sells sandworms and crabs. The crabs will get you the bigger models but less bites. If you just want to catch a fish then banana prawns from woolies go ok too, cut into small bits

Re: why so shy

Fish after dark. Or be really sneaky. Cant even let them see your shadow. Keep moving around. You'll work it out one day

Re: docklands last week

It fishes best after some rain when the water is murky. When the water is clear you need light line and small sinkers. Otherwise fish early morning or night time in low light. Bream should be feeding deeper now that water temps cooled down.

Re: docklands last week

Also most fish at the docks are near structure. i.e. straight down, don't cast it out. Especially the bream. Not all, but i get a lot more casting parallel to the pier

Re: docklands last week

Depends what you're after.

Mussels will get you bream. So will yabbies. Pilchard/chicken/prawn will also work for pinkies and trevs

Or be adventurous and try the live pinky on a float

Re: Top 10 Carp fishing spots round Melbourne

Ive only heard stories of carp at Karkarook. Never seen any but im sure they are in there. Not as many as other lakes though. But definitely lots of reddies, and trout after stockings

Re: Micro squid jigs from Japan

I reckon i need to try them again either without a sinker or more distance between the jig and sinker. Will give them another go and let you know how it goes
