Barwon river

Postby bowl » Mon Apr 25, 2016 7:23 pm

Me n mate arrived at barwon around 5 pm.
Sheepwash was packed ,so headed around ocean grove side n found a spot up from boat ramp along breakwall...

Mate purchased A plastic bait trap from bcf....biggest waste of money.

Got of to good start with mid 30s trevally.

Couple of undersized salmon....
Went quiet so moved to sheepwash around 7,
.
Full moon n water was glass...small salmon n no mullet ,which we needed for live bait for mulloway.
Pulled up stumps at midnight

I love fishing the Barwon, a lot of anticipation and the occasional great session. Does anyone know if you are allowed to fish from the pedestrian bridge? I used to fish the bridge a lot in the winter months many years ago.

What did you used to get from the bridge?

Salmon, occasional squid at slack high water, unwanted flat bastards of various shapes/species, mullet, the odd trevally, mate got an elephant one time. Hooked and lost two jews, landed a smallish 7gill in my jew hunt. I've still not landed a jew in Vic.

I've been thinking about targeting the Barwon a bit more again and the pedestrian bridge would be great, but I can't find a definite answer (not that I've ring the council or anything yet). I can't help but think it would be frowned upon, but who is going to police it at 2am on a high tide under a new moon?

I was in Barwon Heads on the w/end and saw a few fishing from the bridge, also down on the beach beside it, looked like a better spot there.

Thanks! One of the reasons I used to prefer the bridge was for bigger baits and lives under a float to avoid tangled rigs and excess big flat bastards.

Nice one, my mate got a 8kg Jew from there over the weekend and a heap of bug salmons he was more towards the start of the river, that bridge holds a lot of big Jews, I usally take the boat up and the river always get good size trevallys there. That's pretty much my trevallys spot other then queenscliff.
