Ballarat - Wendouree

Postby PDXSerric » Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:40 pm

Hey all. I've been waiting for the weather to change a little before hittng the waters again. I heard today they are taking Brownies in Lake Purrumbete on whiting and Tassie devils. Would love to go but it’s a bit out of my range atm, so I am trying something a little closer to home.

Has anyone shorefished Wendouree lately? Can anyone give me a recent report within, say, 50 km of Ballarat? (about as far as to Daylesford)? Are trout taking anything from the shore and if so, what (tassies, I presume) and where?

Heading out Sat morning so if I can get some good data soon that would be great.

Cheers!

PS: Picked up yet another Devil today at BCF as well as a spin shad (because, why not?") and some soft plastics. Fingers crossed!

Any luck at Wendouree of late?

I'm thinking of giving it a go over Christmas, as am seeing family in Ballarat. Have never fished it before.

Any advice for a landbased fisho?

Lures would be my go. Spinners and Tasso Devils for the most part I'd say

l have been fishing Wendouree a lot lately and have been catching a lot of rainbows using mudeyes but that is from a boat.
Today though while l was waiting to put my boat back on the trailer l saw a nice rainbow swimming across the boat ramp,so l think you would have a bit of luck landbased as well.
