I don't always fish for them mate contrary to the belief held on here lol. If I did I'd be a lot better at it .
I goi when I think I have half a chance of landing one that's all there is to it.
However in saying that last 2 troops to patto were donuts for me.

I'm on a mission this year to target bream a bit more and get a few out of the maribyrnong river walking the banks on hard bodies and cranka crabs. We should tee up a session one day


yeah sounds likie a plan, ive never fished the nong yet so thats something i got to do.



Thats what I do! :) :-D

Live close to the nong. Just have to fish the high tide periods , when the fish are up closer to the bank.
An Sx40 works fairly well for me, I find the plastics get snagged too often when fishing landbased, unless you go 1/40oz and let it float back with the current.

Cranka Crabs are great, but after i got busted off the first time i tied one on, i decided not to throw them landbased.

Anywhere around Anglers Tavern, give me a shout and ill head down. Usually can combine , walking the dog and catching bream.


Sounds awesome mate. I got a few sx40s that are hanging to see water! When are your favorite times of year to fish the nong?

Disclaimer: I am no Bream Expert. Got into it only last year.

Summer was amazing. Just time your fishing with the advent of high tide, if you get that with a sunset\sunrise , you are in for a ripper session.
IF all else fails, drop a bait in , lightly weighted prawn around dusk and you will struggle to keep a bait in the water.
There is always more to learn , fish to catch , places to see and friends to make.

I’m givin the river a crack tomorrow! Haven’t tried in a while n the conditions suite my free time! I usually try anywhere from the angling club up to Edgewater lake my lure variety is a little low but I’m confident I can tempt one (famous last words) Anyone got a hot tip on colour choice? Got a savage minnow I’m thinking is gonna be the standout. Though last time I was there got a couple on a all black crank bait

I like anything green or brown for bream :thumbsup:
Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:
