Fish Report - 14th June 2012

Well, we sure have seen our fair share of bad weather recently. Rain, cold and very windy weather has put a stop to offshore fishing.

The only fishing that has been done is in the rivers and dams, with the rivers producing some top quality fish.

Big bream seem to be the talk with all the rivers and creek systems producing some cracker bream of up to one kilo. Most of the bream have been caught along the rock walls. Best baits have been mullet fillets or chicken breast, along with lures such as Blades and Jackall Chubbys which have been hot favourites.

Some of the deeper holes in the rivers have been producing some big salmon. Also, an odd jack and fingermark have been taken on live baits such as mullet and sprat.

There has been a lot of juvenile mulloway jew caught in the rivers. Most are undersized so watch your size and bag limits. We have been catching these jewies on lures while chasing bream so the next year or so should seem them getting a bit bigger.

There is still a good run of mud crabs about for this time of year.

Bass are still on the chew out at the Isis Impoundment (Lake Gregory) with Jackalls, Blades and Slider soft plastics all producing big bass. Most of the bass are schooled up out in the middle of the dam, so sound them up and cast towards them. A slow retrieve has been best on the big bass.

Good fishing,
