Polaroiding Central Highlands

The highlight of any season usually revolves around the best days sight fishing. Memories of the hunt, approach, cast and hook set will remain in your mind long after those of another ‘flogged up’ have gone. The main prerequisite for this style of fishing are sunshine and cloudless days – two things that should become more plentiful from now until the end of the season. Good polaroiding water is not hard to find but some places are easier than others in which to find fish while others are simply better.Read more ...

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing -

Latest Brushy Lagoon Stocking

If you haven't checked the IFS website recently, Brushy Lagoon has been stocked in the last week with some good sized rainbow trout and atlantic salmon.  We fished the dam wall end this morning in Craig's brand new tinny.  We anchored up well clear of the dam wall in a 4 metre deep section of the lagoon.  Conditions were calm, but cold.

Both of us were using Strike Tiger 3" curl tail grub soft plastics in the 'spotted brew" and "pure gold" colours.  Action was a bit slow to start off with, but by lunch time we each had two thumping great big stockies in the boat!   We concluded our trip shortly after lunch with smiles all-round.  Craig was particularly happy after having christened his new toy.

My tip for anyone wanting to target these stocked fish - use bright coloured lures with plenty of in-built tail action.  This is especially important because the water is pretty murky out there at the moment as a result of the recent rainfall.  And don't forget, for those fishing from the shore - powerbait is a great option.

Go get em!

Cheers Mic
