Mersey Bream

Fished the Mersey Estuary Sunday morning with good friend Andy Heyhow, as the tide had turned and had been running out for an hour we fished the flats at the golf course hoping to find the bream still cruising the shallow margins. We drifted with the run out for stealth but found nothing doing.  We headed back to the channel off Quoiba and flicked plastics along the edges and soon come up tight on a cracker around the 2kg mark, after testing my drag to the limits for 5 minutes I had him beside the boat and the net in the water when the hook pulled and flew past my head.

Mersey River Report

by Leigh Carpenter Hit the Mersey River middle reaches at dawn Sunday morning in search of Bream and fishing with plastics.
Landed one on a Squidgy bloodworm 100mm, nice fish 1.98kg and 48cm long.  We fished the low tide mark were the water quickly drops off into the channel along the oyster racks that run along the southern shore.  Keep your lure down deep and retrieve as you would for trout.

Mersey River at Bells Parade, Latrobe

Leroy Tirant
The Bells Parade area at Latrobe seems at first glance an unlikely fishing spot. The Latrobe council has done a magnificent job at this park area and in conjunction with groups such as Rotary they have bar-b-que's, gazebo's and children's play equipment not to mention the well manicured lawns. But it's the magnificent fishing that's on offer here that were going to talk about.
