Summer is here again! and with it comes warmer waters and changes with some fish species and their habits.
This year the water is very clear making the fish quite shy and easily spooked. Fishing close to or even into the oyster leases will improve the catch as this is where the fish shelter during the day.
Early morning or late in the day, in the lower light times, are more productive as the fish move out from their shelter into open waters.
This season has seen some schools of very big TREVALLY and if hooked on your light bream gear will test your fishing skills to the fullest.
Once again the SAND WHITING have arrived in big numbers, their favourite bait is Live Worms which we generally have at the Boatshed.
FLATHEAD are being caught regularly on Whitebait or Mullet strips, but now the water has warmed up they are taking the soft plastics much more readily.
If the kids are keen to get out and catch a fish or just have a swim we have a comprehensive, coloured map of the Wallis Lake and can direct you to an excellent fishing or swimming spot.
Blue Swimmer Crabs also become very active during the Summer and can be caught in Witches Hat nets set away from the main boating channels.
The prawn run will start around January 10, and should provide some good hauls for about a week from that date.
Remember WE SELL LIVE BEACH WORMS AND FROZEN FISHERMAN PACKS RIGHT THROUGH THE SUMMER MONTHS
