Always has been quite a challenging lake and this week has proved no different, the fish are very spread out in the main basin and very tight lipped. The larger points in the main basin are holding good numbers of fish, fishing soft plastics and spoons have accounted for the larger fish, with even more cold weather settling in casting suspending Jerkbaits like the Jackall squirrel around the weeded edges is always another great alternative to catching these fish.
Somerset this week has produced some quality fish just not in big numbers, the Kirkliegh flats and the top of queen street are holding the majority of fish, Plastics, Spoons and Tailspinners have been the pick of the lures for the casting anglers. Keeping your lure tight to the bottom is key to getting a reaction from these shut down fish.
Good fishing starting to get picked up and the numbers are slowly starting to get better, The flats out from Billys bay has produced the most fish, plastics and spoons being the go too lures. The early morning bite on the edge has still been there with anglers catching some big yellow belly, the lure of choice for these fish have been deep diving hardbodies, targeting the deeper rock walls has proven successful.
By far the pick of our local lakes, no camping is aloud at the moment due to the camp grounds being closed during Covid but anglers have made the trip for the day and have had amazing success, any of the main lake points is holding good numbers of fish, Leezagangs ledge, pelican Point and the Junction for example. Soft plastics probably being the standout for most while Spoons and tailspinners are still getting huge numbers of fish.
This Cod lake has come into its own over the last few weeks with consistent numbers of fish being caught, the colder weather has pushed these cod onto the shallow timbered flats and the topwater and swimbait bite has proven to be red hot. one of our local anglers had an amazing morning session boating 5 fish 2 over the magic meter mark.
