    Yeah definately understand what your saying I must be doing something right I fished at North Haven in my yak landed my first 28cm bream on plastics. Just like others have suggested they are just over fed by residents. Below I've attached two pictures of my first bream. Sent from my CPH1851 using Tapatalk

    If you ask 10 fisherpeople about what works best for them with Bream on plastics you'll more than likely get 10 different answers. If it was too easy there would be no satisfaction in your eventual success. Read and watch as much info as you can handle, but at the end of the day the only way to learn what works for you in any particular location is to get out there and keep casting. Good luck and cast with confidence. Look forward to seeing a post from you of a West Lakes Bream with a SP hanging out of it's gob.

    Yeah when Rex Hunt said the dominant hand should be on the rod, I made the switch and havent regretted it. re the soundtrack - I first heard his skills the other day and thought it suited the Swampy feel I was going for

    Pickled squid

    Here's a recipe for pickled squid that i use for pickling all the left over bits such as the flaps and tentacles.Its easy as but the squid takes a little bit of preparation before you start.First up i like to freeze the squid so you can pickle it when you want and also it breaks up the structure of the squid to make it more tender.Then i like to peel the skin off the flaps and chop up the tentacles(even the bit behind the head is tasty).Now to make up the brew here's what you need white vinegar 1 litre lemon juice a decent splash crushed garlic 1 teaspoon chilli 1 teaspoon 1 bottle of praise italian dressing black pepper mixed italian herbs 1 teaspoon now put all of it in a saucepan and bring to the boil and chuck in your first batch of squid bits and bring back to the boil for 1 minute and then remove the squid,if you have anymore chuck that in and do the same etc etc this adds flavour to the brew as well as blanching the squid. now chop up the squid into bits This is "important" you must let the pickling mixture cool right down or it will overcook your squid when cool chuck the squid in jars and pour the mixture over the top put in the fridge and resist the temptation to sample your squid for 4 days then get stuck in,you can add more chilli or pepper etc but don't use salt or it will toughen your squid.......Enjoy

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    I certainly don't have this done pat by any means, hell, only my 3rd go - over past 18 months So I filleted the Tommies and butterflied the Gar and put them in a brine of 1lt water, 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup of brown sugar and in the fridge for 24 hours+. Got my 'deluxe' Mojiko smoker ready but only had Samba Poultry/Pork chips, so they had to do. Smoke vent was only just open a tad and smoking well. Thought maybe 45 minutes but this 30 minutes in, so them off. Look over done to me compared to other that have a darkish tan, but they tasted ok - a little dry maybe. The Gar didn't have as much darkness to it and the taste was milder than the tommies. Practice, Practice and Practice ...... and catch more fish would help too

    Wading bags

    I’ve developed quite the mid section over the off season, so I reckon the wading bag will stay put and not swing around too much. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Wading bags

    I've tried a scaling bag like surfcazta suggests. Does work also, but found it got in the way, mainly around my legs. I only use my wading bag when luring for salmon and doesn't interfere for me.

    I got the std one and quite sufficient. Had for a couple of years now and still as strong when new.

    Wading bags

    If you are standing in the water then may be a scaling bag tied to the belt might be more convenient,i got a Alvey bag and found it awkward casting lures or when standing knee deep the scaling bag will keep the fish alive.Just another option. https://www.bcf.com.au/p/neptune-scaler-bag/127061.html https://www.hookedonline.com.au/jarvis-walker-fish-keeper-bag-with-2-inch-mesh-dra

    I've got the normal one. Not really much to them. Not sure why you would buy the deluxe one. the normal one has enough storage for tools.

    Yeah those bow and arrow casts can come in handy in dense cover - and they are pretty accurate over short distances

    If you have a Yak then bream in Westlakes are easy and plentiful. All the pontoons hold bream. If you are struggling with lures then throw on a bit of bait on the jighead and throw it near the pontoon like a lure. Pilchard, worm, prawn and squid all work. If you don't want to use bait then throw on a gulp. Trolling also produces a lot of bream for me. I use duel hardcore, Bushy's stiffy minnow and SX40 trolling for ST every winter and usually pick up a few bream bycatch.

    Certainly will be.... coming up to Big Mulloway time again...some decent numbers of salmon trout already in the river. Lots of mullet around as well. Bream in the creeks have been consistent & will get bigger as the colder weather starts to roll in. Nice pan size Snapper around as well....I'm having a ball with this nice weather around.

    WLs isn't easy compared to other systems. Certainly there's plenty of fish in there but what works elsewhere doesn't always work in there. I'm no expert fishing WLs but you need to think more about where you're fishing, at what time of the day. There's more to it than that but it takes perseverance. If I had a dollar for every time I scored a donut in WLs... Imo the fish in WLs have it pretty easy because they get fed by residents and the system is on most days being replenished by sea twice a day. I've had days there where I've presented virtually every lure I own at them and 90% of the time they won't even take a sideways look. If they do, they might follow briefly then turn their noses at it. There's many plastics that work on bream in WLs, I'm not going to make any suggestions because I'm guessing that if you chase bream on plastics you most likely already own the ones that work and it's no secret. Good luck with it. I might fish it myself Saturday A.M

    I am Sorry a lot will not agree , but I have tried the lure thing , and soft plastics , maybe I have no patience , so I stick with bait , live bait or fresh cockles ,worms ,clickers what ever , maybe I am no good at lure fishing , but I cant stand fishing for 3hrs casting lures , and then try again for 6 hours for maybe one fish , F@#k that , bait for me . IMHO

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Still don't look half bad, Doobie. Don't mind a bit of "fish jerky" myself when things are in a touch too long I've done away with the wet brine myself and just sprinkle with salt and sugar before smoking now, saves a lot of time and I don't notice the difference tbh.

    If using mono line no real need for a leader. I use 3lb straight through fluorocarbon and love it for flicking plastics and hardbodies. If you feel like you need a leader i use the albright knot. Its simple to tie and nice and strong. I prefer this knot as its easy to tie with my chunky fingers...

    My first kingfish

    I did keep this one being my first to try and see what it was like. I bled it, gut and gilled before leaving and had it in an ice slurry all the way home. I actually thought it tasted really nice when we cooked it up. Had two servings, one fillet was cut down to smaller fillets and shallow fried in breadcrumbs, and the other was beer battered with lemon pepper seasoning.
