Whiting are around the footbridge on pipis, mussels and sandworm, the floating pontoon has snapper. Surf beaches for salmon chasing metal lures, with gummies in closer to the beach. Offshore for snapper, pinkies and morwong.

Lake Tyers

Flathead and the odd silver trevally can be found around the shallow banks taking plastic’s, bream are about biting on local prawn. The lake has risen 1.5 metres at No 2- boat ramp which is making fishing a bit slow.

Best spot for bream is at the river mouth, with best results using spider crab, soft shell and prawn.

Tambo River

From the Three Gum’s heading down the river mouth for bream, preferred baits being spider crab, soft shell and local prawn.
