LAKE EUCUMBENE TROLLING AND SPINNING
Well what a great winter it has been the spinning and trolling has been at it’s best.
The trolling has been good from braemer bay down to seven gates with tassies and blades doing the work most colours are doing the job.
Spinning has been at it’s best with plastics and minnows best days are cloudy and windy days if the sun is out go to the deeper waters overall it’s been great from the top end to the bottom end of the lake.
the fishing: We headed to Hatchery Bay for a few hours and couldn’t entice a bite on either power bait or scrub worms. We moved around to Curiosity Rocks and managed to pick up this nice 4 1/2 lb brown on a worm.
Jasmine and I headed up to Jindy for a day trip on Sunday. It was a perfect day out on the water. We picked up a few good fish with this one easily being the biggest. It took a Rainbow Trout rapala CD7 and was chock-a-block full of yabbies.
EUCUMBENE BAIT FISHING
Bait fishing has been at it’s best with good reports coming from most areas around the lake.
Best bait has been worms and power bait and owe new bait yes we have a new bait out and it’s working a treat so when you’re in the store just ask the staff about the new bait!!!! we are happy to help you out
This winter has been one of the best and thing are going to Improve when the weather starts warming up
If you haven’t tried spinning with plastics yet you should the rainbows have been hitting them like a steam train and the browns well they love the yabby patterns so we have a few different plastics in the store and jig heads come and have a look remember we have free coffee as well.
Here is one for you.
Zlatko Djuric landed a 77cm Brown Trout off shore. He was using a F9 Rapala. It's the one that normally gets away. It had thick braid with hooks wrapped around its tail.
