Mersey River Report
by Leigh Carpenter Hit the Mersey River middle reaches at dawn Sunday morning in search of Bream and fishing with plastics.
Landed one on a Squidgy bloodworm 100mm, nice fish 1.98kg and 48cm long. We fished the low tide mark were the water quickly drops off into the channel along the oyster racks that run along the southern shore. Keep your lure down deep and retrieve as you would for trout.
We caught plenty of small flathead (enough size one's for a couple of feeds) and had plenty of fun.
Was back home in time for a late breakfast, if you want a bit of a challenge and a lot of fun get out to your local estuary and give it a go, the prize can be great and the “by catch” will keep you interested.
