Report 9/6/17

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Jun 09, 2017 4:26 pm

We continue to be provided with high pressure systems that are giving us this great weather. This will continue over the long weekend!

This is just a quick report this week as a lot of the reports are the same as the previous report.

Lake Eildon:
65.63% up 0.11% this week.
Fishing: 8.5/10.
Eildon has been great with a lot of trout being caught on the troll. As usual pink and white tassies are doing most the damage. Did talk to one angler this week and he used some ford fenders and picked up a few as the day went on. Big river area and the howqua spit area are very productive spots at the moment as a lot of trout are moving towards the rivers. The paceys Perch Bullet lure continues to pick up fish and the diawa double clutches have also claimed a few of recent. I have been chasing the schools of Redfin of late with great success. I have been trying different rigs and and plastics to great success. Drop shotting has been my favourite way to catch the Redfin at the moment. 2 favourite plastics at the moment are atomic Plazo jerk minnow and Berkley 8cm whipbait. White and motoroil the best colours. As winter is here the Redfin start to egg up and form very large schools. If your lucky enough to find one of these schools you can have hours and hours of fun and you generally find a few 40cm+ fish through the schools.

Good luck to the anglers competing in the dart cup this weekend, conditions are looking great. Look through our recent reports to see what's been the go the last few weeks.

William hovell continues to rise and anglers are reporting 20-35 cm trout being caught off the bank on scrub worms and power bait.

Have a great long weekend everyone!
