Bream and Softies Advice

Hey all,

My mate is pretty down atm, after being laid off a while ago is pretty rock bottom and struggling with it all. He asked if I would take him to maybe catch a few bream, so I have said I would help out, but have not a whole lot of idea about bream. I have a couple of flick rods, and thought we could use some soft plastics or lures, but not too sure on what to get, as I normally fish anywhere not the river. Any advice would be great thanks

hey thatnks, any suggestions as a place to start trying. Not asking for your spots, but something a little more than in the river would be helpful. Really hoping to try get at least 1

Because of the lack of rains

Because of the lack of rains I would start at Guildford, you could try the Guildford Rd bridge or Kings Meadow both have been fishing well. Further down you could try Sandy Cape at Bassendean and Claughton Reserve near the Redcliffe Bridge. There are several other places down river from here that you could also try.

Having said this the Bream are harder to catch in winter and I would be looking at using bait instead of soft plastics. Just get some river prawns and some Gamakatsu Shiners and fish unweighted, unless there is a strong current then use a small bean sinker. With these hooks let the bream take the bait before you strike, they basically hook themselves with the shiners. 

 

Hope this helps.
