In the eaton stretch of the collie have witness some thumpers pulled from the bowling club scout hall and from the jetty. Have ahd a couple of big takes from a spot in the australind section and a couple of weeks pulled a decent sized bream from the pylons there. Mates get alot from down behind houghies in eaton and also at the clifton park jetty. They are there found mullet to be the best bait and heard 2 inch minnows in pumpkin seed are your best sps not sure about hb's

go atomic hardz or halco

Wed, 2009-11-11 07:05

learn how to use them before you step up to $25-30 lures.

gold colour works well in the darker water.

river to sea micro vibes are killer for the $

good luck

find the salt/freshwater mix and you will find bream

Wed, 2009-11-11 07:12

also the fresher will stop the blowies.

i'v fished the collie for bream and never caught a blowie.

try up the elbow or the junction of the brunswick and higher.

if ya dont score a bream in 10 minutes keep moving.

dont cast out into the middle of the river, hug the snags and wood.

you may loose some gear but gota be in habitat.

hang on and bull them out

yea pretty good with snags

Wed, 2009-11-11 07:16

yea the snags arent to much of a prob coz we have a small flat bottom boat and can move around to try and budge the snags but yea we still lose a few...mainly when fishing from the bank.

me and me dad are thinking of going down to the capel river this evening to have a crack at the reddies...never tried the capel but heard good reports.

there are some good bream in the collie

Wed, 2009-11-11 07:27

but like all bream fishing you gota find the fish so keep moving around.

sounds like you know your stuff just gota find them mate.

never fished the capel for reddies, used to catch them by the bucket load as kids (over east though). mates always fishing the warren and scoring heaps.

good luck and keep us posted

never hurts to fill in your profile so we can align answers to your questions

the pylons under the collie

the pylons under the collie bridge would be great just gotta get the bait down deep enough to avoid the blowies. on the bottom works best i think...

anyone got them off of the bridge???

Trick

Fri, 2009-11-20 20:10

One of the tricks I used to use when chasing blackies up the Collie was to spot a peppermint tree over hanging the water and give it a good shake ,dropping all the ants that live in them a swim.Burley supplied just drop an unweighted bait in and let it drift down.There was a good patch of them near the mouth of Millar's creek that always were worth a look.

If you go there in the day

Sat, 2010-02-27 17:23

If you go there in the day time it is crawling with blowies but at night time the blowies dissapear and as soon as you drop your bait near any pylon of the jetty it runs away and then you just pull a bit and youve got yourself a bream. Was rather surprised when i first tried because i was only expecting blowies.
