Where to catch bream in the Swan? night time

Hi folks,

I’m actually looking for some catch and release fun sessions at night time, I’ve been to the Narrows and Canning Bridge but no much luck. How is Claremont Jetty doing at the moment? and what about Belmont, where to fish there?

No replys????? Iv gotenm at spots that do well during daylight around guildford, tide movement still seemed to be critical, bites stop when tide does. Used baits too. Might get the biguns venturing out at night feeding, so thered be more options as to where to fish, Im no breamer so not much help. Id be more likely to go to a likely mulla spot soak a big bait/livey and fish for bream etc whilst waitin


I am, as I've said, merely competent. But in an age of incompetence, that makes me extraordinary.

Thanks for replies,

I've been to Claremont jetty during the past three days (night till morning), tried for mulloway, chopper and bream, caught couple of flaties on softies, undersize chopper early morning, no runs on the big rig whatsoever.

try further up the river like ascot ect as black bream preffer brackish water which is basically a mix of fresh and salt water, i have fished there early mornings and cleaned up ( 14 bream and two flathead in two hours ) on lures and the thing is most of the bream were decent size 30 cm plus, were all caught and released so they should still be hanging around.


i am a mad keen fisher who will go fishing rain hail or shine

send us a message if you want to catch up for a cast

I got about ten around East Fremantle last week.  I find structure with as little light as possible works best.  If there is any lights around the blowies get in too fast
