South Coast Creek Wanderings


Recommended Posts

G'day Raiders,

Well with a late start yesterday I decided to go wandering betwen a few of the creeks and rivers down hear on the south coast. First stop was a narrow section of the Tuross river. Started off throwing arund some 2" bulky Hawgs and it wasn't long before I had a nice fat 65cm Flattie at my feet. A few more hits followed but no hook-ups. Changed to a Juro firebait and was casting into a deeper eddy that produced a coupl eof nice bream (32 & 34cm) that were ripping through the bait school.

decided to move on and found myself at Coila creek road bridge. Chanded back to a 2" hawg in watermelon as ther was a lot of green weed on the bottom that giving the water that greeny tinge. I cast out towards the various bridge pylons which was aout 6' of water. Scored 3 bream here ranging from 26-35cm, All black bream.

On the way back home I came across a little naroow creek that looked perfect for Bass. Deep pockets with many a sunken tree. I decieded to stop and have a flick as I was unsure whether it was fresh or salt water. First cast into a snag with a resin headed flick bait I sighted big black bream come out for a look, a quick flick of the lure and BANG.... I was wresting her out of the snag, once I thought I was in the clear I backed off a little but she found another snag that I was able to work it out of and landed a beeautiful 43cm fork Blacky.

As i walked futher upstream a shiny thing in the water caught my eye. I put the ol glasses on and noticed there were 2 dead bream under a sunken tree. Not sure what may have happened to them but they were still in good nick with only minimal decay. Maybe polution????? I hope not
