Mollymook Beach at times may look featureless, but don’t let that fool you. It can be one of the best beaches in the region.

Summer lake bream
Jamie Robley | November 2014

Local angling identity Glenn Helmers with a Lake Macquarie bream caught by working a surface lure along a rocky point. This fish was hooked mid-morning, but it generally pays to be on the water nice and early.

Through our warmest time of year, the coastal lakes of the Central Coast can really fire up with bream luring opportunities.
