bream fishing

Post by Willy » Mon Aug 02, 2010 6:18 pm

G-day. i got my 1st kilo bream on the weekend with a few more not far off. i have only been targeting them for the past few weeks. i found a method that is very simple and works well for bream fishing. i fish the shallow on the incoming tide high tide and run out. i found about 3 to 4 hours in to the moon rise to be best time at night. i use live nipper's with no lead just drifting them out leaving the bail arm open awaiting for the run. I use a 2 O hook with the nipper's not a long shank. I feed the hook up the tail pull it under the back legs not the head then pull the hook between the head and nipper. drift out and wait. I am still playing around with line class as i am fishing 4 pound mono on 1 rod and 6 on the other. I have not had a problem getting the kilo bream in with the 4 pound but i have been busted off with some larger ones on 6 pound. i will have ago at some 8 pound braid but its no fun when its easy.

good report mate, its always good to see people posting reports on BIG bream.

instead of live nippers, try soft plastics and lures. there are hundres of imitating plastics out there. try the Berkley Craw or Squidgie Lobbie as a nipper replacement. you may be surprised.

keep the reports coming.

i have been using 3 inch pumpkin seed minnow grubs for flat head and get some great flat head but i have not found a good one for bream yet. altho i do shop at k mart as gulp and other big brands are half the price of big named tackle shops. just gotta wait for them to get a bigger range. can not justify paying big dollars for sp's and lures. yabby's are free

i nail flatheads galore with 3" pumpkinseed gulp wrigglers. but have found the 2" jelly prawn n baby prawns a killer with the bream. I use 2lb braid 4lb leader and try not to use anything heavier than a 1/12th ( ill go to 1/8th if im around in some spots i have at the Pin when it can be a bit stronger).
