Deeper water near banks and shore breaks provide cover
for bream. Try the dead ends of deeper gutters where white water is
washing food into these deeper areas
Surf Fishing for Bream
||There are several things you will notice that
differentiate surf caught bream from their river, creek and other
still water brethren and that is their colour and shape.
Bright silver bream that are longer and slimmer than the dark
olive bronze colouration found on estuary caught fish.
Their habitat is changed also, no oyster encrusted cover to
hide in here, deep holes and gutters covered by varying amounts of
white water close by banks and prowling the shore break only
metres from the beach is the hunting ground for these shining
Pippis, yabbies, hardiheads, and other small whole baitfish are the
food source here as well as fresh cut flesh baits. Locally caught and
collected baits being best.
3kg to 6 kg line matched with No 1 to 2/0 hooks will be required to
target what is on average usually a larger class of fish and other larger
species that will be encountered.
Traces of 45cm to a metre allow the bait to waft around above a pea
size to 7 ball sinker depending on surf and wash conditions.
Light to medium surf rods are a good choice, with surf bream biting
well at times regardless of the time of day.
caught silver bream from the surf beach are clean and mean.
More often an incidental catch when targeting other species such
as salmon and tailor, big surf bream will attack larger baits and
can become an annoyance as pilchards, mullet fillets and bonito is
stripped from hooks meant to catch larger species.
|Quality Bream and Great Taste
In some of our now polluted water ways, bream can be a very
questionable addition to the table. Surf bream on the other hand
look good and taste even better. Firm white flesh with a little
squeezed lemon is simple and will have you back looking to catch
