Well what a last couple of weeks we have had on the charters! Some beaut results coming form Tooliorook at Lismore. Browns have been no smaller than 2 kg and Paul Rahmans fantastic 4.03 kg being the standout. The lake continues to produce fish of this quality along with the occasional rainbow turning up too. Brad + Steve Andrews, Ray + Carl Doolan and Corey Green being amongst bank anglers to do well here on power bait and lures with Corey scoring a nice fish on fly. Best lures currently are tassie devils in pink,white or gold wing types. Strike pro bob n spoon has also tagged a few. We went back to basics one day last week and used the gold crocodile to coax a big brown out of hiding. Trolling and casting to shallows or weed beds has been best methods. Trolling speed is critical and it is important to get his right and gauge it by running your lures beside the boat and varying until you get the correct action. Many people ask what they are doing wrong and most times it is trolling speed is too fast.

Nearby Deep Lake at Derrinallum also has produced both browns and rainbows both from the bank and in the boat.  Powerbait or Mud eyes under a bubble float and casting lures from the bank has produced a few fish. Trolling tassies and hard body minnow types also have done well.

Purrembete and bullen merri have some XL size browns coming out by all methods. It trolling  lures has been most effective. But bank anglers are a good chance here too with minnow, gudgeon and mudeyes the prime offerings.

Lake Bolac continues to produce rainbows to both bank and boat anglers with live minnow the best bait or frozen white bait or glassies also taking fish.

As there has been rain it's time to chase up a few scrub worms and offer them as most trout can't resist them. Jake Leach has done well in most lakes with scrubbies.

Toolondo is still the standout lake in the Grampians and also offers some great browns and rainbows to 3 kg. Redfin are quiet here currently but with the days getting longer they should make a significant return very soon. Trolling will see you hooked up in no time but bait has also taken its fair share too with scrubbies, mudeye and power bait doing well.

All other Grampians lakes are on the comeback trail and continue to improve with significant number of new releases un leashed by the DPI. Wartook is a Great Lake that flys under the radar but rarely fails to produce both trout and Redfin. Lake Fyans is bouncing back too with a good flow going in and stock being released too.

This coming week we fish Tooliorook, purrembete, bullen merri, maybe deep lake and later in the week and next weekend Toolondo so stay tuned for the results.

Thanks to all the clients on the charter the last few weeks and the coming ones, may we continue to produce great fish for you.

Trevor.
