Tooliorook continues to produce great fish for us with the bigger fish just keep on coming in. Tassies in blue/pink & lumo pink have dominated as well as the Diawa double clutch. Bait is also working well here with Mudeyes & Power bait taking nice fish.
Anglers to enjoy these beaut fish are Darryl Lutrell, Paul Rahman, Jake Leach, Shane Collins, Dick Lane, David Higginbotham, Jarrod Day, Kevin Hoffman, Benji Lang, Ian Flys.
The yearly run of great rainbows hasn't happened as yet, so look out in the coming weeks for some great action.

Spent the 2nd, 3rd & 4th August at Toolondo in terrible conditions with Darryl O'Shannessy and Paul Walker for a return of 6 fish. The size has dropped away here, but only temporary as they are almost spawning now, so there will be some great results  very soon. Both lures & mudeyes continue to account for fish here.
All Grampians lakes are starting to produce great fish now with water flowing into most. Lake Fyans & Wartook being the standouts.

Lake Bolac
Bolac as usual produces some xtra large rainbows, but can be very weather affected too and discolour quickly. Live minnows & power bait have the bank fisho's hooking up & trolling Lumo pink tassies working well for boat & yak fishermen.

Bullen Merri/Purrembete
These two Great Lakes continue to both excite and frustrate many fisherman. Browns have been up to 4.5kgs both flat lining & down rigging. Bait also accounts for many fish here, mudeye, scrub worms & power bait doing the job. Live minnow & gudgeon also are deadly here.

Deep lake
Derrinallum's little hidden treasure continues to give up both browns & rainbows to bank & boat anglers. Jake Leach has taken some real gems here in the past few weeks on mudeyes & trolling tassies.

With continued rain and good water flows into most lakes, we can expect some fantastic fishing in the coming weeks. Bait should become easier to obtain and spring is not far away now. Redfin should start to reappear soon when water temps go up.
Don't forget to fish those inlet areas where some fresh water & inflow of nutrients & bait will have fish lurking. Hard to go past a scub worm here! Look for the "edge water" where clean & dirty water meet in the ambush zone.
Thanks to all for your support on the Charters and look forward to seeing you all again.

Look out for us on Facebook with a like & share competition with the winner getting a days fishing with myself & Jarrod Biles, plus a great prize pack.
