Yesterday I had the opportunity to hit the Port River for a bream session with Greg Wirth, someone I consider one of the best Bream fisherman in SA (We have a few
We met at the boat ramp at 6 am to an overcast start to the day with a few showers about (even saw lightening in the distance) we headed up river to give the Austackle Project B Banana Boat lures a try.
Conditions weren't suited for the Banana Boats so after about 20 mins we opted for deep water, so I went straight for the Austackle Sugar Glider.
The Sugar Glider (SG) is a vibe style/stick minnow. Best is to cast them out, let them sink to the bottom and then with a quick wrist flick get the SG to vibrate up of the bottom and then flutter back down. The 'vibe' from the SG is much more subtle than a normal vibe or blade making it a good lure for spooky fish.
If fishing in deep water, let them sink to the bottom, a quick wrist flick or 2 to get it to vibe up off the bottom, then wind up the slack and continue this to work the SG through the water column until you get a hit.
We fished many spots on the river, managed to get 1 bream on the SG in Black Chevron and dropped 2 good one's, bit over zealous & pulled the hooks
Got a few Salmon Trout and I'm not sure what it is
the little brown & white fish....
Gear of choice for today, Austackle Featherlight 2-5kg rod, Cruz 2500 reel, Project B 10lb braid, Project B 6lb fluro leader and Sugar Glider in Black Chevron
Thank you to my host for the day, Greg, a gentleman and all round good guy
