Trout fishing has been a great option of late with strong winds and big seas keeping most anglers landlocked. The past several days has seen the rivers continue to rise and the fish have been extra keen to smack a lure. A couple of the Tackle Shack boys fished Sunday arvo and found plenty of Browns either side of 3lb. Lures of choice were the Berkley T-tail’s and Rapala X-rap 06’s. Other anglers have also had fantastic success from both the Merri and Hopkins, with many fish in the 2-5lb range hitting the bank.
