With some hideous weather the last few days, most anglers have been kept of the water. For those keen enough to battle the 30knt winds and rain, plenty of Brown Trout up to 5lb and quality Redfin have been taken from the Merri and Hopkins Rivers. Tackle Shack staff members Scott and Dylan have been finding plenty of fish on lures such as the Nomad Styx Minnows, Rapala Xrap 06’s and the Norries Laydown Minnows. With the weather cooling and river levels rising, now is a great time to grab a few lures and go for a walk along one of the rivers.
