Morrissey's Creek Bream

Dad and I took his 530 Quintrex Coast Runner for a run down to Morrissey's Creek today. I'm not that keen on creek fishing, but he wanted to check it out. With the cold water I didn't hold out much hope for anything big, but a bream or two wouldn't go astray.

We collected some live bait and headed to the mouth for a look around. The tide was slowing and about to turn. We tied up among a likely looking set of sticks. Dad put out a live bait, but I went straight to prawn in search of Bream. And it didn't take long for the first bite! Over the next hour we went quickly through a 1kg packet of prawns. We kept five fish over 30cm, and released a dozen in the 25cm range.

We then moved up the creek with the live bait to try for something bigger, but all we managed on was a small cod. I will have to get him back down there when the water warms back up later in the year. I use to know this creek pretty good when I had my old boat. I always managed some good fingermark and the odd Barra.
