Now is the time for some big musselcrackers so heavy tackle is a must. The kob should be coming out very soon as well and you are in the perfect area for both species. Tight lines

For the lake....target grunter... drift without sinker connected, very small swivel and light line, place mud prawns up your line from hook end.

Allow baited prawn to just bounce along the bottom.

Wow, what an informative write up!
Thanks for this, wishing you many more big catches!

Also I have spoke to the guy from the tackle shop who said there is kob being produced their currently and that the mouth is closed they are waiting for it to open naturally.

Packed some of my tackle last night only to find my worker broke my pvc pump.
Hopefully if time permits i'll try to get one today.
