Bream Lures

Postby ZestyLemon » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:25 pm

Hi all!
Have recently turned to bream fishing, and found a couple spots that work great with the grub plastics and vibes/blades. However, I want to have a go at using jerk bait style plastics (like the zman 3.75inch streakz). I know they work great for pinkies, flathead and salmon, but what about breaming?
Cheers

I think you are better off sticking to what works. Going to the lure you have suggested will reduce your catch rate of bream a hell of alot. But if you are up for a challenge then I am sure you can make it work.

Why not have a go mate and see how you go?
You can always go back to what works if it doesn’t :)

You can find more on the Zman 3.75 streakz on the Tackle Tactics site.. http://www.tackletactics.com.au/

here's a small part I copied ..

** The ZMan 3.75" StreakZ is a classic baitfish style soft plastic that imitates a small baitfish perfectly. When a flat is littered with gar, small whiting, hardy heads or whitebait, this is my go to lure. Unlike to the 2.5" GrubZ the StreakZ requires action to be imparted through the rod tip. By using a slow shake and wind technique, the plastic will hold its line through the water and its tail will zip from side to side creating a perfect offering for hungry bream.

Another technique that I like to use is a very popular technique associated with soft plastics fishing. Simply make a long cast, allow the lure to sink to the bottom and give it a couple of quick hops, making sure that the lure comes back into contact with the bottom on the pause. TT's #1/0 Tournament Series and HeadlockZ Finesse Series jigheads are perfectly matched to this plastic and when rigged at the correct weight they are a must in a bream angler's arsenal.

Another very important part of fishing the flats is choosing the right line for a particular style of flat. Too light and they can bust you off, too heavy and you won't get them to bite. Weed, yabby or nipper flats rarely have anything that bream will be able to bust you off on, so I tend to stick to the lighter leaders on these flats. However cockle and coral flats often have razor sharp structure on them and if your line comes into contact with them whilst under pressure, more often than not it will break. This will make it very hard to know what size leader to use, however water clarity will often influence your decision. When fishing dirty water conditions you have the luxury of upgrading to 6 or 8lb leader, giving you a bit of extra security once you have hooked a bream. In times of extremely clear conditions, the lighter the leader the better, with fluorocarbon a must.

Went out early this morning before sun up and work to give them a crack at gem pier. Caught a flatty, 32cm, which I kept for dinner. Then a school of juvi sambos came through, caught and released 12 of the little ones. At sunup I focused on the bream and to my suprise, none were landed on the slim swimz opening night. So i switched to the zman 3.75 and instantly caught a small guy at 15cm. Proceeded to catch one more bream, then packed up and left for work.

Those sambos might be small but a lot of fun.
Nice flattie and enjoy the feed :thumbsup:
