Tyers and The Gippsland Lakes
offer a wide range of fishing
experiences. From the exhilaration of crossing the bar at the
Entrance and heading out to the open sea, through to relaxing in a
secluded spot in the upper reaches of the Toorloo Arm in Lake Tyers.
In between there is fishing ranging from a tinny to cruising in the
yacht. The majority are probably people who are either casuals, and
fish from the bank, or the small boat owners who energetically ply the
waters of the Lake. Don't forget Flathead now has lower limit 30cm and
upper limit 55cm with bag of 5 max staying the same. Click here for the current sign
for Flathead catches
Whatever your preference
you will be sure to find an access point and style to try your hand
at, whether going for the big one or just the elusive one, or the one
type you are yet to catch. Here is a quick photo montage of the
different styles used locally. Just remember though, before you rush
out and buy the $1000 surf rig, talk to the locals and tune in to what
is the best way to go. If you believe in local sayings try -
