In "Bemm River Black Bream" Paul heads out 400km east of Melbourne to the Bemm River township which is situated on a natural coastal inlet stretching to the sandhills of the Tasman Sea. He has been coming here since he was 13 years old and it provides some of his earliest fishing memories. In this episode he joins up with local expert Frank Milito and as the two launch the boat into the lagoon, the sounder shows there are plenty of Bream to be had. The Bream have conventionally been caught on a prawn or worm but here the guys are using lures, which they cast out as they drift across the water, and they are soon into the fish. A good Black Bream will be over 1kg and 40 cms in length and if you're lucky you would hope to catch 2 or 3 this size on any trip.
