Casey Fields Lake in Cranbourne is well known for its trout fishing. Located within the Casey Fields Sporting Grounds on Berwick Cranbourne Road, the main lake has been stocked by the Victorian Fisheries Authority with 500 rainbow trout in readiness for the school holidays.
1. Use trout pellets for berley. These fish were born and bred at Snobs Creek Fish hatchery and will switch on to the sound of pellets being thrown into the water.
2. Powerbait is the best bait. It is the closest you will find to the food they are fed at the hatchery.
3. Use a baitholder hook. The barbs on the hook help keep the bait nicely presented on your hook.
4. Fish close to the reeds. This is where the main food source is and hence where the trout will be foraging for food.
5. Fish with the wind behind you. You will be using very light gear so casting into the wind makes it very difficult to get your bait out any distance.
6. Use the lightest sinker possible. Just enough weight to help you cast the distance.
7. Check your bait every 5 minutes. Trout like activity, so re-casting will often result in a hook-up as the bait settles.
8. If you haven’t caught a fish within 30 minutes, move 20m and try again.
9. If you see fish splashing on the surface, try using a float and have your bait suspended 50cm under the surface.
10. When you catch a trout, move well away from the water's edge before taking the hook out. They are slippery suckers and many a fish has slipped from an anglers hands, back into the water and swam away.
Very easy and tasty recipe with ingredients most will have on hand, for fresh rainbow trout (farmed or wild). It takes very little time and is much lighter than ocean fish. The key is to remember to add the water to the dish as instructed in directions, which keeps fish from drying out. Serve with rice and veggies. Light and delicious. Be careful of bones! Make sure to add hot water to the dish; cold water can crack the baking dish.
