Fishing locations Taylors Lakes is a shallow man made lake located in the western suburbs. Located 23 kilometres north west of Melbourne in suburban Taylors lakes. It stretches behind the Taylors Lakes main reception center and passed the water gardens shopping center. It’s not much to look at and its water quality is quite poor noticeable by brownish  colour and off smell. However Taylors lakes does hold good numbers of carp and eels. I have seen Carp as big as 12 kilos caught from this system using simple baits that you can access from your pantry cupboard.

FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

carp, eels,

BEST BAITS AND LURES

You’ll be solely bait fishing here so bread, corn, scrub worms are good choices. Fishing with baits suspended on a float is also a good option in this location. You may even choose small pieces of meat on a handline for eels.

ROD SETUP

Its a strange location to fish so we recommend a general purpose fishing rod around 7 foot in length. 3-5 kilo class with a 4000 size reel spooled with 8-12 line is a good choice.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

dawn and dusk is always favourable for carp and eels, but you should be able to catch them during most parts off the day.
