I took my kids fishing for 45 minutes at Canning Reserve. This is a great location on the Maribyrnong River for fishing and playgrounds for the kids. We caught 6 bream in that short session. Several bream around 36cm in length. We were fishing with scrub worms on a small basic running sinker rig. The water clarity was very brown and discoloured but it didn’t stop the bream from biting and keeping the kids interested.

You can see the video report of us fishing that day. This video is also a step by step guide on how to rig up and how to catch bream. Ideal for any beginners or anyone looking to take their kids fishing.
