Walk the beach, shift to different rocks or move to the other side of the lake. 3 Fish the tides. Fish move with the tide so make sure you do too. 4 Use fresh bait, and try using burley. It attracts fish, holds them in the area and triggers a more aggressive feeding response. Burley can be home- made from yesterday’s bread and tinned cat food or tuna oil. 5 Patience is key.

The Probus Club of Ballarat South was one of the first groups to take advantage of the large fish population now established in Lake Wendouree, and Bait Wasters’ very own ‘Gilligan’, otherwise known as Kelvin, was the first to catch a fish in the newly filled lake. It means that fishing adventures are a lot closer to home, and much easier to come by, right in the heart of Ballarat. While John initially campaigned for the fishing group to be named Fish Feeders, he now claims that Bait Wasters is far more fitting. The theory is that if there’s no catch, the bait has been wasted and, according to the Skipper, this happens often. It has been said that fishing is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that. For the enthusiastic Bait Wasters, a day feeding fish is a relaxing adventure with humour, good company and some good grub to wrap up the day. •• ! Ballarat South's Bait Wasters meet at Lake Wendouree each month to feed the fish and hopefully catch a feed for themselves. Frame 11 Photography
