Tips on Bream fishing
Bream Are For Everyone!

Bream are the Democrats of the fish world. They will bite most any bait from earthworms to topwater bass baits. They can be caught anywhere there is a little water and they aren't too picky about conditions.

They are great cooked in a lot of ways, and they are often the first fish young anglers catch. They don't care if you are in a boat or fishing from the bank, wearing a jumpsuit with sponsor patches or just patched jeans, using a cheap 'blue light special" rod and reel or the top of the line stuff costing big bucks. They never met a fisherman they would not bite for!

Go bream fishing. Take a kid along. Watch a cork disappear! You will enjoy it, give the child memories that will last a lifetime, and generally make the world a better place
