Port Phillip Bay:
Western Port:
Staff member Garry snapped this
big school of Salmon feeding off
Mornington during the week. If you
look closely, there is a patch of
fish just to the left of it which Garry
reports were bigger fish, possibly
Charlie Murphy caught this 44cm King George Whiting in
14m of water out from Tooradin. Finding the deeper water
can prove successful if you are looking for bigger fish.
Shaun Furtiere from Think Big Charters has been putting
his clients onto some beautiful King George Whiting in
Western Port this week. Berley has been the key and
Pipi, Mussel and Squid have been best baits.
Matt Cini from Reel Time Fishing
Charters and clients have been
enjoying some great squid fishing
off Mt Martha this week. Red foil
jigs have been working well under
overcast conditions.
Staff member Scott Harper and good customer Peter Vink
fished off Hastings in search of squid on Monday. The
boys managed a nice bag using IKA jigs in size 3.0.
Grant Lawson took his son, Bailey
and Uncle Peter out off Swan Bay
during the week. Grant reports that not a lot was happening, but
young Bailey was stoked with his first Gummy Shark.
Laura and Amelia headed out off Portarlington with their dad on
Monday in search of some King George Whiting. After a few moves,
they finally found a good school of fish and almost managed their
bag before they pulled anchor and targeted some Calamari. The
girls managed 6 squid and headed home very happy!
Around the State:
After dusting up the squid, Scott and Peter headed south
to Mcaffies Reef in search of some Whiting. The boys
weren’t disappointed landing 16 whiting to 40cm, and
found some busting schools of Salmon which fell victim to
the Arma Radico metal lures.
Danny fished out of the Western Entrance last Saturday
and at about 2pm landed this ripper Yellowtail Kingfish
that Danny reports to be approximately 12kg. Danny
reports that an X-Rap 30 did the job.
4 year old Tom Rio with his first King George Whiting
caught off Rhyll. Tom was using Pipi and we are sure that
this is the first of many to come!
Young William Brown with his PB garfish caught from the
Newhaven Boat ramp car park. Using plenty of berley
helps to keep the Gars around.
Michael Stead caught this 115cm monster Murray Cod
which weighed around 45kg.
Australian cricketers, Cameron White and James Pattinson
have been into the Bass Strait Kingfish once again this
week. The boys caught Kingfish to 96cm all on live baits.
The beaches have provided Australian Salmon to 2kg for
anglers casting metal lures up to 25g. Blue and green lures
have been producing the most fish.
