Corio Bay
Corio Bay is playing host to some fantastic pinkie snapper fishing of present. Anglers casting soft plastics hard against structure have encountered snapper to 50cm. When not able to entice a bite from structure those making use of their sounder to locate schools of fish and placing a soft plastic in their path produced the goods. At times the odd flathead was also boated with fish in the mid 40cm range common.

Clifton Springs
Just around the corner Clifton Springs has seen increased catches of snapper. Tim King along with Ian Brew last week got stuck into some well-conditioned snapper between 2.5-4kg that devoured there squid as bait. The pair have noted the snapper have really come on the bite over the past few weeks. Over at the spoil grounds soft plastic anglers bumped into pike of 80cm in length that snapped up most soft plastic.
Indented Heads / St Leonards
Squid continue to be taken from Indented Heads through St Leonards with anglers working 3-4 meters of water achieving the best results. Whiting are also gathering over similar ground and responded well to pippie and tenderised squid as bait.

The RIP has drawn a lot of attention from anglers seeking kingfish and with good reason too. Over the past week although not in great numbers kingfish averaging 6kg have been boated by anglers jigging. Australian Salmon at times have appeared on the surface in a feeding frenzy and made for excellent sport on light tackle while waiting for a kingfish.

Barwon Estuary
Inside the Barwon Estuary mulloway, bream & trevally kept anglers busy. Anglers fishing further up in the system took Mulloway to 80cm and those fishing live bass yabbies banked the odd bream to 40cm. Silver Trevally were spread throughout the whole system and took a liking to both bait and lure.

Spinning the rock platforms surrounding Lorne gave anglers the chance to tangle with some better quality Australian Salmon. Casting metal lures such as the Sea Iron Pelacus saw salmon to 2kg beached.

The Western District in still keeping anglers entertained with kingfish and tuna. Trolling white skirted lures tipped with squid worked well along with casting stick bait lures into surface commotion.

Wurdee Boluc
Justin Burns & Simon Williams spent Saturday afternoon casting Fish Arrow soft plastics from the main rockwall at Wurdee Boluc where the guys banked numerous chunky redfin averaging 40cm.
Barwon River
The Barwon River has started to see redfin come back on the chew. Queenspark produced fish to 800grams with anglers casting small deep diving hard body lures seeing the best results.

Lake Mulwala
Heading further north Andrew Orchard recently spent a few days fishing Lake Mulwala where he caught a 68cm 5.3kg cod trolling a spinner bait at first light. Andrew did mention thatpurple or black lures with red or pink underneath did the trick.

Next Week
Next week at this stage the weather for the weekend is looking promising which should allow anglers heading down the Western District a chance to tangle with kingfish and tuna. Closer to home snapper off Clifton Springs are worth a look, with greater numbers starting to school up again. Freshwater anglers should remain focused on the lake of 1000 cast (Wurdee Boluc) with excellent redfin snapping up soft plastics.
