Queenscliff
Queenscliff was home to some impressive captures last week with whiting, squid & kingfish taken. Anglers seeking whiting found success on the area know as the grass beds just to the east of the Queenscliff Harbour here on the run in tide whiting to 45cm were boated on pippie and squid as bait. Just around the corner the entrance to Swan Bay held squid of around 800grams with size 3 jigs accounting for most fish. Chris from Gone Fishing Charters had an outstanding session on the Kingfish in the RIP guiding clients on to numerous kingfish reaching 8kg in weight. Chris found Entice jigs to work extremely well.

Clifton Springs
Clifton Springs has the odd snapper to 4kg for those putting in the time and fishing with freshly sourced bait such as squid. Making the most of your depth sounder to locate schools of snapper is crucial to success.

Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads
Offshore from Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads schools of Australian Salmon are still erupting on the surface in a feeding frenzy with salmon to 2.5kg devouring lures cast into the commotion.

Western District
Heading down the Western District and the fishing is going from strength to strength. Kingfish and Tuna were commonly caught in one outing by anglers casting stick baits into surface commotion. Last week Mitch Chapman spent some time fishing out from Portland where he caught both Kingfish and Tuna casting Maria Stick baits to surface feeding fish.

Lake Bullen Merri
Some of the most impressive reports this week has come from the freshwater. Lake Bullen Merri saw Chinook salmon to 4kg and respectable Rainbow Trout of around 1.5kg taken. Trolling down deep with the aid of a down rigger is a great way to target these fish. Another productive tactic is to anchoring up and berley with a liberal trail then drift pilchard fillets slowly to the bottom. As the weather starts to cool the action should only fire up at Lake Bullen Merri.

Horsham
Out of town Justin Burns fished waters around Horsham recently where he banked numerous Yellow Belly on Jackal TN60 lures. In amongst some heavy structure the yellow belly gave a tough fight.

Wurdee Boluc
Closer to home Wurdee Boluc was productive for Michael Evans finding both Redfin and Rainbow Trout. Casting lures from the lake margins worked a treat on redfin to 47cm and chunky rainbow trout. Michael has noted that larger plastic like Nories spon tail 4.5” shad really entices larger redfin.

Barwon River
Just on our doorstep the Barwon River around Queenspark is still giving up carp to 4kg for anglers prepared to be patient and fish with corn kernels. The odd redfin of 30cm was also taken by anglers casting small hard body lures around the bridge.

Next Week
Next week anglers looking for options are spoilt for choice with the Western District producing fantastic tuna and trout. Closer to home Corio Bay is a sure bet with soft plastics for pinkies and flathead over the spoil grounds. Freshwater anglers should look to Wurdee Boluc for large redfin and don’t be afraid to cast a big soft plastic around.
