Corio Bay
Corio bay showed no signs of slowing down this past week with anglers still achieving healthy bags of pinkie snapper and flathead. The spoil grounds just to the North of Limeburner’s boat ramp known as Stingray Bay produced pinkie snapper to 45cm and flathead averaging the same size. Casting soft plastics ahead of your drift was ideal.

Clifton Springs
In the outer harbor Wilson Spit again saw anglers chasing snapper cross paths with fish to 5kg. As has been the case for the past few weeks fresh squid has worked a treat.

Queenscliff
Queenscliff was home to some impressive sized whiting last week with anglers boating fish to 45cm and in great numbers too. The whiting were spread from the Harbour entrance through to the Point Lonsdale Bite and at times a few moves were required to locate numbers of fish. Try looking for sand patched surround by grass beds in 5 to 7 meters of water.

Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads
Offshore from Ocean Grove Barwon Heads anglers searching for Kingfish had to cover some kilometres to locate fish and them tempting to bite was no easy task. When found live baiting or trolling lures did produce fish to 75cm.

Surf Coast
Surf Coast rock platforms saw anglers tangle with Australian Salmon to 2.5kg. Casting metal lures and allowing them to sink before being to retrieve was helpful in enticing shut down fish.

Portland
The Victorian Western District turned on some of the best fishing the state has to offer, both on the salt and freshwater.
Anglers heading out of Portland did not have to travel far to encounter fish, with Salmon to 3.5kg and Southern Bluefin Tuna all busting up on the surface in as little as 8 meters of water. East of Portland Harbour was the most productive ground with those casting stick bait lures into surface commotion boating tuna to 30kg and Australian Salmon all mixed in together. Keeping your eyes peeled for birds working fish was key to success and casting back from the schooled fish as to not alert them to your presence.

Warrnambool
Kevin Mcloughlin ventured out from Warrnambool Saturday with the intentions of landing a shark or two. Kevin had an outstanding catch boating a Mako Shark of 161kg on 24kg tackle that took some serious angling skill to subdue.

Lake Bullen Merri
Traveling down to Lake Bullen Merri last Friday I started trolling down 30ft with the aid of down riggers around the section called Potter’s Point there I bumped into numerous Rainbow trout to 2kg that resembled the shape of a football. The most productive lures were pink 13.5 gram Tassie devils and Rapala Spotted Dog F7. While on the lake I witnessed other anglers boat Chinook salmon of over 2kg using similar tactics.

Wurdee Boluc
Closer to home Wurdee Boluc gave up reasonable numbers of large redfin for those prepared to put in numerous casts. Anglers casting over weed beds in shallow water of first light reported the best results. Trent Schiller put in a few hours last week where he managed a chunky redfin of 45cm. The odd rainbow also found its way into anglers bags snapping up lures intended for redfin.
