Long weekend saw anglers head far and wide in search of some piscatorial action.
Arriving at Corio Bay Sunday morning Tony Hynds ventured out onto the bay. Making use of his depth sounder to locate fish, Tony marked some promising signs. Casting 3” soft plastic’s allowed to sink to bottom it wasn’t long before Tony was connected to a solid snapper measuring in at 52cm. Tony then went onto catch a few more snapper around the same size along with some reasonable sized bream, flathead from around the wharfs.

Indented Heads
Moving around to Indented Heads and angler’s encountered excellent numbers of squid holding over the reef patches in 3-5 meters of water. Those casting slightly larger jigs bagged the better sized squid. Whiting proved a little more challenging but those making the move to deeper waters did boat bag limit captures.

Queenscliff saw plenty of attention from anglers over the Queen’s birthday weekend all seeking whiting. Tackleworld Geelong’s Michael Moore spent an afternoon on the whiting. Michael found the whiting hard to pin down at first but after some time Michael boated excellent conditioned whiting with the biggest an impressive 46cm in length. Anglers fishing Queenscliff noted that moving to the deeper faster flowing water did the trick.

Surf Coast
The surf beaches produced plenty of Australian Salmon for those making lengthy casts with metal lures. The start of the incoming tide saw salmon to 2.5kg beached. Further down the coast the rock platforms did provide anglers with salmon but the large swells made things difficult at times.

Curdies River
Making an early start Monday morning Tackleworld Geelong's Chris Pitman headed down to the Curdies River near Peterborough. Finding the water level high in the estuary system Chris traveled across the lake and into the start of the river where the bream were densely schooled. Casting vibe style lures resulted in numerous black bream to 38cm in length.

Further down the Western District Adam Van Der Lugt spent a few days over the long weekend fishing the Glenelg River at Nelson. Fishing from a kayak Adam caught numerous mulloway to 65cm along with chunky estuary perch that had a liking for hard body lures. Justin Burns also recently spent some time fishing the Glenelg River where he too took fantastic conditioned estuary perch again on artificial lures.

Port Fairy
Tuna anglers when able to pick a break in the weather again boated great numbers of fish averaging 10-15kg in weight. Those heading out to 70 meters of water took the greatest number of fish when trolling small skirted lures or Rapala X-Rap 20’s.
Freshwater anglers found the going tough with Wurdee Boluc proving to live up to its name Lake of 1000 cast’s. Anglers lucky enough to hook into a fish banked redfin of around 40cm.

Lake Purrumbete
Lake Purrumbete gave up trophy brown trout for anglers casting lures around the weed banks at first light. Those trolling hard body lures also took fish with Daiwa double clutches a standout.

Next Week
Next week anglers prepared to brave the cold should look at Queenscliff for whiting and squid. With the winds forecasted to back off at this stage, those looking to tangle with a tuna should be in for some luck in the 70 meter mark off Port Fairy. Freshwater fisho’s keep focused on Wurdee Boluc or make an early start at Lake Purrumbete.
