Surf Beaches
Surf’s up, heading down to the surf proved once again an excellent choice with anglers not only finding worthy numbers but also quality of Australian Salmon. Casting lures out from the beach on the incoming tide resulted in Salmon to 2.5kg. The most productive locations included 13th, Bancoora & Jan Juc Beach. Lures best suited to conditions weighted between 25-30gram tied on a 12lb leader. Fishing Bait also got the job done with Salmon to 2.5kg devouring pilchards and blue bait. Tib & Rita Polgar recently landed some well conditioned salmon from Ocean Grove.

Clifton Springs
Back inside the bay and Clifton Springs tempted anglers with good numbers of squid in 3 to 5 meters of water. Little further out and whiting came to those fishing pippie as bait. At times a few moves were needed to locate good numbers of fish.

Corio Bay
Corio Bay remained popular due to protection from strong winds. Anglers fishing land based from both St Helens and Limeburner’s boat ramps landed reasonable numbers of garfish and pinkie snapper with the odd larger snapper coming to those dedicated anglers.

Swan Bay
Swan Bay provided a mixed bag for anglers fishing inside the channel with whiting, salmon and squid on the chew for anglers fishing at the right time.

Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads
Making the most of excellent conditions on Saturday Jason Andrew and his mates headed out to 40 meters of water straight out from RIP. Dropping squid baits to the bottom the guys boated 3 gummy shark to 12kg releasing one. When one of their rods buckled over and line peeled from the reel the guys got a nice surprise when a legal sized kingfish made its way into the boat.

Port Fairy
Calm conditions on Saturday proved too tempting for Peri Stavropoulos, Micheal Stavropoulos, Daniel Baden and Chris Pitman. Venturing down to Port Fairy we set out in search of Southern Bluefin Tuna. After covering some distance on the water we located tuna in 63 meters of water that were willing to take diving hard body lures. After taking a few tuna on the troll we were able to find a school of fish feeding on the surface that devoured lures such as Bass Day Bungy Cast and Sea Iron Pelacus cast into the commotion. Of note we had Kingfish follow tuna to the boat on one occasion along with some much larger model tuna.

A little further down the west Tony Hynds spent a few hours casting soft plastics in Lake Yambuk located near Port Fairy where he banked several bream to 33cm.

South West Vic
Tackleworld Geelong’s Michael Moore & Adam Van Der Lugt travelled down to one of the sea run trout systems down the South West on Monday. Fishing though gale force winds Michael banked a well-conditioned brown trout of 54cm on a Rapala spotted dog lure.

Lake Purrumbete and Bullen Merri continued to prove challenging for anglers with the trout being temperamental. Trolling deep with the aid of a down riggers was the undoing for a few Bullen Merri Rainbows and Chinook Salmon.

Next Week
Next week if the strong winds persist look to Queenscliff Boat Harbour for Silver Trevally and Squid or inside at Corio Bay for pinkie snapper. Gummy Shark are on the chew offshore from Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads in 40 meters of water. Freshwater anglers keep focused on Wurdee Boluc and Lake Bullen Merri as it’s sure to improve.
