Corio Bay
Corio Bay allowed anglers a sheltered option from the weather with pinkie snapper devouring soft plastics. The spoil grounds to the west of Limeburner’s boat saw schools of pinkie snapper averaging 35-40cm gather in large numbers. Anglers making use of their depth sounder to mark fish then present soft plastics to schooled up pinkies boated numerous fish.

Clifton Springs
Around the corner at Clifton Springs the point Richards channel was a chosen haunt for many snapper anglers. The section of the channel known as the Turn produced snapper to 4kg for those fishing of a tide change. Squid still remained a consistent capture for those drifting in close in 3-4 meters of water, they also make for a handy bait supply for the snapper too.

The Queenscliff boat harbour this time of year sees an influx of pinkie snapper along with a few larger specimens. Fishing the main cause way with soft plastics on the end of the run in tide saw anglers bank pinkie snapper to 45cm with the odd silver trevally making its way into angler’s bags. Anglers fishing from a boat inside the harbour and making use of a liberal berley trail often encountered better numbers of both trevally and pinkies.

Barwon Estuary
Over at the Barwon Estuary particularly the entrance anglers have had little difficulty in landing whiting, Australian salmon and mullet. Again a lightly weighted piece of prawn got the job done with some impressive sized mullet showing up. With the recent flush the whole Barwon River has received anglers, have their fingers crossed the mulloway & bream fishing will really fire up.

Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads
Offshore from Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads those drifting in 40 meters of water boated gummy shark and snapper with large baits such as squid and salmon fillet the most effective.

Surf Beaches
Surf anglers walking the beaches such as Bancoora on an incoming tide and making lengthy cast with 25gram metal lures took Australian Salmon to over 2kg. Whitey took a trip down to Bancoora recently and had no trouble in beaching salmon to 2kg+. The rock platforms around Lorne also fished well when the wind and swell allowed safe access.

Newlyn Res
On the freshwater front Michael Evans took a trip up to Newlyn Res where casting Norries Metal Wasaby lures Michael came up tight with a 62cm Brown Trout. Michael did note that the water resembled the color of chocolate.

Wurdee Boluc
Bradley Cox was at it again this time at Wurdee Boluc. Making long casts over the deeper weed beds Brad hooded into a couple of well-conditioned redfin using Pontoon 21 Paco’s. The odd rainbow trout has also been encountered with some rainbows almost 1kg in weight.

Lake Purrumbete
Lake Purrumbete is showing no signs of slowing down with trophy brown trout coming to dedicated anglers working the east bank. The odd large Chinook salmon has been taken by anglers targeting brown trout.

Next Week
Next week with some warmer weather forecast at this stage keep Wurdee Boluc in mind as the redfin fishing should really improve. Lake Purrumbete is still a hard option to go past with trophy brown trout on offer. Salt water anglers have look around the Point Richards channel as the snapper are moving in. Just remember to not anchor in the channel and keep well clear of the large ships. The lower reaches of the Barwon Estuary are a perfect choice if you’re looking to bank a fish or two.
