Clifton Springs
At times angler crossed paths with Australian Salmon erupting on the surface in a feeding frenzy. Casting 3” gulp minnows casted into the commotion worked well. On the spoil grounds out from the sands caravan park anglers boated numerous pike and pinkies again soft plastics a fantastic tactic. Squid were still on offer over the grass beds in three to four meters of water with size three Yamashita jigs doing the trick.

St Leonards
Bourke St is still the best location on the Bellarine Peninsular by far for King George Whiting. Fishing of an evening with some decent tidal flow is ideal with pippe and tenderised squid top baits.

Swan Bay
The channel inside Swan Bay is in fire during a run in tide for a mixed bag with some thumping big silver trevally to 50cm along with pinkie snapper of the same size. Fishing a fresh strip of squid at night will work well on the gummy shark with plenty of gummies to 8kg hanging around.

The RIP is firing up for Kingfish with knife jigs working very well. Bell Reef and Queenscliff Pier have been very productive land based locations for squid here larger 3.5 size jigs work best.

Off Shore
Off shore from Ocean Grove / Barwon Heads Kingfish are without question the most highly sort after species. Casting large 7” soft plastics into a school of surfacing feeding fish is a fast paced tactic that has produced results. The most effective method has been trolling white ocky skirts with a fresh squid strip in 10 to 20 meters of water between Point Lonsdale and the mouth of the Barwon River. Working knife jigs over structure is also a great way to target Kingfish too.

Fez landed a ripper Kingfish offshore last week!

Trelly's Geelong's Chris and his mate Andrew also crossed path with plenty of kingfish. Using Gulp 7" Jerk Shads down deep did the trick.

Chris from Gone Fishing Charter guided his clients onto snapper and Kingfish offshore last week.

The guys at Ocean Grove Charters also made the most of the Kingfish action.

Barwon Estuary
Inside the river anglers fishing with live bass yabbies have encountered some big bream to over 40cm. Whiting and smaller model Australian Salmon have been common captures towards the front of the system.

Port Fairy / Portland
If its Southern Bluefin tuna your after then head to Port Fairy / Portland as the school tuna are in solid numbers. Trolling lures like a Samaki pacemaker 140D or a small 3” skirted lures will see you find fish to 30kg.
