Well done to regular customers, Darren Hamilton-Moore and David Borninkhof who are this week’s “catch of the week” after landing this massive bronze whaler out of Corinella. The boys took a couple of happy snaps and then swum and revived her as they watched it swim off in the distance.

PW spent his birthday in style aboard Renegade Fishing Charters in Airlie Beach with Luke and Allira, along with Cristy, Jet and the extended Ifish family. From all reports the fishing was full on with giant trevally, mackerel and marlin all on the catch list! Paul would like to thank the crew from Renegade Fishing Charters for putting them onto the fish and for their fantastic hospitality! Time to head back to rainy Melbourne, although the fish don’t mind getting wet!

TOP END

img

What is it with this insane mulloway bite over the past couple of weeks?! The boys from "Fisha Mulisha" boated this silver ghost while fishing for snapper during the Tea Tree comp which weighed a whopping 32.4kgs! They might not have taken home a prize, but landing the elusive jew is something special in itself!

img
Andrew Shortis had a day out on the water which he will never forget! Andrew was fishing the Tea Tree on Friday morning in 9m of water when he hooked into this 19kg mulloway! Andrew reports that Friday was the best day of his life to date!

Great work fellas!

CARRUM
img
There has been plenty of snapper to go round, big and small aboard Matt Cini’s Reel Time Fishing Charters. Matt fished throughout the week, despite conditions and has had a fairly good success rate, although finding the big fish has proved challenging with the amount of small fish around.

There have been no shortages of snapper aboard Sharkmen Fishing Charters this week and Wayne Sharrock sent his customers home with a big smile and tasty snapper fillets. .

img
Matt Boulton from Fish On Charters put some happy customers onto the fish this week out off Carrum and Chelsea. Lorenzo landed a pair of beauties and 10 year old, Arthur was stoked with his 5.2kg fish. Matt reports that squid and pilchard have been the stand out in the bait department.

SEAFORD
img
Jayson Turner from Pro Red Fishing Charters managed good numbers of big reds to 6.5kg for his customers over the past week. Jayson reports that he has been moving constantly to escape from the plagues of piranha pinkies! Silver whiting, squid and pillys have been working the best for Jayson.
FRANKSTON
img
David Glennie stumbled across an odd occurrence when he landed this 6kg snapper on cup day. David was fishing a 2 hook snelled rig and when he pulled up his red, there was a small flathead hooked on the bottom hook which had its head crushed in! Live baiting flathead doesn’t sound like a bad idea!
​​
BALCOMBE CREEK
img

Staff member Jesse took his younger brother, Harry down to Balcombe Creek earlier in the week in search of some quality bream and did not disappoint. Harry out-fished Jesse and managed multiple fish to about 30cm. All were taken on un-weighted scrub worms. Great work boys!

DELATITE RIVER
img
Staff member David Kramer has been testing some of the new Japanese Jackson brand of lures up on the Delatite River near Mansfield. David reports the Kanade and Athlete models work sensationally on the trout. The swimming action of these lures is nothing short of perfect in both the shallow runs and deep pools of the Delatite. The results speak for themselves with some quality Brown Trout falling victim!
WOORI YALLOCK CREEK
img

Casey George fished the skinny Woori Yallock Creek and landed this beautiful 1kg rainbow using a small nymph style soft plastic. Great fish Casey!
