TUNA
EAST COAST
img

The bluefin are starting to turn up along the east coast! This cracker was caught by a long liner and weighed in at a whopping 154kg! The fish are still out wide according to the pros, but hopefully we will see a fluctuation of fish moving in closer.

MERIMBULA
img
The boys on "Reel Jem" fished this week straight out of Merimbula capturing 2 bluefin at 57kg & 94.5kg along with a 59kg Yellowfin. They were about 150km out when they had a double hookup of bluefin and yellowfin! This is the first report from a recreational fisho so far and we hope in the coming weeks there will be plenty more!
PORTLAND
img
Wayne Sharrock AKA Sharky has not only been braining the tuna, but throwing in some quality bottom bouncing as well. This week has seen some magnificent Tassie Trumpeter amongst the catch.
img
Matt Boulton from Fish On Charters reports plenty of bluefin still about down at Portland. Matt fished both days last weekend out wide and found good numbers both days.
img

The guys from Reel Time Fishing Charters had no trouble finding their customers bluefin this week, although the fish were flighty at times, they still managed to send their customers packing with a good feed.

img

Young Deen got stuck into his first bluefin tuna with his old man, Ayoub throughout the week. The pair fished with good mates Brett and Claudio over the week managing a great feed of bluefin. There are still abundances of school fish in the area, but bigger numbers of fish are out wider.

img

The Cassar boys from Reel Time Fishing Charters found some quality dolphin fish earlier last week while trolling for bluefin. We haven’t had a whole lot of reports regarding the dollies but we hope to see a few more kicking around. Great work boys.

WESTERN PORT
CORINELLA
img
Glenn Cank took his son, Nathan and good mate Craig out on the water Saturday morning. The group fished at Freemans Point in 8m of water where Nathan hooked into his first ever gummy measuring 80cm. Not too long after boating the gummy, another rod buckled over and Craig pulled up his PB snapper estimated around 7kg. Great days fishing boys!
TOP END
img

Good customer, Peter Vink was lucky enough to get out in search of a winter red throughout the week. Peter landed this chunky snapper which weighed in at 6.5kg. Nice cheeky pose Peter!

TYABB BANK
img

Young squid wrangler, Tyler Methers, landed this horse of a calamari while fishing with his old man Gaven. This squid is almost as long as Tyler himself and was sure to produce some lovely calamari rings! Tyler and Gaven would like to give Scotty from Tackle World Cranbourne a special mention for excellent advice on jigs. Big Jigs – Big Calamari! Great stuff fellas.

BALNARRING
img

Marc Ainsworth from Fisheries headed out on The Port last weekend and wasn’t disappointed with good numbers of quality King George whiting.

img
Earlier last week, Peter Vink headed down to the bottom end in search of a gummy. Peter sounded up some good ground in the Balnarring area where he came into contact with this lovely 11kg gummy.

PORT PHILLIP BAY
SANDRINGHAM
img

Anthony Torpy headed back to the Sandringham Breakwater throughout the week after much success last week. Anthony landed 24 quality garfish within 2 hours of fishing. All fish were landed using silverfish as bait. Great work mate!

MORNINGTON
img
Shaun Furtiere from Think Big Fishing Charters continues to slay the squid in Port Phillip and has been finding some good numbers of bigger calamari. Shaun has been using IKA squid jigs and anything with a red foil has been producing the goods.
MT MARTHA
img
Good customer Daniel Weeks took his good mate Mick Davey out for a plastics session this week near Mt Martha. Weeksy and Mick had a ball flicking Squidgie Flickbaits and Whipbaits around in about 8m of water. The pair managed about 30 pinkies between them including this cracker by Mick. Awesome fishing boys!
AROUND THE STATE
PORTLAND
img
Wayne Sharrock from Sharkmen Fishing Charters took some clients out over the reefs in search of the Tassie trumpeter this week with some great success. After landing their feed of bluefin, Sharky took his clients to the deep drop grounds where he got his customers onto a cracker gummy amongst the trumpeter. Sharky is offering a bit of bottom bouncing Charters at the moment…Jump on board for something different and delicious!
PURUMBETE
img

Scotty Gray has been getting stuck into the fat trout at Purumbete and Bullen Merri over the last couple of weeks. Trolling big Rapala lures in the spotted dog colour has been producing the majority of fish. Scott has mainly been using down riggers to get his lures down deep, but this time of the year, flat lining can still produce good numbers of fish.

APOLLO BAY
img

Aaron Dillion, Ryan Medley and Shane Monaghan headed down to Apollo Bay the other week where they were welcomed with a cracker mako! Early on in the day the boys drifted and bottom bashed where they picked up a nice gummy of 12kg. With two bigger baits hanging out the back, this lively mako screamed off with both baits in its mouth and put on an aerial display. Awesome stuff fellas.

ROWVILLE LAKE
img
Mark Oram took his brother down to Rowville Lakes and managed a nice little rainbow on powerbait. Fisheries have stocked a large number of local waterways lately including Casey Fields and they are a great place for the kids over the weekends and holidays.
GUNNAMATTA
img
Abundances of anglers have been getting stuck into the salmon over the last week with Gunnamatta being one of the hot spots. Bluebait has been the desired bait, but the guys spinning have been doing well on 25 to 40gram lures and anything with blue in it is working well.
PORT WELSHPOOL
img
No monsters here, but young Isabella caught her first ever fish while at Port Welshpool over the weekend. This little flathead was returned safely to the water and we hope it’s the first of many!
LAKES ENTRANCE
img
The boys from Far Out Fishing Charters in Lakes Entrance continued to bottom bash over the shallow reefs in search of pinkies. There is definitely no shortage of fish at the moment, nothing too big but they are all quality eating size.
LAKE TYERS
img

Frank Milito from East Gipplsand Charters had a few good days on the bream. Frank took his clients out on Lake Tyers where the big bream are schooling in numbers and not many fish are under 40cm! Vibing has been the best technique lately while the fish are hard on the bottom.

AROUND THE COUNTRY
MUDGEE
img
Brendan Large landed this whopping murray cod throughout the week measuring a staggering 115cm! Brendan was fishing the Mudgee area of NSW when he came up tight with this monster. Cracking fish Brendan, well done mate!
BERMAGUI
img

Scott Bradley from Bermi Bait and Tackle got amongst some bream action in the dirty water of Wallaga Lake. Scott fished with his friend Harley and the pair managed some good numbers of bream to 40cm.

NAROOMA
img

Shane and Steve aboard “Spectre” landed this cracker kingfish at Montague Island. The fishing was tough this week, but this 122cm model made up for it weighing in at 13kg. Squid was used as bait. Great work fellas.

PORT DOUGLAS
img

Brad and Tim are lucky enough to be fishing in the superb conditons of Port Douglas. The pair went tag team on this bulky 80lb gt aboard Fa Fun Fishing Charters, a PB for both fishos. Well done gentlemen!
