PAUL’S FISHING
img
Earlier this week, Paul headed out on his new Viking Kayak and headed down Gippsland way fishing and testing his new toy with Frank Milito from East Gippsland Fishing Charters. Paul and Frank fished Lake Tyers on Wednesday and managed some good numbers of beautiful dusky flathead including this beauty which measured 86cm and was of course taken on a squidgy soft plastic! Paul released this beautiful croc back to the water to breed up and produce many more beautiful fish for years to come.

WESTERN PORT
STONEY POINT
img
Mason Shulze fished out from Stoney Point on Tuesday arvo and boated this beast of a snapper! Mason marked up many groups of fish, but searched for a singular larger fish on the sounder where he then anchored and waited. On the bottom of the low tide, Mason’s rod screamed off out the back of the boat before burning itself out and putting up a good dog fight under the boat. Mason reports that fresh calamari got the job done and the fish weighed in at 8.6kg.
​​
HASTINGS
img
Keith Diprose from Big Time Fishing Charters got amongst the snapper for his customers this week and kick started his season in style managing some cracker whiting and squid on his new outfits he picked up last week. The snapper have been taken on fresh yakka chunks and the whiting have been smashing fresh squid! Great work Skitzy!

​​
YARINGA
img

Shauna Rohan dropped into the shop this week before heading out on the Port. Shauna purchased a new rod which she then broke in with this lovely 4.3kg snapper taken in 19m out from Yaringa. Californian squid got the job done for Shauna. Great work!

TOP END
img
Shaun Furtiere from Think Big Fishing Charters had a couple of regular customers jump aboard and he put them straight onto the fish. The fresh South Westerly and rising barometer ticked the boxes for Shaun and he was able to sound up some solid arches and got his clients arms stretched onto some cracker reds. Well done Shaun.
img​​
Grant Beasley fished out of Warneet Wednesday morning and nailed his PB red of 8kg and 91cm. Grant reports that a fresh yakka chunk was the bait that did the damage on the last of the run out tide. Great work mate!
JOES ISLAND

Tanya Sandys landed her first ever snapper this week and it was a pigeon pair of 5.5kg! Tanya fished with Jason Munro and now she can’t wait to get back out and do it again!

img
Glen Wassink headed out with his good mate, Stu and younger brother, Aaron for their first snapper trip on Western Port. Glen produced the goods early and hooked Aaron into a descent red, but unfortunately was dropped! However, Aaron was this over the moon when he pulled up his first ever gummy! Glen’s mate Stu was shaking at the knees when he pulled up this 7.6kg red! It put up a great fight, but Stu kept his composure and brought it aboard. Fresh squid produced both fish for the day.

img

Staff member Nathan Peterson took out his scarily close friend, Dave Hahn onto the Port this week, but they found that the fishing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be! Dave thought he was hooked into a big one, but when he dragged it up to the side of the boat as Nathan got the net ready, they both realized it wasn’t their desired species! Squid was the untouched bait of choice.

Marty Smith couldn’t fool the snapper this week, but was able to manage a tasty feed gummys while fishing out of Corinella.

SHIMANO TIAGRA REELS
img
Do you own a Shimano Tiagra fishing reel manufactured pre 2015?

Shimano reports there have been a small number of isolated instances where the ratchet plate screws may work loose on some Tiagra fishing reels manufactured prior to 2015. We will have a Shimano technician in store in a few weeks time performing free precautionary inspections and repairs to ensure peace of mind to customers and Shimano that your reel is not affected or if it is, will be repaired.

You can identify the year of manufacture by the first letter of the 2 letters stamped on the reel foot. The letter “N” indicates 2015. If the first letter is earlier than a “N”, then could you please drop your reel (removed from the rod) into Tackle World Cranbourne and your reel will be inspected.

Please give the shop a call on 5996 6500 if you need any assistance identifying if your reel requires inspection.
