SOUTHERN BLUEFIN TUNA
PORTLAND
img
Simon Rinaldi from Red Hot Fishing Charters managed some nice school fish this week before heading home to feature in our bluefin tuna talk night. Simmo has been having some good success on the new Bonze lures. Great work Simmo.
img

Wayne Sharrock from Sharkmen Fishing Charters literally found bucket loads of tuna this week for his clients. The fish are still in big numbers in close which is allowing Sharky to find his customers their bag before heading off to do some deep drops where he has found good patches of tassie trumpeter.

img

Mitch Bertacchini from Online Fishing Charters got out during the glass calm conditions over the weekend. Mitch reports that he found good numbers of fish around Julia Percy Island, but they were feeding on small bait which made them a challenge to tempt. However, Mitch mixed up his techniques and found that small skirts pulled some quality fish.

img

Joe from Game On fishing charters brought back a beast to be weighed in on the weekend. The boys hooked into this cracker early on Sunday and after a couple of hours on the rod they boated this 89kg Bluefin. This goes to show that there is still some big fish in the area!

WESTERN PORT
TOP END
img
Richie Knight, Ross Goudie and Scotty Stelfox put in a few hours on the water Saturday night for a quality red. The boys dropped into the shop earlier that day and got themselves some Californian squid which was then turned into this 5kg snapper which was caught a couple of hours into the run out tide.
img
Brian McEwan took family friends Jack and James out over the weekend and was able to get them onto their first fish, and what a way to open the account! This lovely red weighed in at 8kg and measured 85cm. Love it, well done guys!
JOES ISLAND
img
Ken Billing and Stan Kolbe dropped into the shop on Thursday pretty keen to show off their catch! The pair had never previously thought to try their luck for snapper over the colder months, but with the amount of reports filtering through the system they gave it a crack. We weighed the boy’s fish in at 6.93kg and 4.9kg gutted. Ken and Stan report that both fish came on the run out tide using pilchards. Well played fellas.
HASTINGS
img
Some absolute beasts have been kicking around and this fish is a true 20 pounder! Glenn Browitt was out from Hastings Monday morning and right on the end of the run in tide this monster red picked up his fresh squid and took off like a steam train!
She weighed in at 9.3kg.
Well done Glenn
PHILLIP ISLAND
img
Kozzi and Huff fished from Cowes on Saturday and managed to get Huff onto his PB gummy of 9kg. The pair then headed out of the bay and fished in 50m of water where Kozzi managed this lovely 4.5 kg red an a coota head. The boys mixed it up and reaped the rewards. Well done.

PORT PHILLIP BAY
SANDRINGHAM
img

Anthony Torpy headed down to the Sandringham break wall this week in search of some tasty garfish and was not disappointed. Anthony reports that burley was key to get the fish active, but after doing so there was no shortage of them. Silverfish was the best bait. Great work Anthony.

FRANKSTON
img

Mason Shulze definitely had a ripper day on the water last week. Before hitting the snapper, Mason found some lovely squid destined for a red.

MT ELIZA
img
Mason Shulze fished the Mt Eliza area before the weekend with some success to say the least. In 20m of water he sounded up a few solid arches before dropping on them with fresh squid. This beast was taken on a whiting rod with 8lb mono! INSANE!
She ended up measuring 91cm and weighed 7.6kg.
Love your work.
BLAIRGOWRIE
img

Marcus has been getting stuck into the calamari from the Blairgowrie pier over the last week. This quality specimen had a hood that measured 30cm. Red and gold jigs in size 2.5 have been working well.

SORRENTO
img
Tdogg’s old man, Graham, hooked and landed this great grey sub just before the weekend. The boys were fishing the run in tide out from Sorrento when she engulfed a large salmon fillet and took off like a steam train. We don’t have a weight for this beast because the boys happily let her swim away. Love your work guys!
img

Shaun Furtiere from Think Big Fishing Charters continued to do some calamari charters throughout the week in some top notch conditions. Shaun has been catching a whole swag full of table sized fish of late and reports that brightly coloured jigs are doing the trick.

ST LEONARDS
img

Its snapper madness in both bays at the moment and check out this monster! Jerry was fishing the St Leonards area on Friday and half an hour before the bottom of the tide this 11kg red picked up his freshly caught squid tube and took off like a rocket. Amazing fish Jerry, well done!

AROUND THE STATE
TAYLORS LAKE
img
Stewart took his girlfriend Taylah out to Taylor Lake in search of her first fish. This carp wasn’t the intended species, but a special catch nevertheless. Stewart reports that Taylah is now hooked on fishing. Great work!
TOOLONDO
img
Phil, Kev and Steve had a great weekend at Toolondo. The boys only managed the one trout of 4lb fishing a mudeye under a float, but also got stuck into a few redfin while chucking a few hard bodies around.
img

Geoff Stock continued his good form at Toolondo this weekend. Fishing in glass calm conditions, Geoff managed this cracker brown along with some quality redfin. Great work Geoff.

PORT WELSHPOOL
img

Congratulations to great friends of the shop Robert Johnstone and Darren Hamilton Moore on their capture of this lovely mako shark from port Welshpool this week. This cracking mako was weighed in at 108kg bled. Great fish and even better taken in the middle of June.

NICHOLSON RIVER
img

Shakiya and Brody Gordon from Narre Warren ventured down to the Nicholson River over the weekend with their parents. The two young guns managed over 20 bream on their tackle rat rods. Prawn was the best bait.

LAKES ENTRANCE
img

Show us your pink ling! The boys from Far Out Fishing Charters at Lakes Entrance headed out offshore over the past week and after deep dropping in 500m the found some quality ling! Some top class eating right there!

LAKE TYERS
img
Frank Milito from East Gippsland Fishing charters has been dominating some quality bream throughout the week at Lake Tyers. Frank has found that the fish are schooling in big numbers in the depths of the lake. Vibing has been the method of choice.
MALLACOOTA
img
Stuart Hindson fished with Deano and Dan for a couple of days this week and managed big numbers of chunky bream. The group managed over 60 bream for the two days. Awesome fishing fellas!
AROUND THE COUNTRY
TASMANIA
img
PW’s good mate Jamie Harris has done it again! Jamie fished with skipper Jason out from St Helens and they boated this mammoth broadbill! The boys dropped a solid fish just prior to landing this one. Insane fishing in Tassie!
BERMAGUI
img

EXCITING TIMES!
Good Yellowfin Tuna have been taken from Bermagui over the weekend and check out this beast! Nic Launder was chasing swords inside the 1000fth line and cubing simultaneously when he sight fed this beauty 2m off of his transom. 2 hours later on 80lb gear, Nic and his father, Jim, hoisted this 90kg yellowfin into the boat.
Well done boys!

NAROOMA
img

The boys from Charter Fish Narooma pulled an all nighter throughout the week in search of a broadbill but instead came home with a quality yellowfin weighing 45kg. The boys report that they also pulled the hooks on two bigger fish.

img
Chris Hollins landed this massive 97.5cm flatty from the estuary at Narooma. Chris took a couple of happy snaps before returning her to the water. Well played Chris.
DALY RIVER NT

img
Staff member David Kramer is up in the Northern Territory at the moment, staying on a 65’ mother ship anchored in the mouth of the Daly River with Humbug Fishing Charters. David has been fishing both offshore and in the creeks that run along this remote coastline. David reports he had to leave meter long queenies biting the other day to go check the crab traps. Old mate, Harold Sinclair landed a nice 80cm Barra late one afternoon and David says there has been no shortage of mangrove Jack also. If you’re looking for a quick winter escape, Humbugs mothership is in the mouth of the Daly for another few weeks.
