Total Tackle Fishing Report 12/12/2013
December 12, 2013
To start off this week, we had the annual Nautical Marine fishing comp that was held over the weekend, with one ripper day of fishing on the Saturday with the Sunday being an absolute write-off .
Although the Snapper were slow the Squid and Whiting were certainly on the chew, we saw a number of good size squid and whiting weighed in although the snapper were on the smaller side everyone that was involved had a great time.

This week we have had some mixed reports on the Snapper, it seems that the fish have been biting better up north again around Fawkner Beacon and as far down as Mordialloc, although it has definitely slowed on the Snapper over the last week the Whiting and Squid have been prolific. The bottom end of Port Phillip Bay has been fishing extremely well for Squid with Lonsdale Bite seeing some Jumbo sized Squid being caught from the cottage on the sea through to the dog beach, with plenty of spawn around on the bottom it has made for some cracking fishing.
Christina Dafilis with her Snapper of 2.8kg. the fish of taken from 16 meters off Mordialloc, she caught 3 in total. Good effort Christina.
Harmsy with the only fish caught between the boys he fished with, the guys were fishing the Corals in Western Port.
David caught this nice red with Gawaine Blake from Mathew Hunts Fishing Services (PH : 0419 760 510). The guys fish out from Carrum, David's fished weighed 5.5kg, and took a Silver Whiting which the guys reported to be the best bait.
Gaffman and Jk this week fished out of Rye in 5 meters taking this nice mixed bag. The guys used a pippie cocktail to get the job done.
Customer Mark Collling sent us this report of a good haul of whiting he caught up the middle spit in Western port on the low tide.
We have also seen numerous Squid being caught off the Local piers with Portsea and Sorrento being the stand outs.
