Peninsula Total Tackle Fishing Report 26/05/2012
May 27, 2012
It’s been tough going around the traps this week. If the previous few weeks had you in any doubt that were were rapidly moving into winter, this week would have been the icing on the cake.
Staff Gav Fallon has had some good success on the bream this week. He has taken fish at Patterson River, Balcombe Creek and even a couple at the Mt Martha Marina. The fish have been good quality – up to 40cm and have been taken on both bait and lures. Gav had success on Squidgy Wriggler 80mm in blood worm and avocado colour.

Salmon continue to be caught at Blairgowrie Marina and Rosebud Pier and Mornington Pier. Mornington has been seeing schools pop up periodically during the day…so could be a good option if you’re taking the kids during the day. This week in seems getting up early for the dawn bite is proving to be the way to go.

Staff Dan, Paul and Jules did a bit of squid fishing on Sunday evening… they found the going pretty slow while fishing in close at Sorrento and Blairgowrie. Giving the squid fishing the flick, they trolled a few hard body lures in the Shark Hole managing to catch some great bait size barracouta…. Perfect for the next gummy shark outing.
A few squid like this...
...and a whole lotta couta like this!
Mates Shuan Zealz and Chris Earle were doing a bit of ‘jig testing’ on Saturday afternoon at Blairgowrie landing a couple of mid size cala.

Best squid of the week goes to Chris Vavarigos, who picked up a thumping fish weighing 2.2kg at Sorrento. This bad boy took a Harimitsu Two Tone… a very popular jig with red foil under on the belly and gold foil on the back.
Jacque Kisnorbo had a day out this week fishing in 21m off Mt Martha. He managed a PB snapper at 6.1kg. They finished with 7 snapper - a ripping day in May.

Out of Town, Sorrento boys Tone and Baz went down to Warnambool over the weekend. Baz’s son Casey along for the ride, he was happy to land his first Bluefin in 43m about 2.5nm south of the harbour. The guys reported that the pilchard pattern jet head skirts were the winner.

Tim Fyffe and brother in law Micah also cashed in at Warnambool over the weekend taking a couple of nice fish in 30m.

With the fish in so close, Warnambool is a great destination for a spot of Tuna fishing. Problem at the moment is that the ramp there suffers from a serious surge, which pushes water up the ramp, which can make launching difficult and damaging (to your car). A new launching facility is being proposed and the Warnambool council is seeking feedback. The various interest parties are pushing for Option 1 which would include a fully enclosed harbour with 100 berths available and new three lane ramp with floating pontoons. This would be seriously good news for local residents and fishermen from Melbourne, so please get on board, visit the Warnambool City Council website and post some positive feedback.
Matt Cini from Reel Time (04 has found fishing off Portland to be a bit hot and cold this week. The guys still managed fish, mostly in close, fishing between 30 – 50m in front of the light house and in 50 - 70m south of the rock. Matty says sneaking up on surfacing fish can prove effective. Don’t be afraid to toss a few plastics at them on get the cubes running, it can be a sure way to entice spooky fish that are being hounded by boats. On the whole however, Matty says Pakula 5 inch skirts in blue and Xrap 20s in blue, green and purple also picking up plenty of fish.
The Reel Time boys bring plenty of fish home for their customers.
