Around the bay there has been some ok action for light tackle fisherman. The bream fishing has been reasonable in most of the rivers, with Werribee and Patto producing a few nice fish. Staff member Dylan fished a few of the rivers landbased recently throwing lures around to try and connect with a few bream, and while the fish weren't huge they were still good fun on small hardbodies. Small freshwater yabbies and scrubworms have also been good on the local bream also. Young gun Kozi fished Patto recently with bait to land a stack of bream to around mid 30cm size also.
Down on Mornington pier there has been a few options to keep most anglers happy. The squid have been on and off, but persistence after dark with small jigs up to size 2.0 will see you land a few. Colours to try have been UV pink/orange and also natural gold and silver foils. Kozi fished off the pier recently to land squid on natural gold and brown jigs in size 2.5 and 2.0.
Inside the harbour there have also been schools of yakkas, couta and mullet to be caught as well. Baitfishing with small sliding floats and a fine grit berley trail has been the most productive method, however the yakkas and couta can be caught casting small soft plastics and lures. Small single tail grubs like Zman and Squidgy have been effective when fished lightly weighted.
