Port Phillip bay has seen some exceptional squid fishing recently, with clear water providing all the action. The southern end of the bay has been the best, but middle reaches right through as far North as Brighton have also produced the goods. Days with light winds and minimal rain create good conditions for squid fishing, as the cleaner salty water doesn't get pushed out by freshwater run off.
Customer Danny went out for some squid down in the southern parts of the bay recently and found some crackers. Sorrento and Portsea were the hotspots for the quality models. Customer Jacob caught some smaller bait sized models recently out around Frankston before having a snapper fish. Natural coloured jigs in 2.5 and 3.0 sizes were the best performers.
Customer Nick fished out from Rye with his mates recently in search of some squid for both food and for snapper baits. After a long day of working hard, guys ended up doing well on squid up to 1kg. Natural coloured jigs in size 3.0 did the damage around this part of the bay.
If you're a keen squid angler, good chance you'll be aware of Shimano's Keimura UV jigs. The UV white jig has been one of the most popular jigs around Melbourne for a while now, and many anglers catch squid on it when everything else fails. Shimano has released a new series of the Keimura jigs, with a batch of new colours available in these already proven jigs. There is a new version of the popular 'UV white' along with a killer gold base yakka/whiting and rainbow base mackerel. These jigs are available in size 2.5, 3.0 and 3.5 and are in stock now.
