The bay has gotten a fair bit quieter over the last month with many anglers turning their attention towards whiting and gummies over in the other bay,
but there still have been some nice snapper caught by anglers putting in the hard yards. Traditionally the main run of fish quieten off around Christmas,
as water temperatures push up towards their optimal spawning temp range. As almost a direct opposite of what happens early season, the top end of the
bay slows off, and the fish that are still actively feeding can be found further south around Mornington and Mt Martha. Customer Mick got a ripper
fish just recently fishing down south.
For the guys out there still wanting to tangle with a few - the ideal locations to be looking at the moment are from Mt Eliza through to the Mt Martha
spoil ground, and deep. Most of the fish being caught are in 18 - 22m, as this screenshot from earlier this week shows. The area was deep off Mornington,
with good congregations of fish still keen to take baits like silver whiting and squid.
