The squid fishing has been good around the bays over the past week or so. Both bays have been producing squid for anglers fishing from the shore, with Stony Point and Flinders proving to be productive. Stony Point has produced multiple squid during a session, with average size around 20cm hood length. Size 3.0 jigs fished from the shallows facing back towards the shore back to the pier have collected squid, with bright pink/orange and green working the best.
Flinders pier has also been good for some nice squid, larger than Stony but in smaller numbers. Sunset and Sunrise and also late evening have been the best times to target the squid, especially when the water around the pier is clean. Customer Angelo has been catching some quality squid from the pier on artificial jigs. Angelo has been using some size 3.5 Yamashita jigs with blue and white lumo part of the colour rotation.
Across on the Mornington peninsula squid have been the go over the past week. Customer Shane has been doing well around Mornington and Mt Martha with size 2.5 jigs working the best. Mornington pier has still been producing good numbers of squid on small jigs, with size 1.8 the standout. Around the rock ledges nearby the 2.5 and 3.0 sized jigs are working better, with longer casts proving more effective.
Customer Tony has been fishing down along the peninsula also and he has been finding some quality squid fishing on offer. Tony has fished Blairgowrie, Rye and Mornington piers and has found squid every trip. Tony has found Yamashita and Clicks jigs in size 2.5 and 3.0 effective with orange, brown, green and red foil all working well. Cycling through the different colours to see what the squid wanted was the only way to make the most of the activity.
