Jacob has been staying down at Inverloch and fishing Andersons Inlet over last week, and reports plenty of school sized whiting taking pipi and squid from the entrance right up to Mahers Landing. Most of the fish are around 35cm, which is about average for this system. Silver Trevally and Salmon to 500g are taking the same baits further around the entrance and Pensioners Point. After dark, gummies up to 7kg are being caught on fresh baits as they scour for food throughout the inlet.
Port Welshpool has been fishing well in the Franklin Channel for snapper and Whiting with a few rat Kingies around the jetties. Customer Chris reports that some days they are slamming every lure to hit the water, and others only one or two types of lure will get a hit.
Customer Mitch fished around the Entrance Channel, taking Tailor up to 70cm, bream up to 45cm and loads of flathead up to 50cm. Most of the Bream where taken on hardbodies along the flats. Berkley ripple shads caused quite a commotion amongst the local Flathead, with the average size about 40cm.
Amongst other reports received from Lake Tyers, good customer Daniel landed flathead to 74cm and bream to 39cm, mainly soft plastic flickbaits, worked hard against the edges.
Kilcunda and Venus Bay appear to be the most consistent and successful surf beaches over the past week. Customer Ted landed 2 Salmon both around the 1.5kg mark on bluebait on an afternoon high tide.
Anton also fished around the Bass beaches last week, with 7 Salmon up to 2.5kg coming from Kilcunda. Bluebait and pipi has been the best bait for him, with high water around low light times again being more productive in the close gutters.
