The squid reports have slowed up a bit since some of the inclement weather forced anglers off the water, but with good weather this week we should again see some decent fishing. The most consistent areas have been the bottom end of Port Phillip and around Flinders has been good also.
Some of the squid that we have seen coming from Flinders have been nearly 2kg, with an average one about 900g at the moment. The cooler water normally
brings in some of the big spawning models so don't be surprised if you hook some monsters here at the moment.
The southern part of Port Phillip around Blairgowrie and Sorrento have been producing of late also, with Sorrento being the pick of the piers. Fishing
smaller jigs like size 2.3 and 3.0's around the slack water period has been a good way to put together a bag of small squid also. Customer Tony got
his bag recently on size 3.0 jigs, with Yamashita '490 glow' colours being the standouts. He did mention that a lot of people were struggling to catch,
either using far to heavy main line or not picking the correct sink rate jig for the conditions. This is where it pays to have a range of different
styles of jig, not just different colours.
