Squid reports for landbased anglers have been fairly good recently. The Mornington Peninsula has been producing squid from most of the usual spots with the pier itself at Mornington producing smaller size squid. Size 1.8 - 2.5 jigs are the only way to go here as the squid are small and so are the baitfish that they eat. Staff member George stopped by the pier during the week for some fresh whiting baits and he quickly caught 6 before he had lines being cast over his head. George found a size 2.0 mackerel pattern worked for him.
Over in Westernport the squid have been going well from Flinders pier. The pier has been producing good average size squid, with plenty around 1.5kg. Most
of the squid reports from the pier have been from during the day, with the odd one being caught at night. Size 3.5 slow sinking jigs are always preferred
when fishing over the heavy kelp beds here.
Customer Tony has been catching plenty from the pier using one of his favourite Yakamito size 3.5 jigs, in the Aussie Green & Gold colour. Tony has
been finding that early morning sessions have been the most productive time for him here.
