The squid fishing has been excellent over the past week or so, with some proper quality Spring squid coming in. Both bays have been producing lots of squid,
with most but not all of the largest squid being caught from the boat. Customers Michael and Chris have both been catching quality squid from the lower
end of Westernport throughout the week. 'Red whiting' Hayabusa jigs in size 3.5 have been the dominant jig for Chris this week.
Customer Callum also got a nice feed of squid from a session during the week. Callum launched at Hastings and fished the banks pushing up towards Tyabb
where he managed 7 nice squid. Callum found the 4m area the best around the top of the tide, with a handful of different jigs all working well.
Southern Port Phillip has also been excellent for squid this week. From Mornington south the squid fishing has been very consistent. Customer Danny fished
from the rocks around Mt Martha during nice conditions and landed a nice 40cm hood length squid. Danny was fishing a solid pink Yamashita jig in size
3.0, as pink is his favourite colour.
Down around Rye and Rosebud the squid haven't been as big, but big in numbers. Customer Thao and mate both got their bag fishing water from 4 - 8m around
both Rye and Rosebud. Drifting over the reef patches from different angles was the key to filtering through the productive areas, and constant jig
cloth colour changes also worked well. UV whites and rainbow oranges can work well in this part of the bay.
