The squid fishing in Westernport Bay has been good recently, whether it's boat or shore based. While there haven't been any real leviathan sized squid around, numbers have been pretty good. Some of the piers that have been good have been Flinders, Stony Point and Hastings. Staff member Kozi fished from Flinders pier during the week to land a few smaller squid. Size 3.0 jigs were effective in landing a few of the smaller squid, with dark red foils and blacks most productive.
Customer Tony fished from the pier also and did well using his favoured jigs. Using his Gancraft 3.5 he was the only person to catch on this particular day, with squid to around a kilo.
Customers Jarrad and Michael went out and fished for the squid in Westernport prior to a snapper session recently. Using a mixture or baited and worked jigs, squid to 40cm hood length were caught - with the largest taking a baited jig. The better areas were nearby to Stony Point along the edges where the grassbeds drop off.
