There have been plenty of people out squid fishing during the week! The land based reports have been a bit on the quiet side, but with calm conditions and clear water the squid fishing has been excellent. Westernport bay has been the go for many anglers, with plenty of quality Autumn squid coming in.
Customer Lee took his young son out in Westernport where they fished along Tyabb bank. Lee's son had just purchased a new graphite rod with his birthday
money and used it to good effect with a nice bag coming in. Size 3.0 and 3.5 Yamashita jigs in both UV whites and red foils were the standouts on the
Fishing in the same area customer Peter caught some ripper squid with some proper giants coming in at around 2kg. Pete has been a fan of the 'nemo' or
broken colour patterns on the squid, with 15lb braid helping to drag these larger models out of the current easier.
Customer Alex has not long returned from a trip up north and is straight back into things with some excellent squid coming in to the boat. Alex was fishing
with his father up the top end of the port to land 13 squid all up.
Customer Brendan also fished the port with a mate chasing squid, launching at Stony Point. The guys worked their way along the banks, changing their depth
and drifts from 2m through to 9m of water to find a bag. The last hour of the run in tide fished best and a fair variety of jigs were used in order
to find some success, with the most consistent being natural red foil/grass whiting and glow white.
Some of the boys' squid were up to 37cm long hood length, with a couple more lost at the boat along with a big cuttlefish estimated at around 2kg.
