Westernport has been perfect for squid fishing over the last week especially with the calm and clear weather from the weekend. Water clarity has been pretty
good while the weather has been calmer, and this creates perfect visual hunting windows for the squid. While the weather stays calm and the water stays
clear the squid fishing will continue to provide excellent results.
Customer James has been catching some quality models to over 1kg out from Tyabb. James has been fishing a few different Yamashita jigs, with the tidal
flow dictating whether to use a standard or deep sinking jig. The deep sinking jigs have been claiming some big squid in deeper water out to 9m in
depth. As usual along the area green 'grass whiting' patterns and also red foil colours have been effective.
Customer Colin has also been fishing around the Tyabb bank in search of some calamari with a nice bag of solid squid coming aboard. Size 3.0 Clicks jigs
worked well with the black killer doing most of the damage. The red 'blood' line of this jigs stands out in sunlight while the 2 different cloth scale
colours really help to attract the squid from a distance away.
Steve has been fishing the top of the port also, with a few nice squid coming from around the Yaringa area and also towards Hastings. Steve has been alternating
between natural gold and green base jigs that imitate local baitfish species along with strong contrasting colours like UV whites and solid blacks.
Steve also managed a solid cuttlefish during the same trip, which took one of the jigs as it was slow dragged just off the bottom.
