Rhooky and Youngy headed out for a bottom fish off Port Fairy today, on their way they caught a couple of tuna in 48m, and the highlight off the bottom was this school shark which was close to 27kg, losing another one boat side and getting bitten off a couple of times as well.
Yesterday Port MacDonnell Fishing Charters caught 30 tuna by 10:30 and then bottom bounced for 3 school shark, 3 gummy shark and also busted a couple off. Tuna were also caught in close at Portland and Port Fairy.
The Hopkins River is producing some nice bream for anglers at the moment, and whilst driving over the Hopkins Bridge near the mouth on Saturday Arvo I saw an angler with a mulloway that would’ve been close to legal size, if not over. The lower reaches of local streams have seen some nice trout being caught as well, as shown here by Scott Gray.
