Kingfish captures have continued along the South West Coast. Anglers jigging, casting and fishing live baits such as Squid and Yakka’s have had the most success.
The Tuna have shown up in a big way with solid numbers of fish holding on the inshore grounds out to the 50m line. Anglers trolling smaller skirts such as Pakula Micro Uzi’s have been encountering fish up to 25kg, while those casting stick baits have also had good success on lures such as the Maria Loaded. Dan from Salty Dog Charters in Port Fairy has been finding some great fish for his clients over the past week with some great tuna popping up.
The bottom has become alive out wider with some notable captures of large Flathead, Snapper and sharks getting around. Peter managed this School Shark over the weekend.
