The top water bite has been on fire with many anglers catching fish casting. Large schools of tuna have been easy to find and are ideal to throw stickabits into. Tackle Shack staff member Dylan Pace fished Portland on the weekend with Aaron Dillion. The boys had a ball casting stickbaits and landing fish up to 30kg, with the Maria Loaded’s producing most of the action.

Matt McVilly fished off Warrnambool chasing a Mako. After a 50 minute fight he had a solid one in the boat that dragged the scales down to 100kg.

Daniel, Mario and Noel made the run down to Gippsland where they had a fantastic trip boating plenty of Kings up to 10kg. the boys noted a range of methods did the job with the better quality fish falling to fresh squid.
