Plenty going on this week with the fine winter weather. Don Swayne caught this 69cm brown trout at Lake Purrumbete which weighed in at 4.3kg. The capture was even more special because he didn’t have a net and still managed to land the fish! This fish is one of several large brown trout caught over the last weekend.

The tuna have been hot and cold this week with barrels still be caught at Apollo Bay and plenty of school fish off Portland and Port Fairy mainly in the 70-100m of water. A dolphin fish was also caught yesterday at Portland so expect to see more of these over the next few weeks and the warm current pushes down from SA.
