School Tuna are still around in numbers when the weather has allowed boats to head out wide. Portland and Port Fairy have seen good numbers of fish either side of 10kg holding in around the 70m line.

The freshwater fishing has been exceptional of late. The Merri has seen plenty of Browns up to 6lb and the odd monster redfin. Standout lures at the moment have been Rapala F7’s and Daiwa Double Clutch 75’s. Lake Bolac is still fishing well for Rainbow Trout up to 2kg. Trolling shallow running hardbodies or bait fishing with either Berkley Powerbait or glassies is a great way to find a few fish in this lake. Tackle Shack Staff member Dylan got out on the weekend and found no shortage of Brown Trout and redfin to 40cm on the western Lakes.
