Yesterday’s ideal conditions saw plenty of anglers get offshore to chase some of the quality bottom species currently on fire. Dylan Pace and Scott Gray took the Sea Cruiser 6500SC for a spin off Port Fairy where they put together an awesome mixed bag. Micro jigging with Storm Koikas in the 80g and 100g models fitted with twin assist hooks saw plenty of species including large Nanagai, Silver Dory and Pinky Snapper hit the deck.

Dan Hoey of Salty Dog Charters was also out on the water and caught a mixed bag of bottom species, along with two pocket rocket Mako’s.

With a large flow of freshwater, the estuaries have shut down a little but some good fish are still on offer for those putting in the effort. Dylan Pace and Michael Hunt found some solid Bream either side of 1.2kg using a mix of Zman soft plastics and blades.
