Salty Dog Charters in Port Fairy had a quality weekend with some first class bottom bashing on offer. Typical of the offshore fishing at the moment, some horse Gummy and School Sharks, along with Nannygai and Snapper showed up and kept customers happy.

Christian ‘doc’ Hughes also fished off Port Fairy yesterday and landed some cracker School Sharks.

Lake Purrembete stole the show this weekend with multiple big browns taken, including an absolute beast caught and released by Brad Hodges that pulled the scales down to 5.9kg. Dan Mackrell fished with Danny Torgensen and Declan Betts on the weekend. The boys had a killer session boating two large fish. Now is the time to put some time in on this lake if your after catching a trophy Trout well over the 10lb mark. The Redfin have also been biting well in the lake for those fishing worms or bouncing plastics. John Clements put in some time over the weekend which was him land a few quality fish up to 48cm.

With the weekend finally giving some ideal conditions offshore, Port Mac saw some barrel action with fish around the 120kg mark landed.
