While the barrel bite continues with fish to over 140kg being caught yesterday there have been plenty of other options. Mick and Harry Allardyce fished off Port Fairy yesterday in 40m of water for this beautiful queen snapper. Gummy sharks have also be on the bite in close with bag limit catches off Warrnambool over the past few days in 42m of water.

Lee Oakley took a trip off Port Fairy during the week and caught this big gummy shark in 40m of water.

Bream and perch have also been consistent in the Hopkins estuary taking a range of harbodied lures and soft plastics.
