Peter Goode, Rhooky, Mouse and Mitch Rowe fished yesterday off Port Fairy and got 4 nice blue eye and some kind of eel type species, saw some tuna or albacore but didn’t get a hook-up, and got a couple of snapper on the way back in, using the bait from Richardson Marine and keeping the fish pristine with our flake ice.
Belinda Westlake, Rachel McKenzie, James and Johnno Free with Andrew Westlake had a productive day off Warrnambool in 20m east of the Hoppies mid morning yesterday, with 9 snapper, one 48cm and one 50cm.
On Cassius Cray we joined the herd of boats at Port Fairy chasing kingfish, there were 97 trailers parked at 9am, and possibly due to all the traffic or for whatever reason the fishing was slow, with only reports of a few smaller ones caught. Ashley Dance found a school which looked like fairly small fish, out a bit further but they were moving very quickly, very flighty and not tempted by anything that any of us cast at them. Great conditions on the water and it’s always a very scenic trip out there.
