Fishers keen to get back out

Well the news all us fishers have waited for had come around AGAIN!

After our short-lived snap lockdown we are all able to get back out and wet a line, obviously we haven’t had any reports come in over the past week but there is still plenty of good options out there!

Clifton Spring still should have some good fishing on offer for pinkie snapper, whiting and squid.

They should all be hanging in similar areas, which makes it easy with the snapper in 7 metres of water, the whiting between 4-6 metres and the squid holding on the shallow weed beds in about 3 metres.

Offshore, Barwon Heads should still have some hot tuna action going at the moment and with the lack of boats on the water over the past five days they should chew pretty well.

Trolling small skirts along the coast in 40 metres of water would be a good starting point.

Kings should still be hanging around off Ocean Grove but it will be well worthwhile poking your head in the rip as they should start to show up in there over the next few weeks.

The Barwon River around Fyansford will be well worth a look, especially if you’re taking the kids as it

provides great access close to home and is currently fishing very well.

Perch, redfin and carp are all holding up in good numbers right through the system, with small hardbody lures and live worms

working a treat.
