Snapper ready to fire

While it has been an average snapper season weather wise, there is some fishable weather on it's way, with conditions looking good for the weekend and early next week. With the strong onshore winds Port Phillip has copped recently, the calmer weather will give anglers a window to fish. Before the heavy winds and onshore weather customer Travis and son Jax had some nice fish in the boat.


Customers Billy and Johnny fished out in the bay during some weather lulls and caught some nice snapper to around 6kg. The boys found the 16m area out from Mordialloc was the most productive and all fish were caught on Fish Candy pilchards. There have been some nice fish around the Mordialloc region and after the current blow the fish will fire up around the shallow reef in the area.


The Mt Eliza/ Frankston/Mornington area has also been fishing well over the last week or so, when anglers have been able to get out. The main talked about region seems to have been Frankston - Mt Eliza in 16m.Customer Izzy fished out from the Mornington/Mt Eliza region and landed some nice fish to 6kg. Silver whiting have been an excellent bait out in this area.


Customer Steve has also been catching fish not too far away in Mornington and Mt Martha. Steve has been finding quality fish in 16m of water, with fish to 5.3kg coming aboard. Steve has been fishing both strayline and paternoster rigs with fish taken on both. Pilchards fished on straylines have been good, while silver whiting heads have been excellent when fished on paternoster rigs fished just off the bottom. The same style of circle hook paternoster rigs have been good for anglers fishing from the shore. Nearby around Mt Martha rocks the snapper have been caught in close during the big south-westerly blows but caution must be exercised when fishing from these areas during rough weather.


Speaking of land based snapper, there have still been good numbers of fish caught from the stones around the bays and offshore. Customer Cong has landed snapper to 4kg from local rock points and ledges with pilchard being the most consistent bait. Saury and yakka have also been producing the odd fish, with the large fish favouring the harder baits.
