Amanda Kelliar with a red mullet or the ‘chicken of the sea,’ as they are known.

Outside the entrance, when conditions have allowed there have been some great bags of fish caught. Naturally this puts a smile on the face of boaters everywhere. Although there have not been any reports of the larger toothies, good-sized gummies have been caught, along with quality flathead and salmon that have taken a variety of lures and natural baits.

Ian Harvey and his magnificent 90cm yellowtail kingfish caught in 3m of deep dirty water while chasing whiting, using small calamari bait.

Information from the Boat Storage is that the weather and fishing conditions have been described as fairly good, and that the fish have responded in kind. There have been good numbers of gummies caught inside and outside the entrance that have been to the 19kg mark. The fish have taken a variety of baits such as pilchards, fish fillets and squid.

Wayne Morley with a 72cm Gippsland Lake mulloway caught on lure. A once in a lifetime capture.

Surprises make our great sport engaging and addictive. The mystery, the extraordinary captures and the joys of discovery are all part of why we fish. I have a mulloway story to share with you that has amazed bait anglers and totally shocked everyone who throws lures in the Gippsland Lakes. Even more bizarre is the news of two gummy sharks caught in the system as well. This report will delight you with what anglers have discovered recently and highlights some of the secret treasures we are so blissfully unaware of.
