Mark Gercovich | March 2014

Jo ‘Jigaster’ Rowland and the author with some kings taken with Nick Murrell recently.

Mark Gercovich | February 2014

The Hopkins River has continued to improve and producing excellent sized bream.

February is the peak time for many summer species, in particularly the larger game fish like mako sharks and yellowtail kingfish. Some good specimens of these fish have already shown up in early summer, so hopefully this is a pointer to some excellent angling once the warm calm February days arrive.

Shape up for shark season
Daniel Kent | February 2014

February offers so many fishing options that mixed bags of fish like this are common place off Apollo Bay.

Anglers fishing out in 70m+ of water have been reporting plenty of blue sharks and the occasional mako swimming up their berley trails. Large numbers of aero squid can be caught out in this depth by leaving baited jigs suspended mid water and these squid make great fresh baits for all of the shark species.

Nigel Fisher | January 2014

Sam and Jack recently enjoyed a weekend fishing in Portland.

December has seen some great fishing. The Lee Breakwater has been at its best in the last couple off months with some big snapper up to 10kg and some great gummies, schoolies and seven-gillers in big sizes. The squid have also moved in and the whiting are getting better.
