Tuna and trout trumps up
Mark Gercovich | May 2014

There will be some good sized trout moving around the local rivers in May.

May is a great time to target trout around Apollo Bay. A wide variety of bait and lures can be used but small soft plastic baitfish imitations are my go-to lure at this time of year.

New season excites
Daniel Kent | April 2014

Gummy sharks are a year round option off Apollo Bay and respond best to fresh baits, such as salmon fillets or freshly caught squid.

I love Easter time but not for the chocolate eggs.

The anticipation is running high and all the signs are there that this year could be one of the best yet.
