Whiting reports are still good at the minute, with Port Phillip Bay firing up a bit more over the last 10 days. Most anglers are fishing for the Whiting around the Mornington Peninsula, with plenty of fish around from Mt Martha through to Portsea. Customer Henry caught his fair share off Sorrento pier while targeting Squid. He had a second rod setup with small piece of mussel on a Black Magic KL 1/0 wafting in the tide, and ended up catching 6 Whiting, up to 41cm.
Along at McRae, the Whiting fishing has been good with lots of school sized fish moving along the beaches. Fishing near Anthony’s Nose at night is popular with anglers and is a good spot to catch Whiting on a run out tide. Mussel and Pipi are the best baits.
Squid numbers around the same areas have been good, as well as further up at Mornington. Customer Pat went and threw a few jigs around Mornington North and managed a bag of 17 Squid between him and 2 mates, with the biggest being 400g. 2.5 size Yamashita Lives in Red Shrimp and Pilchard patterns were the best.
Staff member George fished for the Squid around Mt Martha and also caught a few, with the size being slightly larger. Yamashita and Breaden jigs in bright colours worked well around the weedbeds and rock patches.
Customer Ryan fished from the rocks along from Frankston and caught 7 Squid in a morning session. Yamashita size 2.5 in QSK was his best jig.
