The whiting fishing in Westernport continues to roll on with good numbers of school fish coming in and some larger fish around also. Large numbers of the
fish have been in the 34 - 38cm size range, but searching a bit deeper has given anglers a few more here and there above 40cm. Fisherman Mike landed
a lovely fish of 45cm during his last fish on the port with his dad.
Mike and his dad fished out from Hastings They guys found that the single most effective setup were the 'Reedy's Rigs' 'Tinganoster' style rigs in
bass yabby and bloodworm patterns. Small pieces of squid and pipis tipped on the hooks were deadly with a nice feed of fish coming home. Customer Jamie
has also been doing well on the whiting out from Stony Point with bags of fish to just over 40cm coming from the bank edges and also around the spit
during the run out tide. Pipi, mussel and squid have been the best for him.
Customer Chris from the Victoria Police Angling Club has been catching some nice whiting out from Hastings, with deeper water providing the results. Chris
has been finding the fish in water 15m or so and has found pipi and squid strips best in the deeper currents. Fishing stiff leader 'snatcher' style
rigs has also kept line twist and tangled rigs to a minimum and helped him secure his bag of fish.
