The southern Mornington peninsula has been the go if you have been after a nice gummy shark or some some serious Port Phillip squid. The squid fishing along all of the normal banks and marks has been good, with some guys doing well on the deeper patches out from Rye and Dromana when the normal drifts go a bit quiet. For doing this deep style of squid fishing 'tip run' styles of jigs are the go, as they are designed to be held deep with minimal resistance and stay where the squid want them.


Customer Peter fished with one a few of his family members out from Blairgowrie where he collected a nice bag of quality squid fishing in 3 - 5m of water, along with a solid cuttlefish. A mixture of jigs including white did the job on them. The nice table sized gummy was caught in 15m of water in the South Channel right on the tide change.


Customer Kris did some squid fishing out from Martha Cove and managed a good bag up to around 1kg in weight. Chris found that UV white was the hot colour, with all squid falling to it.


The south channel has been producing gummies for customer Fil, after catching some squid from the area he managed to land a nice eating size shark in the channel using the squid as bait. Fresh is best!
