The bread and butter fishing around the bay has kept anglers busy with gars, pinkies, bream and whiting all on offer depending on which area you're fishing.
Last week customer Nick sent us a report from himself and his young daughter and this week they're out again. Nick and Chantelle had a fish from the
pontoons in Mordialloc creek and Chantelle is making catching fish part of her new weekend routine! Chantelle was chuffed to land a few small pinkies
from the pontoon, all of which went back to fight another day.
On the bread and butter front, there have been plenty of garfish around the local piers and breakwalls and they are excellent to take the kids out to try their luck on. The fish haven't been restricted to any certain areas and have been caught all over the bay. Some of the better starting points have been Mornington, Seaford, Mordialloc, Beaumaris and Brighton. If you're in the boat many of the shallow sandy coves and bays have been holding good numbers as well.
Customer Pat caught a nice feed of gars in the shallows during the week, with a light berley trail of fine grit powder mixed in with tuna oil getting the
fish in close to the boat. Small pieces of banana prawn and squid caught him his bag of fish. Staff member Don has also been catching some gars from
the local piers, with Seaford and Frankston being the more productive. Don has been fishing small pieces of banana prawn in his berley trail and on
most occasions has managed a goo bag of fish. Adjusting float and bait depth and buoyancy has also been a critical factor.
