Although the weather currently in Melbourne isn't very inspirational - the forecast is looking like some excellent weather over the coming weekend. With
the recent rain the bays will be a dirty but the fish like whiting should be firing. Influxes of freshwater really stir the critters up that the whiting
prey on, and they should be ready to go by the weekend. Westernport's KGW have been fishing well in all areas, with the main hot zones between Tyabb
and Stony Point - be it around the middle spit or on the banks. Young gun Fisherman Mike got out and on them recently with his Dad. The guys launched
at Hastings and fished the banks both north and south and landed some. Mike and his Dad are only new to Westernport's whiting fishing and took on some
tips and tricks and landed a few nice fish on pipi and squid.
Fishing nearby water customer Izzy and Brett from 'Reedy's Rigs' had a good session, with a KGW bagout in only a few hours. Fishing the ultra shallow water
before first light with a bit of surface chop the fish were biting hard and they were done and dusted not long after sunrise. The use of a GPS and
sounder to pinpoint small sand patches and drops amongst the weed enabled locating the correct ground and fish was much easier. Fishing bass yabbies
on the Reedy's 'Tinganoster' rigs was deadly - with wide gap hooks ensuring the fish stayed hooked. If you're wondering what a 'Tinganoster' rig looks
like - we have these and the deadly 'Ultra' rigs in store.
