Gippsland

Plenty happening in Gippsland at the moment – whether you’re fishing out around Mallacoota and the eastern estuaries for bream etc, and big flathead and whiting back around Lakes Entrance. The previously dirty water holding around these estuaries has cleared up heaps and brought the fishing back into gear. Down through corner inlet and Welshpool there has also been some ripper snapper, gummies, kingfish and tuna all caught just offshore.

Customers Davor and Mick fished out from Port Albert during teh week in search of snapper and gummies. They launched from Port Albert and fished offshore of Manns Beach in 20m of water. No gummies were found, but they did land a nice snapper of around 4kg which took a yakka head. A small hammerhead shark also turned up which was landed on the same bottom bouncing rig and gear, with a fresh fillet proving successful.

Customer Caitlin started of her weekend with a bang fishing in the Gippsland lakes around Lakes Entrance. She was stoked to catch this beast of a flathead out of her kayak while fishing the shallow flats during the outgoing tide. This chunky fish was tempted by a 170mm swimbait fished extremely slow to mimic a baitfish cruising the edges.
