Great going on the gummies

A few anglers have been catching some quality gummies out of both bays over the past week or so. When the weather has played ball many have sat with fresh baits in search of some flake, with a few coming from the deeper snapper ground in Port Phillip as bycatch. Fishing the top end of Westernport can be gummy central if the right positioning and bait presentation is adhered to, and there’s also been plenty on offer for the land based angler also.

Customer Jamie landed a ripper gummy while fishing fairly shallow south of Corinella. While out fishing for whiting over the grass beds Jamie scored a heap of silver trevally and put one to use on a bigger rod – and scored this nice gummy.

Customer Dennis has landed a couple of small table gummies while out fishing for snapper. Dennis has been finding the smaller gummies in the 20m area  while in search of snapper. Freshly caught and presented yakka have been good when fished on a larger circle hook.

Customer Peter has been searching around the northern region of the port for some table sized sharks also. Peter prefers the gummies just above legal size as he claims they are a better eating fish, and also finds them more fun on the lighter gear. Peter took a brace of sharks home for a feed in his most recent trip, which all took chunks of saury fished in one of the channels behind Joe’s Island.

Even the land based anglers can expect a few of flake if fishing the rights. Customer Ismail and Nicco fished from the shore in westernport in search of a a gummy or two to take home, and they weren’t disappointed. The boys landed a couple of small legal fish from the mudflats near Grantville, with silver trevally and salmon proving to be the successful baits.
