King George Whiting

The whiting fishing continues to provide anglers with quality fishing, with both bays producing fish. The lower regions of both bays have held consistency while cooler top end waters are starting to slow down more. There have still been fish caught in the north of both bays but the strike rate has been lower.

Areas closer to the currents of Bass Strait hold a less-fluctuating temperature and provide more consistent bites for the KGW over the Autumn and Winter months.

Customer Rich has been doing very well on the whiting throughout the bottom reaches of Port Phillip over the past week or so. Rich has been fishing the Rosebud and Rye areas and has been finding good numbers of fish with many excellent quality of 40cm or so. Cocktail baits of pipi and squid have been best.

Across in Westernport customer John has still been catching whiting, but working a bit harder for them. With colder water temperatures the fishing right up on the banks has been slower, and better bites coming deeper out from 10m or so. Fishing pipi on smaller fine gauge mosquito style hooks has been the best way to capitalise on the bites.
