Winter Snapper in PPB

While not normally an intended target in Port Phillip during Winter – there have been some nice snapper being caught in the bay. If you’re after a snapper during a break in the weather – fishing landbased from Mordialloc north has been worth a stop in. Fishing from the boat, out wide from Mornington and Mt Martha is the area to try from.

Customer Hai and mate fished from the shore up near Sandringham during the last bout of rough weather. Fishing from the rocks and using surf gear, the boys caught a couple of solid snapper. The late night tide change was when the fish came on, and the best bait was freshly caught squid.

Customer Pete fished a mate out on the mud off Mornington recently. The boys fished in 20m and spent quite some time sounding before they marked some nice fish. All fish were caught on silver whiting fished on both snelled and paternoster rigs.

Customer Steven fished landbased from the rocks up around Port Melbourne where he has been catching some solid pinkies and school snapper, along with good table sized flathead. Steve has been fishing light surf gear and baits of pilchard and squid for best results.
