Bream have been prevalent across the Geelong waterfront this week with anglers landing fish from 30-40cm while fishing around boats and structure. Small yabbies and crabs have been stand out baits with some bream being taken on lures as well. Snotty trevalla are also present along the waterfront at the moment with Cunningham pier being a hot spot. Chicken as bait suspended under a float and cast in close to the pier is ideal. Following on from last week and garfish are still being caught throughout the bay on pippie and small bits of squid.
There is still the odd big snapper to be caught in the bay for those that are keen to fish after dark. Fish as light as possible as they can be finicky through winter, try fresh baits like garfish or squid and you’re in with a chance.
The Barwon River has continued to produce mulloway with some fish even being caught from the bank using lures, live baits like salmon and mullet are ideal with squid and even pilchards being good baits as well.
