Corio Bay

Inside Corio Bay has remained very productive with Australian salmon still holding in great numbers right across the bay with the waterfront hosting most of the action. Quite often the salmon can be seen busting up in varies parts of the bay and casting a small soft plastic amongst it should result in a hookup nearly every time. Pinky snapper and flathead have both been a common by-catch at the moment and as the cooler months roll in the fishing inside the bay should only improve.


Bellarine Peninsula

The outer Harbour has been a king George whiting hotspot as of late with Clifton springs and point Wilson proving to be stand out locations. Fishing the lead up to a tide change has been the most effective time to fish. Fresh Calamari is always going to be a great bait along with pipis, to get the extra edge over the other boats drop the burley pot down with some pellets or pilchards cubes inside and that will bring the school right to you. Around the corner towards St Leonards the whiting fishing out there at the moment is hot also, the fish do seem to be bigger on average and appears to be plenty more fish too.

Calamari have also been in great numbers right across the peninsula also. Holding in anywhere from 2-4 metres of water over the broken ground and weed have been great locations to start looking. The water has been quite dirty due to all the recent rain but using squid jigs with a rattle has been a game changer, spray on squid scent has been helpful also.


Barwon Heads

Offshore Barwon Heads has been fishing very well for Gummy Sharks with some quality fish being caught. From Barwon Heads to as far west towards Lorne along the 30 metre line has been fantastic. Sharks to over 20kg have been boated along with plenty of smaller ones.


West Coast

Down the coast the tuna bite is hot! Barrels and school fish are everywhere, Barrels have been in great numbers between Port Fairy and right through to Port MacDonnell with fish to 140kg on offer! Aloha Super Ninjas have proved yet again to be a standout lure selection. School tuna have been in plague numbers right along the coast, typically a bit wider of the barrels however there are still plenty in closer. Starting on the 70m line and working around is the best place to start.


Broken River

By the looks of the reports, we are getting It seems that everyone has been searching for the giant cod that was caught last week. Chicken baits this week haven’t seen a meter plus cod reported but there has been heaps of smaller fish caught around 40/70cms. For those not targeting cod on chicken and keen to cast some lures around found that Soft Vibes like Fish Traps & Jackal Mask Vibes worked well below both weirs or downstream near the Archer St bridge.



Goulburn River 

The fishing above Nagambie has been good his week with plenty of trout and the odd cod being caught. Fishing with worms for trout has worked in the shallower water and cheese best for cod in the deeper areas. Down towards Shepparton there has been Yellowbelly caught in the faster flowing water below the Shepparton/Mooroopna causeway bridge and below the rock wall near the Shepparton cemetery. Spinnerbaits & Tn60s have been the best way to target these Yellowbelly. 


Shepparton Lake

The weed chopper has done it’s worked and cleared plenty of weed making fishing access so much easier. The early morning trout bite is starting to pick right up with reports of trout being caught casting 2/3-inch Keitechs or Strike tiger nymphs. Both boat ramps and the grass hill has been the stand out locations. If your bait fishing floating powerbaits and worms are always the best options. You can fish a lot more areas with bait under a float by targeting small pockets of water where you can get the baits next to the weed edges. 



Blue Rock Dam 

The water temps are dropping and the trout bite is rising at blue rock. Trolling small diving lures or casting small spinners has been the best methods for chasing trout. The dam’s trout stocks have also had a boost recently with thousands of trout stocked which will continue to see the fishing improve in the dam. The bass fishing has slowed off a little but there is still some solid fish being caught in the main basin on soft plastics in around 15/20ft near points of the grassy banks. 




Irrigation Chanels 

The drawdown of the channels is starting and it has not bothered the fish with heaps of fish being caught recently.Cod and Yellowbelly below drop bars and around bridge pylons have been great with the trusty old Zx40 blade and TN60 jackals working well vertically fished. Casting Arashi diving or square billed crank baits have also been a great way to target cod and Yellowbelly. Redfin are chewing on Black Berkely Gulps and 3inch Keitech Easy Shiners rigged with a beetle spin. Bait fishing out towards Shepp East has been good with worms and small yabbies working around the weed edges and syphons. 



Waranga Basin 

There is plenty of activity at Waranga Basin both on and off the water. The upgrades on the high-level boat ramp at Waranga Basin’s Harriman Point are in full swing with works expected to be finished by the end of the month. There have been some minor access interruptions but it will be all worth it once the levels rise yet again. On the water the Yellowbelly have been very active with those focusing their trolling along the main rock wall catching some good-sized fish. Those wanting to cast and retrieve have had success slow rolling soft plastics and tail spinners in around 7/10ft off rocky points.Bait fishing has slowed up off the banks with the levels dropping the fish have just seemed to have pushed into deeper water 5/10ft not 3/5ft that they were sitting in around a month ago.
