Congratulations to Daniel Stefanetti on his cracking kingfish caught from the Eastern Entrance of Western Port, you are this weeks’ Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S REPORT

Paul fished with his mate James and Collingwood footballer Mason Cox on Monday; launching from Martha Cove the lads headed over towards Mud Island where they caught one of PW’s best bags of whiting in years as well as some fantastic blue spot flathead and tommy rough’s. The key to their success was burley pellets in the Sea Dog burley cage on the bottom as well as using a bait cocktail of pipi and squid. As always with Paul’s whiting trips he made cleaning easy by using the Tumbler Scaling Bag which took away all the slime and scaled their catch prior to filleting.
