Congratulations to Gerry Morsman and Julian Rennie on their cracker gummies caught Offshore, you are this weeks’ Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy, Jet and the IFISH crew fished Darwin over the past week starting off their trip fishing with Darwin Barra and Crab tours catching some very large crabs and some nice barramundi on soft plastics. The crew also fished around town to check out the local Darwin species and caught bream, tusk fish and crabs. To finish off the trip Paul and Jet jumped on board Arafura Bluewater Charters and headed offshore where they caught ridiculous amounts of fish in 40 metres of water. The species caught included saddle tail snapper, small mouth nannygai, red emperor, gold spot cod and many more. This trip has reminded Paul that no matter the time of year, Darwin always seems to deliver when it comes to fishing.

CARDINIA CREEK

Holly Palmer had a great session at Cardinia Creek catching plenty of mullet.

CORINELLA

Staff members Mark Keaveny and Brendon Cunningham fished the incoming tide on Friday night and were rewarded with a consistent bite from gummies and school sharks. The guys found mantis shrimp to be the most productive bait for gummies as well as freshly caught yakkas. The guys were using Shinto Pro octopus beak hooks in size 4/0 and it was important to have gummy burley pellets running to keep the bite going.
