Congratulations to Sam Coffey and Trent Dickinson on their cracking snapper caught at the Top End of Western Port, you guys are this weeks’ Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

After the great session at the Goulburn River last week PW couldn’t resist taking the family back to chase some monster rainbow trout. Paul, Cristy and Jet fished with Jet’s mate Matthew, Cristy caught rainbows to 15lb, Jet to 10lb and Matt caught fish to 10lb. The best lures for the weekend were Rapala Minnows in brown trout pattern and dark coloured Berkley T Tail Minnows on Pink Fuze Hammerhead Jigheads. PW reports that the key is to get the lures down deep into the holes as that is where the fish are sitting and fishing from the Breakaway to the Pondage the best areas with plenty of fish still about.
