Congratulations to Kal and Matt on your double up on snapper from Western Port, you guys are this weeks Catch of the Week.

GOULBURN TROUT

The stonker rainbow trout from the Goulburn River are still being caught and on a variety of methods. Lure fishermen are spoilt for choice with hard bodies, Tassie Devils and soft plastics all working however the stand out (especially with harder flowing and dirty water) has been PowerBait rigged with a swim feeder which has attributed to the majority of catches this past week.

Gerry Morsman and Garry Norton used Atomic diving minnows and soft plastics.

AROUND THE STATE & BEYOND

PORTLAND

Portland barrel tuna have not stopped and there has been a consistent size class from 80kg to 140kg caught at variety of locations in the area. Based on customers coming through the store; “redbait” skirted lures especially the Bonze Winged Exocet in “Paris” paired with a pink or green spreader bar have been dominating the fish from Portland to Port Mac.
