Congratulations to Josh Favero and Bryce Sheard on your magnificent 145cm mulloway caught at Corinella, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul and Cristy Worsteling fished early in the week off Frankston in 20 metres of water and had a ball on the snapper. The session consisted of multiple 3-way hook ups with all fish landed using either snelled rigs or Instinct Snapper Rigs. The best baits were silver whiting, super pilchards and red rockets and burley for the session was block pilchards cut into cubes. On the way back to Mt Martha Paul sounded up fish off Frankston, Mt Eliza, Mornington and Mt Martha; the bay is loaded with fish!

Paul and Jet Worsteling took the IFISH crew down to Queenscliff and met up with Patrick Dangerfield of the Geelong Football Club and Aaron Habgood from Salt Guide. The boys did some filming for a project they are working on. They then headed to the grass beds where they caught a magnificent bag of XOS calamari with the best jigs being both IKA and Odori 3.0 in white or the Shimano Sephia Flashboost in Pink Candy colour.

After their session at Queenscliff Paul and Jet headed back across the bay to Carrum in 20 metres of water and had an amazing session on the snapper catching them to over 8kg. Red rockets were the dominant bait for the session however a number of fish took silver whiting, super pilchards and squid strips.

We get asked all the time what Pauls outfits are for snapper; Paul uses the Shimano Sentire Stealth Snapper rods paired with Shimano Saraogosa 6000 reels spooled with Maxima Fibre Glow (pink). PW has used the same setup for snapper for years and can’t fault them even for the abuse they get in his boats.
