PAUL'S FISHING

Jet Worsteling and his mate Ryder Lyne did a short dive off the beach at Mount Martha on the weekend. They saw countless numbers of pinky snapper in massive schools and Jet was lucky enough to spear 3 at around 33cm each. Those fish were turned into a beautiful meal served with an asian sauce.

Based on the fantastic numbers of fish Jet saw, during the week Jet and Paul took the boat out to a spot off Mount Martha in 6 metres of water to dive together. Once under the water they saw big schools of pinky snapper to around 38cm as well as tommy rough, yakkas and garfish. Jet managed to spear 2 nice pinky snapper and some leather jackets for a feed. Jet also speared some solid yakkas to use for bait at a later stage. If you love your spearfishing then it is well worth a look at some of the inner reefs along the Mornington Peninsula.
