PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling along with Tom Hughes, Zane and Frenchy launched from Hastings on Thursday morning with bluefin on their minds. Heading out to Bass Straight from the Eastern Entrance and fished along Phillip Island and found a good patch of fish. Once located they had a double hook up on Buku small skirted lures (feather skirt & small jet head) behind strip teasers. Once these fish were landed, Tom, Zane and Frenchy were in the drink after their first speared tuna. Zane Mansfield managed to spear his first ever tuna estimated around 20kg. The team are still out fishing when this report was sent in.

Paul and the IFISH team fished with Craig Ingram at Mallacoota as part of a dusky flathead brood stock and release program. They fished the lower lake around Goodwin Sands using Squidgy soft plastics, the fish were then taken to Narooma to a fisheries laboratory where they will be bred with the target to release 150,000 juvenile back into the Gippsland lakes in coming months. Also caught during the trip were some nice salmon, silver trevally, big chopper tailor all on Squidgy Bio Tough soft plastics. The following day Paul got a hot tip from his mate Frank Milito and headed to the Snowy River near Marlo. The target for the day was monster bream using freshly caught local prawns for bait Paul landed a dozen cracker bream and had a ball using a simple running ball sinker rig and Gamakatsu worm hook rig.
