MORNINGTON

Heath Bidgood with a nice flathead he caught using his speargun in the Mornington area.

MOUNT MARTHA

Staff member Brendon Cunningham smashed the squid fishing from his yak and off the rocks at Mt Martha this week. He said the Odori jig with gold foil and blue back (#4) did most of the damage and the bite died once the sun hit the water and the boat traffic increased so it’s important to hit your spots at first light at the moment.

Chris O'Connell caught a nice 55 with his dad fishing off Mt Martha.

Michelle Britton caught a nice snapper and gummy fishing out from Mt Martha.
