Congratulations to Gerald, Erick and Luke on your ripper 104kg bluefin tuna caught offshore from Phillip Island, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling finished off their trip to St Helens Tasmania with some beautiful southern bluefin tuna caught just a couple of kilometres behind the surf break. Best lures were both diving hard bodies and pusher skirts with some quality eating fish coming home.

Paul and Jet have been sneaking off to Devilbend Reservoir this week to catch some beautiful estuary perch. The best bite has been on last light to half an hour after using diving Rapala lures. The boys recommend rugging up if you want to give it a try; warm jackets, beanies and gloves are a must as it is incredibly cold.

WESTERN PORT

LOCAL TUNA

The barrel tuna bite offshore from Western Port has been amazing to see. Some big tuna have been caught out behind Phillip Island in 20 to 70 metres of water and reports show these fish to be spread from Pyramid Rock to Wilsons Prom. It’s amazing to have access to these fish on our doorstep instead of the long trips to the west coast to get stuck into these big fish.

Harry Grant and Brandon Smith from Melbourne Storm fished with Gawaine Blake from Salt Guide offshore from Western Port on Thursday and caught a ripper barrel tuna on a lumo spreader bar on the long corner. Well done on the catch guys!

Gerald Sammut fished with mates Erick and Luke and caught this ripper 104kg bluefin tuna offshore from the Eastern Entrance of Western Port. Well done guys!
