Congratulations to Jet Worsteling on your cracking 8kg snapper caught on soft plastic off Mount Martha, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul shared his success on the PPB snapper this week in the video above. Hit the PLAY button to get the details.

Paul and Jet fished with good mate James out from Mount Martha on a hunch the snapper might be hanging out there and they were correct. After trying to find some ground away from the crowds they settled on some fish they sounded in the same area as most were fishing. The first rack of rods went in and it didn’t take long until they had a 4 way of snapper being landed to around 6kg. The guys moved a number of times in their 4 hour session and landed a total of 15 snapper. Jet caught 3 of the biggest snapper including the best for the day; an 8kg fish, using a 140mm Squidgies Wriggler. Most fish were released only keeping couple of the smaller fish for the table. The baits for the day were red rockets by a mile and silver whiting with soft plastics catching the biggest fish for the day.

Paul and Cristy went out on Monday to a similar area off Mount Martha only this time going a bit deeper to find the fish. The bite was a little tougher this time around but after several moves they picked up 8 snapper to 6kg with the best bait for this session being silver whiting and the red rockets not so much. Paul reports the key to success for both sessions was burley with Paul going through a couple of blocks of pilchards each session to keep bites running hot.
