PAUL'S FISHING

Jet Worsteling and staff member Ben Clothier fished off Mt Eliza in 4 to 6 metres of water and caught good numbers of squid using IKA and Odori squid jigs. They then flicked soft plastics and bait in an area about 1km off the Mornington pier and caught some nice pinkies to around 40cm. The guys got a call from good customer Sasha Sergejew asking them to join him and his daughter Courtney chasing Western Port whiting. The evening consisted of a hot whiting bite in 13 metres of water near Tortoise Head. They landed their bag of whiting measuring up to 43cm using mussel and fresh squid strips for bait on size 6 Gamakatsu worm hooks.

Paul and Cristy Worsteling fished out from Martha Cove with Paul’s parents; Hans and Henny. They caught good numbers of whiting and some beautiful blue spot flathead to 50cm. Best baits for the session were mussels, pipis and squid strips. Paul kept the bite at the boat by adding an extra sinker to his Sea Dog berley pot keeping it hard to the bottom and regularly topped it with shredded pilchards. To make clean up easier for everyone the Tumbler Scaler bag was used on the trip back to the ramp.

FEATURE PRODUCT

Chris from Cassar Fishing Charters has been in the thick of it this week and caught fantastic numbers of tuna. “We have had an incredible run on local bluefin over the last few months. If you want fishing success, the little things can make a massive difference. I have been running the Strada Tracka with amazing results. They look great and hang in even at speed coming down sea. The Phantom is a standout, but every colour is a proven fish catcher. PS, the red head has also been getting the bites." - Chris Cassar
