Congratulations to Jessica Jarman on your pair of cracking snapper caught at The Corals, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul and Cristy Worsteling launched from Martha Cove and headed towards Mud Island and St Leonards based on their success in those areas last week. Within 3 hours they had a beautiful bag of King George whiting to 42cm. They then headed to the Queenscliff area to chase big squid and caught some monsters to 1m from tip of the hood to tip of the tentacles. The squid took the pink Sephia Clinch jigs as well as baited jigs using Australia Salmon as bait. The key to get their bag of whiting and squid was shredded pilchard berley in a Sea Dog berley pot on the bottom shaken regularly to keep the bite going. Paul’s go-to whiting rig was an extended paternoster with a size 6 Gamakatsu worm hook.
