PAUL'S FISHING

Paul Worsteling fished with Shaun Clancey from Humminbird BLA Australia, Shaun was keen to show Paul some awesome features on his new Humminbird Solix 15. After launching from Martha Cove they fished a number of locations including Mt Martha, Mt Eliza, Frankston and in shallow at Black Rock. This gave Paul a chance to see all the capabilities of the Solix 15 including side imaging in shallow water teaching him heaps more about his unit.

After spending most of the day sounding instead of fishing they decided to stop on a nice patch of fish sounded up in 22 metres off Mornington. In a 3 hour hot bite the guys caught 35 snapper with the majority of fishing ranging from 4 to 6 kilos. The best baits were red rockets, silver whiting and IQF pilchards rigged on twin hook rigs using 6/0 circle and 5/0 octopus as well as snapper snatchers. The key to keeping the bite going was using cut up pilchards for bait that were later found in the guts of the snapper kept for a feed.
