Congratulations to Leigh Woolford on your massive mulloway caught land based in Western Port, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling fished the lower end of Port Phillip Bay on Monday and had some fantastic success on the King George whiting. They landed around 30 fish to 42cm with the average fish measuring between 38 and 42cm and were also big and fat. The best baits on the day were Western Australian pipis, squid and mussels. The run in tide produced larger fish however the run out tide produced better numbers. The best areas on the day were the top of Mud Island through to St Leonards.

Paul and Jet fished Melbourne Cup Day with good friend James Edwards. They shot across to the same grounds from the day before around St Leonards and found good numbers of whiting again. Again WA pipi’s, squid and mussels did the damage helping them bag out on whiting to 42cm. Paul also got reports from the other side of the bay of good whiting in the Fishies beach area for those not wanting to head across the bay.

Paul’s top tip for whiting; using a Sea Dog berley pot with a down-rigger weight to keep it tight with the bottom filled with shredded pilchards definitely helped increase the whiting bite, a vigorous shaking of the rope to “stir the pot” seemed to always result in increasing the whiting bites. (BONUS TIP: cleaning the slime and scales from the whiting using the Tumbler Scaler Bag made the filleting process much quicker at the end of the day.)
