PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling took advantage of the amazing long weekend weather and went fishing on Monday. After launching out from Martha Cove they headed down the coast and out through The Rip offshore to target sand and yank flathead using paternoster rigs baited with squid in 35 to 60 metres of water.

After catching a nice feed of fish they headed back inside the heads to the Queenscliff and St Leonards areas where they targeted King George whiting; squid, pipis and mussels did the damage on some nice whiting to 42cm. In the same areas they caught some cracking calamari on white Ika and Odori jigs with the key to finding the big squid was to find the eggs which could be spotted in the weed patches.
