It’s all happening in and around Port Albert. With the weather shining on us for a change, it has given the holiday anglers some good fishing time. Offshore has really started to fire, with good numbers of flathead, snapper, gummy sharks and pike being taken.
Whale Bay has been fishing well, with good gummies being caught, along with some nice-sized bronze whalers. On a recent trip my daughters, Natalie and Brie, caught a nice bag of sharks each.
The flathead have been fishing quite well, with catches of fish up to 2kg reported from outside the Port Albert entrance.
Snapper on the reef systems offshore are still being taken in good numbers, with the reefs out wide of Manns Beach producing the most fish.
Adam Tyrell landed himself a nice mako shark while drifting for flathead wide off Port Albert. Not quite happy with that effort, the following day he also landed himself a 24.5kg gummy. Well done, Adam.
Inside Port Albert the fishing has also been very good, with big flathead being taken in the shallows. Whiting are being taken in good numbers at all the usual spots at Port Albert.
Rick Berryman landed himself a very nice bronze whaler shark of 148kg inside Port Albert. It might pay to watch your toes when swimming!
With the weather as good as it has been, there is plenty of time to get out and have a fish, and there are plenty of fish to be caught. If you haven’t got a boat, the estuaries and jetties are all fishing well too, with flathead, trevally and mullet being caught by the kids.
