Squid From The Kayak, Ppb
Posted 23 October 2006 - 05:16 PM
I thought I'd post these photos of some squid my girlfriend and I have caught from our kayaks over the past few months. All were caught at various spots along the eastern side of Port Philip Bay.

Less than 500m offshore, the reason there are so many boats is that the location was Black Rock on a Saturday morning Busier than Burke St most weekends It's a shame the fishing is so good there!

I miss feelin' the tug o' a squid on me line.
Some o' those were crackers! Be there any like that Altona way now?
Here be a fine question:
I want to introduce me lass to fishin' but her father's too afraid to let her on the boat with me. So what do you suggest to get her interested?

As for the squid around Altona - all my squid in the past month or so have been 'bycatch' from just having a jig in the water while targetting flathead or pinkies. I've been getting a couple every trip. So I reckon you should just get out there and drift over your favorite flathead spot, throw that brown hayabusa jig out and keep half an eye on it Another thing, word on the street is that the gars are starting to fire up, and that they are the best bait for bigger snapper at the moment

Me Brother got his boating licence last week an' is keen to captain me boat after he finishes his exams.
So a float fer the gars, a jig for the squid, a flattie soft plastic and a snapper rod. Hmmmm...I don't know if I can fit Mary on the boat......Haharrgh.

Actually, maybe I should give you the lot - I've had some news about work recently that I'm both excited and sorrowful about - I might be moving to Canberra for work in the next month or so

the trout fishing around there is also ok though you need to drive a bit further out of town. lake jindabyne is a couple of hours drive i think.
IF canberra was near the sea it would be primo.

I've been reading about Jindabyne and Eucumbene - I reckon trolling from the kayak or bait fishing for trout at night would be really fun. There is also a place called Durras (spelling?) which is apparently 2-3 hours drive away, on the coast, which has good fishing. I'll be sure to keep you updated on fishing in Canberra, I'll sure miss the floundering though!

maybe you could even take the kayaks down some rivers? not sure if they are designed for that or not. though you will need someone to drive the car to the exit point so you will need at least 2 people. i think its about 2 hours drive to the coast from canberra. i imagine they have a couple of flounder there!
in any case, you will have to come back to melbourne before the elephant fish season! how could you miss that!
