Thanks Mikii v,
that's some very good catch dr drift !!!
thanks for the regular updates !!!
Im landbased so its a shame the squiddies around altona and pt cook don't come into the piers like mornington and queenscliff...i wonder why...or do they ? i havn't heard.
hey i have always want to catch those gar fish, what hook size would i be looking at for those gars ?? oh and also the samon??? i'v always had trouble with fish + hook sizes.
im heading out somewhere in the southern part this weekend, not sure where yet.
I mostly fish of a boat, so dont know of piers to get squid round altona, only place i have had great success would be flinders.
As for the gars, use the most tiny hook you can get. I dont remember the size but its tiny! mainline to float, to split sinker than hook. Use crushed squid as bait. As for salmon, I use small size metal lugs. And when they are busting up on the surface, you can throw any type of lure and they cant help themselves! I want to try soutern end this weekend too. Maybe Queenscliff...Squidlies down that way are so much bigger, have landed 3kg+ down that way! Just its alittle far from Altona, 45klms I think by boat...Anyway good luck and Hopefully Ill be reading one of your post(reports) on your catch soon...
