Recommended squid fishing spot
Name: San Remo Jetty
Region/State: Victoria/ Westernport
Country: Australia
Nearest Major Town: Phillip Island
Short Description: Well the jetty is very productive at night every time i've gone i fish under the first or second light pole. Calamari are around also garfish, whiting and trevally. there are also a few big rays which call the jetty home. they'll take to your jig and i dont think it'll be the same again. best fishing at night on 3.5 jigs orange or green the most succesful. biggest Calamari i've caught would have been around 2kg. bottom is sandy with little rocks. a lot of weed on the incoming tide.

CLEELAND BIGHT / SAN REMO PIER:
Colin also reports that few anglers have been getting stuck into the calamari
off Cleeland bight and the San Remo jetty. The EBB tide has been most productive
with silver whiting under a float the best option.

CLEELAND BIGHT
Some big squid have again turned up at Cleeland Bight during the week. Both boat and landbased anglers are getting into them. Colin Guilmartin thinks they have come in on the moon.

well i must agree with you. i have NEVER seen anyone catch a squid off san remo pier ...though i know pat has had some luck at this spot (i.e. RX3-BOi). i have tried myself on a few occasions. i would have thought the current was too strong for them to hang around here. perhaps its only good at change of tide?

if any "real" people have caught squid at san remo or in cleeland bight recently please let us know.

cheers, glen :th

have caught/witnessed 5 calamari captures from boat in Cleeland Bight. if the area fires you can catch em near the submerged pier before you head out the entrance, problem is that they are not always there.

EASTERN ENTRANCE
Staff members Adam Ring and Jarrod Day fished Phillip Island land based on Wednesday. The boys finally ended up in Cleeland Bight where they landed a couple of nice Calamari on silver whiting baited jigs near the top of the tide.

Hey glen,
I realise this was an old post, but im new to this site and just saw it.
Not sure what you mean by real people, if you mean with photos unfortunately i dont have any, but there are definitely squid to be caught off san remo pier. Either first or second lights, middle of the night seems to be the best. My dad and I have caught some absolute monsters, unfortunately we always seem to "forget" the net and have lost some big ones.

But just to confirm there are definitely squid there.
Also, although they are caught during slack tide, we have caught them here when the current is reall strong. Only way to fish is on a patternoster style rig to get it down, then just jig it next to the pier and hope for the best.

Cheers, George

hi george,


by "real" people i meant someone other than from a tackle shop. from my experience, tackle shop fishing reports are sometimes a bit hard to believe...

thanks for the info about squidding at san remo. I will give it a crack next time I am down there.

Oh, haha, your not wrong mate!
Seems the fish/squid are always where you dont look, and seem to always take the expensive lures only :P.
Thanks for the reply, good to see such quick responses.

Happy squidding mate

Hi everyone,

I stopped at San Remo pier on Wednesday (Australia Day) and there was a couple of guys jigging at the start of the pier (on the ocean side). They had a nice big squid chase their jig but it was not very keen. Would have been a nice catch though. There was plenty of ink stains on the pier.

Cheers, Glen
