    Pt Vic Trip

    I too have caught plenty of Snapper in the same 2 areas you mention above. Also pannies near the sub basin regularly. I have fished the Port River all my life & still do. Mulloway was good again this year. With Bruce Harris, I got to know him quite well as I went to his courses in the evenings at the pub in Seaton. Also, another person I got to know quite well was Steve Szasz. He also taught me alot particularly for Kingfish in Pt Augusta.

    Thanks Mepp. Was it a full moon or didn't really matter ?. They said Snapper on a full moon was not good! (Aka good ol Bruce Harris).

    Yeh, as I said, during winter calm nights and a full moon, the whiting are quite reliable in metro waters. To me they tend to be much fatter & bigger as compared to day time fish. The photo above does not do the size of the fish justice but there were many stonkers amongst them. During summer, you can be very successful like this as well and not be in the hot sun during the day.

    Pt Vic Trip

    Well it was a very fruitful trip to say the least. Arrived at Pt Vic ramp on the Friday around 5pm. Just a small ripple on the water, perfect. Also there was a full moon. Even more perfect as we have been successful in catching whiting at night on a full moon many times before locally. We were launching, when others were retrieving and giving us strange looks. Snapper fishing are we? No, too early for them yet. Going night time whiting fishing. Good luck then. So off we go to our marks. Find some nice soundings on one of the marks and decided to anchor. The sun had just gone down & the wind had picked up somewhat. Anyway, lines in and after a few minutes, a nice fat whiting comes aboard. Then another and another. Well, by early next morning we had our double bag of big fat whiting. No throw backs or measuring needed. 40 fish all done and dusted and all at night. Bloody awesome. Good ol full moon worked again. Returned to the ramp and still had time for an egg and bacon cookup, a drink or three and a quick nap. The same morning, when the sun came up, a quick coffee and back to the ramp to scale the fish with my mates you beaut scaling bag/float. I still don’t trust them but had no issues. That done, off we went looking for squid. Caught a decent amount and cleaned them as well. We then went to do some more exploring around the island and surrounds to find some interesting spots to try next time! All in all, plenty of fish all in quick time and at night to boot.

    Well done. You deserve it after all your efforts. Just don't give away all your secrets or places you fish 😀

    July night one on the bloodworms

    It was an excellent run this year. Heaps of bloods out there. Easily got our limit in less than an hour. Just a sample in the photo below...
  7. You take some cracker photos and great reports. I'm surprised a fishing magazine has not asked you to do some write ups with these type of photos on a regular basis.

    Hi AJ. I have the manual 150 inflatable PDFs similar to Moons. They are pretty much the lightest ones you can get. They are ok to wear but still annoying to have on. I guess I will get used to them over time. The worst part is they require maintenance every 12 months which you can do yourself but you need to record the maintenance on the tag inside the jacket. Another thing you have to do & can get fined for!!!!. I think I will be starting a separate diary for the boat now to make sure everything is up to date & maintained.

    Port Adelaide King Fish

    Also... What has social media & google earth and whatever "Brag city freeway" means have anything to do with this site?. I am here to read & enjoy the posts & when I know provide info to others. Its all about sharing info isn't it. Anyway, I will continue as I have always done.

    Port Adelaide King Fish

    @ GW - " .... I post up my catch as well ..... just not directly in front of known land marks .....". Nothing stopping anyone doing that nor do I see a problem with this at all??. No different then providing a GPS mark for all to see. I've seen plenty of Kingfish photos with the powerhouse behind for example as well as heaps of other photos where you can clearly identify the background. I thought this is where you can share information!!!! which is what I did.

    Port Adelaide King Fish

    I have heard that large Kingfish are being caught in the Port River opposite the Colac Hotel. Looks like they are back again. Must mean that the water quality is improving I guess. Hopefully this will only get better and save me trips to Pt Augusta !!!.

    Pt Augusta Kingies

    Some nice Kingfish have been caught at Pt Augusta within the last week at around 18kg to 25kg. Live squid were the go. A bit late in season but my mate reckons that perhaps they have changed their habit a little now & could be around longer as the weather warms up. He said he did see a few schools on the surface (typical V shape as they move thru the water) particularly during low tide. Anyway a few more fillets coming my way. All good that the Kings are still hanging around. (He also caught a stack of garfish whilst chasing the squid for bait).

    Might be worth while speaking with Andrew Ettingshausen from ET Fishing. Just a thought....
