I fished it last Sunday (27th) from the kayak, two of us caught and released at least 20 Snapper each in about 3 hours. There's some huge fish in amongst them, the biggest would have been around 70cm. They were moving around a lot, plenty of large and small schools on the sounder.

For landbased fishos I think it would be a matter of moving around a lot and chucking out really long casts. The fish weren't hanging around structure, they were schooling mid-water (2-3m) in 7-10 meters of water. Not one fish was taken off the bottom, all were taken working the lures through the 2-3 metre depth.

I started with small paddletail plastics, but no joy. Changed to curtail grubs on a 1/12th jighead and bang, that was what they wanted!


Some nice fish there

Yeah, it was a lot of fun fishing really light gear, any heavier wouldn't have worked.

I should have mentioned that there were quite few bust-ups of Salmon or Tailor there as well. We didn't bother chasing them down, too busy on the Pinks, but it looked like a few of the landbased guys got onto them.

The good thing about Tailor in there is: Tailor+Yarra/Docklands = Jewies...Woohoo!

There's no Jewfish in the Yarra/Docklands MATE. All a myth.
