I asked a guy there what they were catching at the moment,and he said Snapper i replied bull---sh .In less than one hour i had 4 runs.I got to retrieved only two of them only because one good man that was there helped me out as he had a gaff,or no was i was able to bring them up on light gear. He weight the first one for me and it was bang on 5kg. It was the first time ever that i caught Snapper. In July the same year i was catching 25-35 Salmon and on the same year in December 2013 and 2014 i was catching 1-3 kg Salmon. I havn't been back ever since. My father fishes that area reguarly so i will know when the time is ripe again. I also don't like the 3 or so meter drop. I know a few regulars there and they have shown me photos of Sharks,10 kg Snapper,big Trevally,and other speices that are really not that common for this side of the bay.The depth is about 10 meters,so it don't matter too much high tide or low tide. Be prepared fisheries visit ofter expecually Snapper seoson as this is their breeding grounds.I have seen with my own eyes upto 70 big ones caught in one day. Good luck


Nice fish, what time of year were they picked up?

Hey all!
Hope baring this icy weather is paying off for some keen fishoes!

Just got a question about station pier, are you allowed to fish there all throughout the night? I have been there during the day but I just want to make sure fishing is still allowed all through the night?

Much appreciated!

From the Port of Melbourne website:
Access to Station Pier

Station Pier is open to the public throughout the year during daylight hours for pedestrians, except on cruise ship days when the pier is at its busiest coordinating customs, immigration, quarantine, security and baggage handling responsibilities
Cheers,
Neil
