Looking for whiting from the Yak

Post by whambamsam » Fri Mar 20, 2020 1:38 pm

Anyone had any luck lately? Went chasing a few weeks ago around Blairgowrie with no luck ~ just had the one squid and the usual plague of pinkies, couple of flatties. Landed 1 small spotted/slimy mackerel which was nice.

Looking for a spot to drift around in tomorrow morning if anyone has any tips!

At least you got some and not a donut.
Coronet bay seems steady producing whiting. St Leonards too and Werribee. I guess anywhere with weed bed sand holes can produce whiting. Burley is essential. I use gotcha burley pellets. Makes a big difference.

Good on you!

I might head to Clifton Springs tomorrow morning for some squid, maybe whiting. Who knows.

So ended up at Sorrento, paddled back and forth between the ferry pier and blairgowrie marina on the hunt. Dropped 2 good sized squid, and couldn't really find the whiting but ended up popping my KGW cherry - 35cms.

Ended the session with 7 squid, fishing from around 8-1:30

We struggled on the week end and I only got 2 whiting in that area ( Reef Island ) however the micro pinkies were getting bait pretty quick and probably quicker than any whiting could

still got a feed though with a 105 cm gummy in the mixed bag -- one guy picked up 2 kingfish and would have got more but ran out of hooks as he was busted off a few times
My kayak PBs
Gummy shark 128 Cm - Elephant fish 85 Cm - Snapper 91 Cm - KG Whiting 49 Cm - Flathead 55 Cm - Garfish 47 Cm - Silver Trevally 40 Cm - Long Tail Tuna 86 Cm - snook 64 Cm - Couta 71 Cm - Sth Calamari 44 Cm hood - Cobia 117 cm
