Flinders pier snorkelling

Post by marckyg123 » Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:51 pm

After a successful fishing trip at the Mornington boat hire caught a couple squid and a 60cm flathead. after that me and my mate decided we wanted to do more fishing so we went for a squid fish and flinders pier. We had the snorkels with us so we went for a swim and saw plenty of crabs, wrasse, whiting and stingrays. On our way out of the water I spotted something moving quite fast.. It was an Octopus! It was massive if only we could get a rod down to it under the pier :( Still an exciting trip flinders is a really great diving spot go check it ou :thumbsup:

I did this a couple of times also. But i did it to retrieve lost squid jigs and fishing rigs. Actually found a rod half way along the pier which hadnt been there that long and to this day i still catch whiting on it.
To unfit to snorkel these day though but the free sinkers and jigs were great
