Might get some calmer weather Friday Saturday
There's nothing . . . absolutely nothing . . . half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.

Fingers crossed. I've got some friends coming up this weekend so hopefully we can get out for a fish.

Just a short report re KGW. Fished the last 2 arvo's . Yesterday was opposite Nungurner in 11 meters again. Bite a drop on squid mostly small stuff but 8 species all up including probably the worlds smallest gummi at about 1lb..my first. And a 1/2lb mackerel of some sort also a first. Good place to take newbie anglers like a partner and or kids as always plenty of action IME. Catch included a few good sized sand whiting a couple of KGW keepers and a few more undersize KGW - though all were returned. Today I went up to Nyerimilang and fished a couple of spots 4m and then 1.7 again with squid and had 6 species all undersize incl 6 KGW 2 of which were keepers at 28 and 30 cm - though released. Ended the session fishing a float with squid on a size 4 and had the slightly bigger KGW that way. Left something down there biting to get back to Paynesville before dark o clock. Toady central by the way!

PS Also went across to Steamer landing earlier in the week at short notice to fish the surf for an hour around high tide. Only 1 salmon about 1.5lb on metal slice.
PPS On Monday fished Mclaughlins estuary in the boat which was also very quiet with only a Snook - caught - released - caught again on SP... and a few bits and pieces - no keepers and no salmon.

I had another go at the KGW this morning around Carstairs, I did not get a bite all morning, it seems like they have moved on for the moment or maybe they were there but a bit shy because it was so glassy calm, I find it better if there is a bit of chop in the water. There were huge schools of yellow eye mullet around but they were not taking the mussel or squid I had.
cheers.

Fort King Paynesville boat ramp feedback. A few KGW caught east side of Raymond On the sand is all I could elicit from the 2 seniors cleaning em. Probably 12 fish all up - which took a few moves and most of the day apparently .Some quite large/fat the biggest KGW I have seen i.e. 40 + cm Conversely a few others looked a bit short of 27cm. Dog soon lost interest so we walked on.

Just a short missive to update the current postcode of some of the KGW family. Fished off Nungurner once again in 11m yesterday arvo for 4hrs during the outgoing tide. Using small squid bait on size 4 paternoster and without any berley caught almost a fish a drop incl Flathead, KGW, Sand Whiting, a mackerel of sorts, a 30 cm pike, a 40 cm gummy and multiple gurnard. Must be a bit of a fish highway down there. I was after KGW so quite happy. Put potential dinner guests in the keepnet and sorted at the end of day. About the same amount of fish were thrown straight back as defo undersize. Kept 7 KGW around 28-30 mark returning about the same number undersize, plus 1 gurnard that had expired .Was keen to try gurnard on the plate and was not disappointed last night. Noticed the armada moored up opposite Nyerimilang but couldnt be bothered to move as already catching quite a few (admittedly undersize) fish and a few keeper KGW. Good sport on light gear and a sunny day!
