Portarlington Pier

Post by scanny » Sun Aug 02, 2020 1:15 am

Went back to Portarlington last night for a dabble. Slow night but Barracudas were going crazy at the end of the pier. I ended up catching three roughly the same size, 40 cm.

Should’ve mentioned in the original post: all caught with turtleback worms. Tried a fresh pillies, squid and grub plastics. Got hits straight from the get-go after changing to SP worms.

Snapper bait? Also nice fish but not very good eating in my opinion

They’re tasty in beer batter but yes lots of bones!
