Portland kgw advice

Post by wishtofish » Wed Jan 13, 2021 11:37 am

Hey guys, I'm headed to Portland this weekend for a couple of days and want to try targeting some big kgw
I'll be landbased and just looking for some info into spots where I can target them, I'm planning to try and catch some squid in the area to use as bait.
Otherwise will use pipis.
Cheers

Hi wishtofish
Breakwall around 250m up - fish in between the weeds in the sandy areas.
I've caught up to 38cm in this area only 2 months ago on a visit

Just a quick report from the trip I made, ended up fishing off duttons way beach at night and did well catching 2 salmon at around 60cm and 2 and a half kilos each, heaps of pinkies as soon as the baits in the water but none were size as there were strong winds that would have been pushing the bigger ones out... still fun for only about 3 hours of fishing.. the weather was shocking most of the time I was down there but definitely beats fishing in Melbourne haha
