Phillip Island suggestions

Post by The Professor » Wed Jan 05, 2022 7:56 am

Hi all

Heading to Phillip Island next week. I'm an inexperienced fisher and have never fished the island. Current set-up is a 2.45m rod, 4-6kg, and reel size is (line capacity kg/m): 5/350, 6/310, 8/220. Would love to hear suggestions for best land-based spots or any recent positive experiences.

Many thanks
The Professor

Try Silverleaves area after dark for some whiting off the beach.

I'd suggest Cat Bay area at night for gummies if you can dodge the park rangers other spots are off the rocks for whiting off pyramids or racetracks.
Team CBFt does it again...
