I’m down at the Island at the moment...went out yesterday & loaded up with Flathead & gummy (launched from Rhyll and fished an hour each side of low tide at middle spit)
Today is going to be perfect (tide change at midday)
Hang on, you caught something?

Oh and as for tips... Westernport can be tough to
Navigate but don’t be scared off... just follow your chart plotter and use common sense and you will be fine.

On the plus side of it being hard to navigate, generally the channels and structures are great highways for travelling and migrating fish. Unlike PPB where it’s more of a big pond and can be harder to locate fish.
