salmon in the surf

Post by Matthew drako » Sun May 02, 2021 9:39 pm

With the cooler weather starting to settle in, it's almost time to start hitting the surf beaches again. probably my favourite form of fishing. Have been noticing an array of salmon in port phillip bay recently(last 3 trips been a bust up to some extent) so was wondering whether the salmon have entered the gutters around some of the surf beaches. trying to decide which direction to go(west or east) between jan juc and gunamatta at the moment so was wondering if anyone had done any good there. regardless, will be heading out next week with thursday looking like the best day for it.tough decision deciding between the 2, would love to get down the 90 mile where this time 2 years ago (would've loved to go last year but covid🥲) we got well over 60 salmon 1-3kg in 3 proper days fishing. can't get down there now but planning to in the next month or 2. thanks anyway for the help. also wouldn't mind a few mullet if they're around as well. amazing eating off the surf beaches.

I reckon ill hit gunnamatta actually on first light friday, a light easterly, fish the last hour of the run in then fish a few hours of the runout and see what happens drowning some bait for the first few hours then probably pack the car then tie a metal on and spin for an hour or so.
