Matt Cini's quick Fishing Report - This month has been very different from most with the Victorian King George Whiting being hit and miss. Extra care needs to be taken in anchoring and bait selection. Fine tuning with your anchoring will make all the difference when targeting king George Whiting. One of the key factors is your bait selection. Squid is a very good bait, the way you choose to use it makes all the difference. I have found this month in Port Phillip Bay that Squid especially fresh with the time taken to tenderize until its soft and mushy. With the fresh smell of tasty calamari being sent out down current, it will be sure to get you a bite and a bag of good whiting in Port Phillip Bay in Winter!

Squid Fishing for the Fisho's Hot Tip Red Foils proving to be Outstanding on the Port Phillip Bay Squid this month and on darker or overcast days Black with a red foil under just dominating the DoJo!

Hayabusa Squid Jigs have been the Brand of choice out doing everything in their wake size is very important as they say LOL! size 3.0 with a tiny sinker set up as a paternoster will do the trick every time.

Anyone in search of BIG SQUID will have to act fast as they are coming on the bite now. These Squids are very different and will turn up any day and provide a lot of fun, both with baited jigs and size 4 to 4.5 Hayabusa jigs fished and worked very different to the standard way we fish for our local Port Phillip Bay Squid generally! We will fill you in with the results in the next report!

Another tip is to make sure you have the tools to suit the job. Crucis Egi Rod can be purchased from your local Tackle World Store, they will provide the action required to Entice the Squid to eat your Jig better yourself by using the correct tools for the job!
