It was with great pleasure I had the oppotunity to be involved with the residents of Rose Lodge Wonthaggi fishing the Tarwin River Boat Ramp yesterday. Local anglers, Ian and Allan had pumped bass yabbies at the mouth of Screw Creek on Tuesday afternoon. Live bait, an incoming tide and favourable weather conditions. Awesome! Now the pressure was on to catch some fish for the residents bi-annual fishing adventure,

The comment from many anglers fishing the Tarwin River is..."There isn't a quality fish to be Caught!" Well, if you fish the right time with the right bait or lure, there is quality fish to be caught! This 35cm Bream (weighing 950gram) was taken today, landbased fishing on the rising tide between the boat ramp and the highway bridge. The lure was the Atomic Crank 38 Double Deep in Muddy Prawn. Sight fishing at it's best. Just ask Rhiannon at our store 56743322.

An email from Judith Strachan   Hi Guys, My next claim to fame! Caught in the inlet from my Hobie Outback, just out from the angling club with my terrific new rod ( great advice Mick) and a soft plastic! The water was so clear ( Sunday) that I watched it chasing the plastic then caught it, as I was reeling it in it got off but with a quick peddle I was right in its face again with my bait and wham... made a very nice tea! Go the Hobies!   From Judith Strachan

 We have leave-passes, so Shane and I are going to take the Hobie Revolution 13's out and fish the mouth of the Tarwin River and in the bottom reaches of Anderson Inlet. The weather is perfect but the tides are not ideal. (I prefer to fish the top of the tide running out for Estuary Perch). We launch and depart the the rockwall on the Tarwin just after 7.30am and pedal down river towards the mouth. We troll blades as we pedal. The tide is low and many of the usual snags are above the water line.

A great low tide view of Anderson Inlet from the air shows why Anderson Inlet is becoming a Kayak Anglers Paradise. And only 90 minutes from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Quality fish such as King George Whiting, Estuary Perch, Bream, Flathead are major species targeted by Kayak Anglers. The variety of soft and hard lures available creates opportunities for all anglers to experience fishing for species that they don't normally target.

This east wind is not good for fishing in Anderson Inlet at the moment. The wind will drop off Sunday (full moon). Awesome, a night fish at Mahers Landing or Venus Bay Surf Beach after is on the cards. But in the meantime, let's go sailing in the Hobie Adventure and Tandem Island..................

The salmon schools continue to move up and down the Inlet with the tides. Fish up to 2 kg have been taken. Local Neil, fishing from his Hobie Oasis (picture) landed a good catch of salmon. You may refer to his comments about his trip in our original report on 18th February 2013. James fishing from the Adventure Island, with his son Jasper sitting on the trampolines had a great time when the salmon busted up around them.

An unseasonal run of Salmon have entered both Anderson Inlet and Shallow Inlet. Reaching as far up the inlet as Mahers Landing, fish to 1.2 kg) are taking baits and lures. You can have a crack at them land-based, from a boat or a kayak. At Shallow Inlet, slightly smaller in size with trolling from a boat the best option. The question is, why at this time of year? As both inlets have had a good run of prawns, we believe suggested they may have followed them in.

What a week of east winds! So you want to fish and get out of the wind....where do I fish? Tarwin River...whether it be land-based, from your kayak or boat, you will find protection heading up river from the Tarwin Boat ramp. From the fishing platforms, you can target mullet, trevally amd small salmon on the incoming tide using pipi, worm or white-bait. As the tide turns, use live bass yabbies in close to the bank to target Estuary Perch. Kayakers push up stream with the tide past the bridge and drift back  with the run-out tide spinning your favourite vibe, soft plastic or hard lure. Squidgee Wriggler in bloodworm an essential to have in your lure box.

Mac and his dad, Bruce fished the annual Aqua Cup at Lake Tyers. This competition they love. The fishing, the friendships and it is a family friendly social event. And they catch and release great fish! Those who visited the Inverloch Store over the holiday period would have met Mac and been treated to his enthusiasm for quality fishing tackle and passing on his knowledge and techniques.. Here is Mac's Report.   15th annual AQUACUP fishing competition held at Lake Tyers on Sat 9 February.
