Well, all the planets aligned following the New Moon this week.
A high barometer reading around 1030, overcast conditions and a light southerly breeze. And the Australian Salmon didn't disappoint.
Spinning lures off the beach east of the Jetty towards the Mouth of Screw Creek produced fish to 60cm a couple of hours either side of the high tide. Blue bait patterns were the most successful pattern of lure.
Waders are a must as the tide starts to run out, you will need to walk out further to reach the school.
The schools of mullet are moving up the Tarwin River with the clean water. Land-based anglers fishing the incoming tide from the platforms are hooking fish to 40 cm. Berley is the secret. Small handfuls of bread crumbs will attract the mullet to your location. Best baits are pipi and pilchard fillets. Amongst the mullet, you will also find some trevally and from the rock wall down to the river mouth.pinkie to 35cm are also following the clean water up river.
An awesome week of fishing in Anderson Inlet. Only this Inlet can provide a variety of fish such as this in Victoria and being only just over an hours drive from the eastern suburbs.
King George Whiting to 38 cm inside the Inlet at Stevies Gutter on live bass yabbies and fresh pipi. Trevally to 40 cm through the channels from Mahers Landing to the mouth of the Tarwin River. Salmon are still around the entrance on the last of the incoming tide and mullet throughout the Inlet.
The Snapper have well and truly entered Anderson Inlet. An unusual 2 kg fish was taken from the Inverloch Jetty late last week and further reports from boats of 3kg fish taken from the bottom of the Horseshoe at Doyles Rd. Best baits Us Squid, whole pilchards and trevally fillets.
Salmon schools are taking metal lures (pearl the best color) at the mouth of the Inlet on the last two hours of the run in tide.
