Land-Based Snapper Inverloch Beaches 10th November 2016

10 Nov 2016

With a fine break in the weather and an increase in the water temperature, the fishing and variety of fish has greatly improved.

From the beaches at Inverloch, Snapper to 78cm and Gummy Shark to a metre have been taken from the beaches after dark.

Last year the Snapper entered the Inlet around mid October, but this year it is all happening a month later. But the rewards have been outstanding. Alfie (pictured) used up all his leave passes to fish the nightime off the Inverloch Beaches.

The first night resulted in small gummies, good sized pinkies and a 72cm Snapper. And the next night he achieved a landbased PB with a 78cm Snapper.

Now is the time to start to target the Snapper on the eastern side Mahers Landing both land based and from kayaks and boats.

Trevally are still abundent along the Inverloch Beaches and with some continuing warmer weather, the weedbeds will start to produce better sized whiting and squid. Good sized flathead to 45cm are taking soft plastics on the run out tide.

Estuary Perch and Bream to 40cm are taking live crab and bass yabbies on the run out tide in Screw Creek.

Happy Fishing and Role on Summer!
