2018 April 25th Mud Island

If you can “just do it”. Mud island gummys are on fire. We left werribee around lunch time and went to mud island. We stopped between mud island and mussel farm in between 4 to 9m of water to drift for squid. We quickly got about 10 squid but quiet small. This time Shimano T14 saphire was most successful. The we went to sorento side of mud island where i got a mark in 12m of water. It was quiet to start and then it went off. We landed 2 nice gummy, lost 4. One Mima had it at the boat, i had it in the net, but i was on the phone, and she just spring shot out and snapped the leader. Funny enough at that time we had no gummy on the boat so i was thinking that i will be in big trouble as i copped the blame. Lucky me we landed few later on. Most of the action happend on the change of tide around 3pm. Then it stopped for little while and stared again. We released 4 pups, some of them where legal. All up we had hooked around 10 gummys. I do have to mention you do have to go thru few Banjos, port jacksons, eagle rays, gurnard, and flattys, but it is the part of fun. Water was superb, and quiet few boats where in the pinnacle channel, but they did leave early. At the ramp while we where cleaning the fish few people came over and the report is that salmon was going crazy around 12 just in front of werribee, few very small whitting came from spit wedge, and lots of squid around. Cheers and happy fishing. Happy fisherman
