  1. G'day Larry & welcome. Vincent has a very, very short jetty, maybe 10 metres at low tide, popular with kids. The wharf runs parallel to the water & is a popular spot for the kids, oldies & jumpers, a few crabs & lots of trumpeters. Decent amount of squid at times on a late high tide. There are squid, snook, small salmon, flatties etc from the breakwater in & out of the marina. The local gar guys walk out on the spit at low tide & seem to do well, make sure you wear something on your feet as the Razor fish will cut them to pieces, old runners are fine. The back beach usually has good sized YFW & the odd flattie, clickers are the best local bait but worms would be good also. The bay in front of the caravan park steps produces all of the above plus mullet. Raking for crabs on the back beach or in the bay Sth of the marina, again wear some footwear. That should get you started.
  2. I will start by saying that i have never caught a metro YFW but......................................... have caught a few at Pt Vincent I generally catch & use the nippers same day but I guess if you keep em well they'll be ok. So, low tide to collect then fish the run in tide almost straight away, running ball sinker, # 4 or # 6 long shank hook. I walk back in with the tide until the bite stops. I've seen folk @ Seacliff catching at both low & high tide, the tides aren't bad tomorrow so I'd try Seacliff around the low. Hope this helps & let us know how you go
  3. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-16/gippsland-lakes-commercial-fishing-ban/11606266 It proves what can be done with a little Government determination. Obviously not everyone is happy but the majority are the winners. Perhaps our mob could take a leaf out of their book? The compo packages seem generous enough, wouldn't have thought that to many pros were making big money in the area. (not sure why the link isnt blue?)
  4. Cheers Softy. Might have to head to the Wheaty to celebrate This is the scientific method i used for my guesses
  5. Woohoo how bout dat thanks to Savage Tackle & Strike & Hook for putting the comp on
  6. After watching doobies vids I think the secret is to be a spotty teenager (no offence meant guys, great vids )

  9. I hope you get better soon, I hear Vertigo can be a bastaard of a thing. Havent had a chance to try out any of the advice, feeling a bit better but the cold air sets me off so patiently I wait
