Water temp rising

What a mixed week of weather we have had here in Lakes Entrance, but never the less we got two fishing charters in this week with plenty of pinky, snapper and mowong and the odd Flathead.

Heading offshore from Lakes Entrance, around dawn on both charters, the fishing was mixed. On the first one we just headed out to the eight mile reef and caught a good bag of pinky's and a couple of mowong, we worked the offshore reefs in the area and ended up with a good feed of fish for everybody to take home some of the passengers have commented on my face book page. (check it out).

The second offshore charter trip I asked the charter if they wanted to risk half the day heading down the coast in the search for a gummy shark or big snapper, and they said lets give it a go.

So we went down the pipeline with great ambitions of catching the big red or maybe a gummy shark or two, but the water temp is only 13 degrees and we gave it go for a few hours with no luck, so back to the reef, where i know there are fish ... and there were.

With 20km travel time under our belts we got back to where we caught fish on the first offshore fishing charter, and the crew caught a good feed to take home, so not all was lost.

The water temperature is rising every week and the phone is starting to ring so if you want to try your luck in November for an offshore fishing charter, best you book now to avoid disappointment. Call me on 0428 401 819 to book your Offshore Charter, or even give your best mate a gift voucher.

Well until next time - Captain Tony.
