Flinders and Sorrento weekend

Fished Sorrento in Port Phillip Bay on the Saturday just gone, was sad to say that we did not see anything worth taking photo's of but managed a bag of 20 squid without a struggle, all small squid from 25 to 30 cm hoods, surprising to see after a couple of weeks of some bigger versions. I tried to top it off with a trip to Flinders with the guys from That's Fishing TV but struggled to find anything at all worthwhile, we only got 3 squid and only about 25cm hood size, we worked the Flinders Reef area in Western Port for 5 hours losing heaps of gear along the way, at last count it was 9 Gan Craft egi-jya, 4 Gancraft ou-Jya, 4 megabass dartcrew UDSL, 4 Megabass Dartcrew 2.9 egi, 4 Yamashita Egi O Q Live, 4 Ecogear Fishleague Flash Max and 4 Evergreen's. A very expensive day on the water. That said I will be back for more punishment of my wallet very soon. Maybe it was the effect of the full moon or maybe it was simply the flogging they got from the public holiday, I have never seen so many boats in the area we were fishing. Was still great to get out with mates and enjoy the water.
