With the Easter long weekend I decided I was going to have a crack at one of the days but was being put off by how bad the boat ramps can be on public holidays.
We left in the early hours with the idea of going right down to the bottom of Western Port in search of some bigger models in one of my usual haunts. When we launched the boat the water was still rising on the high tide and I made my way down to the southern area of Western Port. As we got closer we noticed a stiff SW blowing but with the incoming tide things were not too bad. We punched through the rougher stuff and got to my normal haunt and started casting, it was still dark so I could not see the condition of the water. About and hour and a half later the sun had stuck its head out of the clouds and the water was like coffee. A quick decision to head over to Flinders was made.
Now the pattern was clear we decided to make our move after the last breaker that came across from the
Moving into stoney point we put the past 4 hours behind us and just started up a nice drift, water again was dirty but I knew that no matter where I was unless I did another 35 ish kilometers I would not find any clear water on this day. Picked a few dirty water jigs and started the casting procession. It did not take too long before we started to smack the squid, lots of other boats drifting in the area not doing so well. Folks if you are in dirty water the nicest presented natural jig will be hard for a squid to see so brighten it up a bit.
All jokes aside its a timely reminder that the part of Western port I was fishing can be very dangerous, unless you are very confident the weather will not change or you are 100% confident with your vessel in all weather conditions do not take the place lightly, it will suck you up and spit you out again and yes people have died there, some places deserve some respect and this is one of them.
