Phillip Island Kayaking Grand Final Weekend

Postby fishmagnet » Mon Aug 29, 2016 12:15 pm

Hey guys, I'll be based down at cowes for the grand final weekend and was planning on taking the yak out for a couple of sessions. Was just wanting to know if someone could offer some advice to kayak fishing down there. Happy to travel to other places around the island. Also preferably a place with a lighter current. Don't care what species I target, just so long as I can get out for a fish safe enough. Cheers! :water:

Cleeland bight, pretty sheltered and plenty of fish. Should be some huge squid around then. Current can run hard through there and kick up some standing waves but you're never far from land if it gets too much for you
2015/16 Species comp total: 289cm
Brown Trout: 37cm
Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm

I'm guessing you haven't used the kayak much and from memory you picked up an outback

first around Cowes the flow rips along a bit - if you are looking for some lighter flow areas - Dickies Bay behind the San Remo Police station
you can launch between the S/Remo Pier and bridge if the tide is up -
back off the Island Coronet Bay at the end off Cuddy Sark rd - Reef Island off the end of Bluff Rd Bass - or a Bass River Launch from the end of Bass Landing Rd and paddle out the mouth

all of these areas have light tide flows and produce fish - I'd probably be down around these places myself by last september but I think that W/E we are off chasing Kings a Pt Augusta

so hope that is some help
