The area around Prince George bank is pretty good. The drop off and out to 20 odd mt depth just look at your chart plotter for good looking contours and sound around. I have a Haines 650 called days like this you will find me most of this summer around portarlington

Cheers nude up. Nice boat the 650! I'll keep an eye out for you. As per the photo I put up, mine's a Bar Crusher 560c named Wildfish.
Had a good afternoon out today once the wind dropped off. The wife and I both bagged out on calamari in 2 hours just north of The Ozone wreck at Indented Head. That's the bait and a few feeds taken care of for a while.

A heads up for Clifton Springs boat ramp.
Many boats still getting bogged momentarily at the entrance, especially at low tide.
Here is one from Sunday, slow tide 0.3m

Thanks Pedro it's a real pity the entrance is so shallow it's a great facility. I am hoping the point Richards rd ramp is open soon that's my Local when down the bellarine, although I have had to get out and push very early one morning when I cut the corner

Hi Nude up. I just received an email from Bellarine Bayside to say that the Pt Richards ramp is open again as of today. It didn't state whether or not they'd done any dredging as part of the carpark project but I'm keen to hear so if you use it before I do next.
