GOLF MONTH | OCTOBER
October is Golf Month!
Phillip Island Golf has thrown open its doors for
Golf Month - a national campaign that encourages
people to get into golf.
Golf lovers and those just curious are invited to
join Golf Month around Australia this October.
There will be something to suit everyone at a
nearby club or facility, from those who have never
had a swing and those who would like to get more
involved to those who simply want to share the
game with their friends and family.
Backed by the golf industry and promoted by a
national marketing campaign, Golf Month 2016
enables clubs and facilities around the country to
re-engage with lapsed golfers, get new people into the game and promote the
benefits of golf club membership.
There is the opportunity for golf enthusiasts of all levels to benefit from great offers
and activities. For participants in Golf Month and club members who introduce a
new member to their club, there is a chance to win the 'ultimate 2017 ISPS Handa
Women's Australian Open experience,' including a place in the Pro-Am.
Club Professional Marcus Liberman said Phillip Island Golf Club was “delighted to
participate in Golf Month.”
“Golf is a game for life and we want to showcase the health, social and community
benefits that the game offers,” Marcus said.

BOATING customers still didn’t get a good
run with the weather this week and opportuni-
ties were very limited but those who did take
advantage went home with a feed of fish.
There were good numbers of land-based an-
glers this week and some quality fish, espe -
cially snapper, caught.
A few people also headed to the rivers, Bass
and Powlett, to give it a try out of the wind.
Saturday was the best of the days and a lot
of people took advantage of it and dragged the
boats out of the shed.
It never surprises me the number of people
that park the boat in the shed in the autumn
and the next time they do anything to it is on
the boat ramp in the spring, then wonder why
it won’t start or things are missing out of it.
Five minutes of checking at home can stop
a lot of grief at the ramp and make it a much
better day on the water.
Cowes and Newhaven jetty was the place to
be for those looking for a land based snapper
this week. Cowes was the better with some
quality snapper reported especially from the
last of the run in tide producing three snap -
per all over 5kg, caught by some local Cowes
There were a few others reported during the
week but only one at a time and not quite as
big. Customers also reported a few calamari,
small salmon and plenty of other rubbish.
The jetty at Newhaven produced a few good
snapper as well but nothing quite as big as
The snapper we saw from Newhaven was
closer to the 2 kg mark and caught almost op -
posite to Cowes with the majority on the last of
the run out tide.
There wasn’t a lot of other keeper fish from
Newhaven reported with the odd salmon,
and trevally but there was plenty of rays and
wrasse there to steal your baits.
Calamari was the catch from San Remo jetty
but this week the sizes were all over the place,
mostly small and not a lot that would have
gone over 1kg.
There were some as small as the jigs that
people were using and only the odd bigger one.
We also had reports from several spots on
the jetty and not just the normal shallow area
on the left which was a bit of a surprise with
the bay as dirty as it was.
Not a lot of reports from the beach anglers
this week chasing calamari because of the
winds, making it difficult to cast out but there
was a lot of weed around as well fouling up
The boats, when they could get out, fared
better as they were able to find a cleaner area
of water to fish.
The calamari caught in the boats were better
in size and a few nudging the 2kg mark were
reported. Reports came from several places
with Cleeland Bight the best but the odd re-
port from Dickies Bay, Reef Island area and
over at Tortoise Head.
Baited jigs were okay but with more people
using artificial jigs more reports came from
those using them.
Red bodied and red/black cloth were popu-
lar colours as well as the ever reliable white
but several people also had success on orange,
pink and purple.
Whiting numbers have continued to improve
despite the limited opportunities and several
customers have reported bagging out recently.
Those who have reported good numbers
have said the whiting haven’t just jumped into
the boat and they have had to put in several
hours to get their fish.
Although they have not given away too many
secrets, a common theme has been plenty of
time on the water, be prepared to drive around
to find the fish and fish the tide changes.
Be set up to fish deep or shallow and spend
time to find some fresh calamari for bait.
Cleeland Bight has been the best area on
both sides of the channel, depending on the
swell offshore. The best time has been either
tide and that hour both sides of the change.
Some of the successful customers have told
me they were fishing the changes in the bight
then spending the mid tide fishing around
Dickies Bay, Maggie Shoal and Reef Island,
only spending a short time in each spot then
moving a few 100m.
Another thing that was common was berley,
but only something that puts out more of an
oil slick than large pieces of berley.
Most also said that you need to be patient
and put up with toadies and leatherjackets un-
til the whiting show up.
Snapper from the boats is ramping up and
each week we are getting more reports.
It also helps having more boats on the water
The reports are still all over the place and
the fish are spread out in smaller schools but
the signs are there for a good season.
The reports we received this week, probably
due to the weather, came from the more pro -
tected areas and limited times with tide and
wind, the channel against the island between
Tortoise and Elizabeth which is protected
from the northerly or when fishing with tide
There have only been a couple of reports
from below the bridge in Cleeland Bight and
those fishing for snapper are finding plenty of
draughtboard sharks and rays.
