Cowes jetty, Newhaven jetty and even San
Remo jetty were producing snapper. From the
reports Cowes was better on the change of
the high tide with Newhaven side best on the
change of the low. We had a few reported from
Punch Bowl and several from the beach in
Cleeland Bight with outside the caravan park
and in front of the sand hill the better spots.
I even had a report of a small pinkie caught
off the surf beach at Woolamai.
Let’s hope the fish continue for the land
based fishermen but remember when it is
busy on the jetty a bit of courtesy goes a long
way, ensure the sinkers you are using are big
enough and if someone hooks a big fish do
what you can to assist them, it might be you
next time that needs a net to land a fish.
Calamari were probably the most inconsis-
tent of the reports this week with so much
weed in the water at time it was like your jig
was magnet attracting the grass as soon as it
touched the water.
Plenty of reports came in but I would have
expected a few more than what we got and the
reports really only came from those who had
fished a lot for calamari and understood that
weed on the jig decreased your chances
considerably. There were plenty of new com-
ers to the calamari fishery but it was a very
difficult for them, especially if others didn’t
explain the advantage of keeping the weed off
The best of the reports came from the boats
who were able to find a small patch of clean
water. The thing that didn’t alter for both
land and boat was the quality of the calamari
was excellent this week. The normal spots all
worked at some stage and a mixture of baited
and artificial. The colour of the artificial as
usual varied but the stable colours of White,
Red and Orange accounted for most.
Whiting reports have continued to steadily
increase and we have seen some quality that
is as good as we have seen in our time in the
We have always seen a box of fish that con-
tains a quality one in length or weight but not
like it is at the moment where the one that
stands out in a box of whiting is a normal size
one. It has taken the best part of 10 years to
convince customers to use pilchard for whit-
ing but it is finally starting to pay off and for
those who are trying the pilchard fillet they are
finding bigger fish, less rubbish like toadies
and best of all cheaper with several baits out of
each pilchard. It is a soft bait, but so is pippi
but don’t salt it trying to toughen it up a bit as
the feedback we get is it doesn’t work.
Also, don’t cut up too many in advance as
you will get far better results if you actually
fillet the pilchard then straight onto the hook.
The other trick is don’t put little tiny pieces on
the hook use a reasonable size bait an aver-
age size pilchard fillet will give you about four
baits. We also have a couple of reports from
land based anglers on the beach in Cleeland
Bight, not many fish and no one with more
than one but good size.
I keep getting asked why I haven’t expand-
ed my report out to include the area around
Wonthaggi, Inverloch. The answer is simple;
nothing is being sent through making it very
difficult to put anything in the report. Alan was
able to spend time making calls to get reports
from these areas unfortunately I don’t have the
same spare time to make those calls so I need
to relay on people calling me.
Maybe there is someone that has the time to
make the calls to chase up reports and would
like to give writing the weekly report a go. If
you think you could organise this around the
Wonthaggi area give me a call and I will put you
in touch with the right person.
The fishing’s just fine
This was the very first snapper caught by
Bec, and a perfect eating size at that.
Day off, perfect weather and a personal
best 57cm perch, doesn’t get a lot better.
Cricket’s off to
a good start
After what seemed to be four
inches of rain falling in the
lead up to last week’s match
against the loveable Outtrim
lads, the boys hit the beauty
their weekend off.
It had immediate impact
with the island posting a sea-
son high total of 183 off 40
overs against Leongatha Town,
with contributions from new
recruit Mitch Kinghorn smash-
ing the ball around the park
for a quality 57 before running
himself out for the third time
for the club from just three
Mitch got together with the
boisterous Jack Keating whom
continues to impress on and
most definitely off the field,
making a well compiled 32 be-
fore picking out the most ca-
pable town fielder.
Along with Keats, Eli ‘Re-
construction’ Richards who
is back from LARS surgery
looked comfortable both with
batting technique and with the
tight perm he has been wear-
ing about Cowes, matching
Jack with 32 to his name also.
The team took control of the
bowling for what seemed to be
most of the innings apart from
another duck from Jarrod
Black whom simply walked
from the ground and told the
boys “such is life”, a quote
that resembles two Australian
icons that he tries to emulate
with both appearance and
So with 183 on the board the
boys had a real belief if they
could get out the top Town
batsmen out they would be a
chance to chalk the first win of
Opening the bowling with
Jack Cox, who is getting ever
closer to making his first team
breakfast of the year, being
sighted just six metres from
the destination but failing to
arrive, bowled with great varia-
tion grabbing himself 3/24 off
Coxy was backed up by Geoff
Odgers who had figures of 1/42
off eight overs.
Leonardo also attempted
to sink the Leongatha Titanic
once again by picking up his
first wicket of the year and re-
assuring the players that you
would never have fitted more
than one Town batsmen on the
However it was Richards
who stole the show in the field,
getting run-outs, catches and
bowling tighter than his updo.
With everyone putting in 100
per cent, the pressure was
right on the opposition, how-
ever as discussed it was the
colossal wicket of Ratnaike
which they could not seem to
snare which cost them 87 runs
with four sixes and saw the is-
land go down by two overs.
The boys held their head
high knowing that they are
building and that the two day
cricket is where they will come
to the fore.
C takes to the field
Finally C1 got to take to
the field for their first game
of the season against OMK at
OMK won the toss and elect-
ed to bat and on a quickish
outfield, they scored freely.
Huck Cleeland claimed the
first wicket, clean bowling the
opener Busana and Pete Fran-
cis succeeded in stumping
McKinnon shortly after.
OMK were 2/76 at drinks and
continued to amount the runs.
First gamer Brad Fullarton
chimed in with three wickets
in the back half of the innings
and Matt Fletcher was chasing
everything down in the field
with unbridled enthusiasm.
A formidable target of 234
had been set.
The Sharks started the
chase admirably against some
tight bowling before Mark
Christopher (6) was trapped
LBW. Gary Grace contributed
eight after a sharp caught and
Huck Cleeland slowly con-
structed an intelligent innings,
a great lesson for young play-
ers, with some trademark
lusty blows and classic driv-
ing. Alas, the required run rate
was increasing and with the
field well set back, penetrating
stroke making was required.
Pete Francis (20), Mick
Cleary (14), and Pete Cleary
(23no) complemented Clee-
land’s 88 before he had to re-
tire with cramp.
A commendable total of 184
was reached, against a quality
opposition, which will form
a good base for the weeks
ahead, solid in the knowledge
of where the benchmark is!
On Saturday the boys trav-
elled to Bass to take on Kilcun-
da-Bass. Captain for the day,
Brady Ross, won the toss and
chose to have a bat due to the
Josh Cichowski and Dylan
Susic “volunteered” to open
the batting and did well against
some good bowling.
Brady and Liam Dayson
both batted well and were both
retired with Liam making a
good 12no with some great cut
shots in his innings.
Max Carpi and Ben Taylor
combined to put on some runs
with Max retiring on 15no.
Ky Kleeven and Oscar Kenter
batted well with Oscar retiring
Tyce Kleverkamp and Noah
Jeronimo had to face the open-
ing bowlers at the end and did
well with Noah finishing on
Special mention for Brayden
Kleverkamp who decided to
commit to play this season
five minutes prior to start time
and in his first ever innings of
cricket had the misfortune to
make a golden duck.
After an inspiring address
from their coach the boys
took to the field. All the boys
bowled and fielded well with
lots of talk and encouragement
Max took a good catch, with
Josh and Brady taking a wick-
