BEST BAITS AND LURES
Squid jigs, Pilchard, Mussels. fresh squid. I have also fished very well here using a range of 3 inch and 4 inch soft plastics. Particularly minnow style, grub style and curl tails. Just bouncing them of the bottom and pausing then continually repeating the process.
This might be a great spot to take a general purpose rod. Something between 7 to 8 foot in a 3 to 5 kilo class allowing you to quickly change rigs and baits. How several anglers they will be specifically targeting squid particularly in the colder months, for this an light 8 foot egi rod is an ideal setup.
MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES
Anytime of the day is fine, however dawn and dusk can be more active
Not really the best place for the kids. They can play on the sand but there isn’t much to do in the immediate area. You would be much better taking the kids a little further up to the Werribee beach which has playgrounds, toilet facilities and better beach areas.
Toad fish ( puffer ) and banjos are quite common in this area, which are more often a pest opposed to a danger.
