Altona Snapper Fishing Report. The water temperature is still quite cold but early season Snapper Fishing is in full flight. Glenn Moss was fishing on his Hobie kayak anchored up 6 meters deep when he landed this beautiful 75cm snapper in Altona. It was caught using a paternoster rig and half pilchards as bait which were getting picked off by small pinkies. This was a rig created after watching one of the FishingMad rig videos. It’s a great catch from a kayak so well done Glenn. Great to see some early season snapper coming through with catches reported also around Williamstown, Werribee, Corio and Port Melbourne which is very pleasing.
