It all started a few years ago when a small number of King George Whiting were caught in Georges Bay on a few different occasions. We didn’t think too much of it at the time as lots of different species turn up in the bay quite often, some continue to be caught and some come and go. But we kept our eye on it, monitored catch rates and anecdotal evidence over the next few years and found that all of a sudden there were more and more fish being seen. Before you know it we have now had a regular King George Whiting season for about 4 solid years and hopefully will now be another permanent species to add to the ever growing list that is caught out of St Helens . Some would say that King George Whiting are the perfect fish, they fight hard and are great sport, are a fantastic table fish, require minimal equipment, can be caught by all ages and with a little bit of knowledge and know how are not difficult to catch.

I met my friend John and his junior angler @ Foursey today, keen to break my recent “Trout drought”. By lunchtime Lachlan had landed one, John had dropped one, and I’d had just one hit but no hookup. My companions had to leave early afternoon, but I stayed on.

Wondering if there was a market for slightly used trout licenses, and promising my next trip would be for bream, or flathead, or squid, I finally hooked and landed a good fat ‘bow. Happy that I had dinner, I headed back to the ramp, trolling a couple of lures as I do, when a nice brown decided to jump onto my lure too!

My PB brown, and my best (non-stockie) rainbow, both in one day. Stoked!
