Silver Trevally Fishing Reports from Victoria have tended to be more common from Westernport Bay and the South Eastern edge of Port Phillip Bay. With ocean beaches and estuaries being pretty equal with Westernport.

Often caught when targeting snapper and bream. It’s not unusual for fishers to catch them on bait or lures.

This species is prone to attack by the Tongue Eating Louse aka the “Doctor” (Cymothoa exigua.) Apart from the creep factor these parasites due not affect the quality of the flesh of the fish.

Scientific Name: Pseudocaranx spp.

Suggested Silver Trevally Tackle Options

According to current silver trevally fishing reports in 2022, compiled by Getfished, the most common lures being employed are:

Berkley 3 inch Power Bait Minnows, Soft Plastic Minnow, Soft Plastics , Turtkeback Worms, Zman Grubz.

Whereas silver trevally fishing reports for bait in 2022 are currently: Pipis.

Rigs are pretty much similar to those you’d choose for others species like pinky snapper, bream and flathead. Either a paternoster or a running sinker works very well.

Like always a berley trail is very important. When silver trevally is in the are the berley trail is the most effective way to bring them in towards your bait.
