Calamari Fishing Reports. Hang on…
Squid or Calamari? Who cares! I love ’em. You love ’em. We’re agreed.
Now, where are they?
Plus – you can fish for them for most of the year. Especially if water conditions are reasonably clear.
Dusk and Dawn are perfect times for squid fishing.

I know I love hearing about the latest Squid Fishing Reports. I reckon if you’re on this page it’s a fair bet you do too.
Squid are not only abundant they are fantastic to eat.
Reasonably easy to catch – with some experimentation.
Plus they make fantastic bait for many Victorian saltwater species. Including snapper and gummy sharks.
Victorian Squid Fishing Season: All Year Round. Best at dawn and dusk. More prolific when waters are clear and not silted up by freshwater runoff from rivers and creeks.
While Squid can be found right the way along the Victorian coastline I have found the major bays and inlets to be the most productive. Locally to Melbourne, these are Port Phillip and Westernport Bay.

Recommended Squid Fishing Tackle
When it comes to squid jigs you really do get what you pay for.
While some cheapies catch squid the problem is durability. They have a habit of falling apart as you use them.
There are some great brands. They’re a little dearer. But they last and I’ve found them to be superior at catching squid.
Recently I’ve been using Daiwa Emeraldas Nude Squid Jigs.
While I’ve had success with the more traditional lumo colours.
I’ve found darkest colour combinations are often more effective inside Port Phillip Bay.
Darker foils (such as reds) do extremely well, too.
