St Kilda Pier has seen some pretty major modifications in the last 20 years. It's still a major icon on Port Phillip Bay and is rich in history.

The addition of a rock wall and the harbour adjoining it significantly altered the long shore drift and hence how the waves and tidal flows operate in the immediate area.

However, fishing the rock wall offers all the advantages of the old pier. Access to the open and relatively deeper waters.

If I was to sum St Kilda Pier up in a single fish species - it'd be flathead. I've caught numerous "lizards" off the old pier over the years. While it's been many years since I've fished it, other fisho's seem to be experiencing the same thing. Flathead!

Bait wise I always found frozen white-bait (fish) fished whole on a running sinker or a paternoster to work well. However I've also used prawns effectively too.

Soft plastics seem to be working great if the fishing forums and Youtube videos are anything to go by. Just make sure you use the bait or lure that matches the preferences of the target species you're aiming for.
