Fishing Forecast

With the fishing forecast this week I'd like to begin by correcting and error last week.

Last week I incorrectly stated that Saturday the 14th is a New Moon.  This is not the case.  It's a waning crescent.

Tomorrow - Sunday the 14th of November is the New moon.

However - both days are in fact rated as excellent days for fishing. With Saturday through to Tuesday all being considered 5 star days.

Today - Saturday the 14th - the best fishing of the day was probably this morning at first light.  However, around midday - 12 to 2:15 pm being good.

Or get out between 7 and 8 pm.  This is a minor period, but it coincides with sunset.

Because of the new moon this week there should be plenty of fishing action to be had.

On Sunday the best times are 6 to 7 am.  8 to 9 pm and 1 to 3 pm.

Monday the 16th: 6:30 am to 7:30 am. 2:0 pm to 4:00 pm and 9:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

Tuesday you can try and get out around: 7:30 am to 8:30 am. 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and 10:30 pm to 11:30 pm.

After that, the forecasts are down during the week. From Wednesday to Friday when they start to improve again.

G'day!

I'm Dave, I live and fish in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
When it comes to fishing I love going out to land-based fishing spots, heading out in the tinny (aka an Aluminum Boat) and kayak fishing.

I've been fishing since I was a teen. Beginning way back in the 1970s. It was a hobby I picked up myself as my family certainly had no interest. Making me the black sheep! My favourite fish is Flathead and Snapper. Though I'm partial to Flake (Gummy Shark) and Calamari too! While I enjoy fishing for freshwater species like Redfin and Murray Cod I prefer eating saltwater species. They're just so mouth-wateringly tasty!

I love writing about some of my favourite Melbourne Fishing Spots while fishing around Victoria. As well as the tackle I use and test.
If you see me while you're out fishing say "G' day" - I'll be the one in a bush hat.

When I'm not fishing I'm working on my websites, such as Getfished, or writing computer software (my profession.)

I try to be as accurate as possible on this website. Most of the information is based on personal experience. However, if you spot an error or think there's something that I should add - no worries! Please use the Contact Form.
