St Kilda Pier Fishing on a warm summers night was how I started targetting flathead and pinkies as a teenager.
St Kilda Pier has seen some pretty major modifications in the decades since then.
It’s still a major icon on Port Phillip Bay and is rich in history. Going back to 1853!
The addition of a rock wall and the harbour adjoining it significantly altered the longshore drift.
That’s to say – the currents that deposit sand and influence fish feeding opportunities.
It seems to have been a positive – particularly for flathead.
