Port Phillip Bay is one of the largest inland seas in the Southern Hemisphere. Connected to Bass Straight and the associated Southern Ocean. This beautiful bay operates, as far as fish species are concerned, like a giant estuary. That means the fish we like to catch, such as snapper and whiting, migrate into the bay for breeding during the summer months.
Nearly the entire shoreline of the bay encompasses the city of Melbourne and it’s bayside suburbs. Including the regional city of Geelong.
