Getting clothing right for sessions on the water can be difficult, this is especially true for Victorian winter, with a lot of paddlers opting to put their kayaks away until the sun comes out again. There is plenty of great fishing to be had down south over winter, with monster whiting and squid in Western Port as well as the usual quality flake. There are always some solid flatties available in North PPB until June not to mention trout in the fresh and not forgetting the tuna down at Portland. Water temperatures plummet however and hypothermia is a real threat if you do go for an unplanned swim but with the right clothing and under layers your kayak doesn't have to lie in the shed gathering dust through the cooler months. So get into the right gear and fish right through the year.
