The Fishing Guru, Glenn Cooper who has a weekly fishing segment on the Breakfast Show every Tuesday at 7.15am was delighted to hand fishing competition winner Jason of Dromana a fishing trip with him on board the MV Plover, a charter boat run and owned by Sandra & Stuart of Bay Fish N Trips.
Jason said, “I’m just learning to fish and love fishing on Port Phillip Bay and know I will learn a lot from the man himself. I enjoy listening to Guru Glenn’s fishing segment on breakfast for a weekly local fishing report with lots of tips and information.”
Guru Glenn explains he’s the Fishing Guru because he puts so much time into fishing which is why he catches more snapper than other anglers from piers and land base. He added, “I also love to target whiting from rocks, salmon and ‘gummies’ – put it this way, I love catching anything that swims in water!” Guru Glenn also has a knack and love for teaching basic fishing skills from land base. “My tactics are ‘old school’, he said, fishing nearly everyday, rain, hail or shine from different piers, rocks and beaches,” he said. That’s why his nickname is the Fishing Guru!
Bay Fish N Trips operate fishing charters and private functions from Mornington Pier all year on the iconic MV Plover, a classic vessel built in 1942 by GM Holden. She has been a support vessel for the Australian Army and was even a ‘water/school bus’ at Paynesville. The 'darling' of the Morninting Pier has won many hearts.
The MV Plover has modern equipment & facilities, quality fishing gear & bait with plenty of space and shade. Bay Fish N Trips won a Victorian Small Business Award this week for their innovation and success.
