Paul Worsteling's Tackleworld Cranbourne opened in August 1988. At that stage I was 15 and worked part time in the store. I used to ride my BMX to work to earn a bit of pocket money to support my habit! Fishing that is. When I was 22 years old I bought the business and still actively work at the store and run it with a hands on approach today. Over the last 20 years we have grown into on of the best tackle stores in the country helped along by my media exposure on Rex Hunt's Fishing Adventures and IFISH, and of course the buying power and exposure of Tackleworld. We may be big in size, but we continue to excel because of our old fashion service and values. We try to treat every customer like they are our only customer, and strive to do all in our power to see them achieve their goal of catching a fish. Our specialty is Western port and port Phillip Bay but our staff have fished almost all of Australia and a lot of the world and racked up almost every species of fish that I can think of between them. So regardless of where you are heading, or what species you intend to target, we can give you GREAT advice based on REAL experiences. If you love fishing, then you will love Tackleworld Cranbourne for it's awesome range and committed staff. There is an old saying that you would have heard ....... "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime", we aim to feed your fishing habit for a lifetime by not just selling you tackle, but actually spending the time to teach you how to get the most out of it. Yours in fishing, Paul Worsteling

Paul Worsteling and his wife Cristy moved to the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria looking for a sea change and a better lifestyle after the birth of their son Jet Reef in 2007. The area offered everything they could hope for as a fishing mad family, except a dedicated tackle store In August 2013 all of this changed when they opened Paul Worsteling's Tackle World Mornington on one of the major thoroughfares in and out of this booming seaside village.
The store sprawls over 500 square meters and has a great homely feel, similar to their flagship store at Cranbourne that the couple have worked in since 1989. It caters for anglers at every stage of the fishing spectrum with the best brands and quality service guaranteed. The store has a focus on salt water fishing for species such as snapper, gummy sharks, whiting, calamari and flathead in both Port Phillip Bay and Western Port. They also have an extensive fresh water section with a focus on trout in the nearby Devil Bend Reservoir and surrounding rivers. In saying that, they also carry a huge range of spinner baits and hardbody cod and native lures. And if its big fish you are chasing, they have that covered too. From giant GT's to marlin, tuna and sharks, they have the gear and advice to point you in the right direction.
If you like to get in the water, the team can help you there too. Catering for the growing water sports market.
The team at Tackle World Mornington pride themselves on innovation on all angling fronts and get no greater joy than helping you catch fish.

(450 Sq. Metres of Hunting, Fishing and Archery Paradise)
Next to the well-known landmark “Fitzpatrick’s Home Hardware”
Bait's including Medium Yabbies or cooked Yabby tails , Good bunch of worms with a schrimp on as well , Bardie Grubs Frozen or fresh .Lures include Hard Bodies , Spinner Baits , Mumbblers and Surface Lures
Bait's are usually best coming out of winter when the yabbies come out of the mud , rig these using a running sinker a drift baits from upstream of structure down into the haeds of fallen trees and the like . Scents also work very well on baits . The use of a stocking type sock's on frozen Bardy Grubs stops Bream from sucking the guts out of them and last a lot longer . Hard Boby Lures are ideal for trolling at slow speed and casting into sructure as you would Barra . A slow constant retreive rather than a twitching action works best and keep them at a slow speed . Spinner baits are ideal for eighter dropping right next to big log's or cast and retreived past any structure , Log's , Stumps or fallen timber . Sureface lures work well in the warmer months and even work well on those moonless nights .
Yellow Belly (Golden Perch)
All year round but starts around August when the days warm up through to May
Scrub Worms are one of the best baits as well as Yabbies 50 mm long , Schrimp are a good add on to these baits . Lures include Hard Bodies Med size like the Strada Ambush colors yellow and purple , Bibless lures like jackall's , shudder , and anything around 55 mm that swims well , Small framed Spinner baits built specially for the job and in natural colors and Soft Plastic's worked across the bottom of shallow lakes and scented
Use a size 2 bait holder hook and load it to the Max with Bait . Cast under or into Timber on the upstream side and add a little Freshwater Stimulate liquid scent . Use a running sinker rig and Only put as much weight on to hold bottom and if they really touchy leave your bail arm open with rod tip pointed toward bait to give no resistance when fish picks the bait up . coming out of Winter fish the shallow edges in around 1 mt of water because this is where the water is warmer and the natural bait is sitting . Lures in creeks and rivers are best used along the edge of the bank where there is under bank erosion . this is where a lot of fish sit . Structure like Timber is always worth a shot as well . Yellow Belly will sit mid depth in Deeper Lakes in the top of trees and on rocky drop off's . Shallow lakes are best when there is water flow as a result of irrigation and around drop bars and water restrictors , colors Natural , Yellow , Purple and White / Black
All year round , even in winter if you are a hard core fisho
Bait such as Little Yabbies , Worms , are best . Lures are varied in type , Hard Bodies like Feral , Ambush , Codger , Crazy deep , Oar-Gee are all good lures . Medium size . , Spinners , Like the Old Hog back with red Wool on the Hook , Spinner bait's in Small profile ,Bibless Lures like , Jackall , Shudder , and Soft Plastic's such as Stand up Yabbies , Sqidgee and Sqid type all work
Size 2 Hook and fill to the bream with Bait , small sinker right on top of the hook if fished straight over the side of the boat next to trees in around 6 to 25 feet of water . Lures should be hitting the bottom when trolled in lakes , rocky points and drop offs around 4 mt's deep are best . Shallow lakes are best in the morning first thing , working shallow lure's in colors Red/Black , Purple , Yellow/Black or White /Black around weedy or rocky edges , Bibless Lures ,same colors , Spinners and Plastics , in colors White , Pink or Perch . Plastics can also be used on a loop tied 30 to 40 cm above a trolling lure . This works well when the bottom lure fowles with weed and catch's a lot of Fish by itself .
Mainly spring and the cooler months in Streams and winter in lakes
Lures including Small to Med/Small Hard Bodies Strada Piccola, Aife , Rapala Trout , Perch , Paul Nicel's Trout bait ,
East of Shepparton in Streams and Lakes hold the biggest number of Trout . Streams fish well with Small Lures worked along the edge of back waters and eddy's best . Lakes fish well in Winter trolling a bait , Tassie Devil or Small Lure behind a Ford Fender . Trout are found in the Irrigation system around Shepparton , Tatura area , aspecially the inlet and outlet Channels of the Waranga basin between Tatura , Rushworth and Murchison . Small lures and Soft Plastic's in Trout or natural colors worked below the drop bars and along weed banks produce some nice Trout up to 50 cm's long . Best times are when water is being supplied to farmers and the flow increases .
