15 Minute Mulloway

Club member Joe recently adventured out Perth metro to target some Mulloway. He wasn’t made to wait long. The sun still hadn’t set and no more than 15 minutes into the session, (probably still on his first bait) he hooked this nice mulloway.

The fish was tempted by a fillet of tailor. Cracking fish Joe, well done. Thanks for the report.

 

 

Snappertastic on the Plastics!

Wayne has been at it again folks.
Friday night Wayne took the tub out in metro waters to pass a few hours. He anchored up at an undisclosed location and proceeded to burley up for a snapper or two.
Once the trail was established he unholstered the weapon of choice, a Wilson Palagic Graphite rod 15-20lb, paired with a Shimano Stradic 4000 and fishing 15lb Berkley Fire Line braid.
Down went a Berkley Gulp 7 inch Jerk Shad soft plastic in the Pink Shine colour and up came this monster.

Lenght 1160mm. The fish was released to breed again being such an old fish.
Well done Wayne.

Fishing Report: Southwest Sambos

Club member Wayne, a noticeable absentee from the last field day (albeit due to holiday commitments with his family), sent in a report of a land based fishing session at a secret spot of his on the south west coast.

Wayne slide baited some fresh caught herring and skippy along with just the right amount of burley to temp some yellow tail kings and sambos. Wayne put his trust in nothing less than his faithful Alvey reels (15kg line), on 9144 rods.

Southwest Rock Fishing

Fish ranging from 12-30KG were accounted for with most successfully released. Those that didn’t release were dispatched, filleted, sliced thin and shallow fried fresh that day, feeding the entire holiday group of 22 people. Nothing was wasted which is great to hear.

One for the pool room!

Top work Wayne and thanks for the report.
