Dinghy and small boat fishers have been getting among herring, skippy, garfish and squid within a couple of miles of the coast. Nannygai have been found near the islands along with queen snapper, breaksea cod and harlequin fish. Bigger nannygai were caught out wide where Samson fish to 30kg, yellowtail kingfish in the 6kg to 8kg range and sea sweep were also picked up.
Boat fishers off Bunbury haven't had to travel too far for pink snapper and fat skippy this past week, as shown by Brendan Stemp above. Reef fishing off the west coast of Cape Naturaliste has been productive on pink snapper, dhufish and breaksea cod when conditions have been suitable. More snapper have been caught within Geographe Bay off Busselton, where King George whiting and squid have also been picked up.
