Pic of the Week!

Sam Annandale caught and released around 1.3m of 'swamp donk' this week and ticked off a major bucket list goal after hundreds of hours targeting mulloway. This darker beast was released back into the river waters near Albany and given the respect it deserves. You can catch the release on Sam's Insta page @sam.annandale - even got him a plug on the ABC. Nice work Sam!

Broome catches
Was great to see some of the crew from Tackle World Broome get into some threadies and barra on a recent trip! Jade and Gino had a great session on the vibes and hard-bodied lures. Solid work guys. 

Boats

The wind played havoc again this week but a few cheeky windows opened up for a fish. A couple of the crew from Tackle World Broome headed out and had a great session in close on threadies and barra. Concentrating more on the estuary and creek systems and towards Telegraph seems to be best at the moment and trolling has definitely been the way to go as live baits are getting smashed by sharks (even the prawns). Vibes weighing around 20-30g are the best lures for a great adrenaline rush on these two great species. Queenies are performing well over the shallower sand patches. A few tripletail have been trickling through but you want to avoid dirty water and the wind so you can consistently flick around the structure for them. There have been a lot of mack tuna getting around providing some great fun in jellybean size. Most of the mackies getting around this week were broad-barred and greys, with the Spaniards quite hit and miss. There should be some decent windows coming up this week from Saturday with lower winds and the trout and cod will always lurk around the inshore reef structures, just make sure you try to drift or move spots after every couple of fish or so to avoid the pesky tax man. The crabs have been rather quiet, but more anglers are starting to search for them now so they should hopefully pick up. 

Shore-based

Roebuck Bay and Telegraphs has once again been a productive spot for threadfin, barramundi and blue nose salmon this week via vibe and deeper diving lures. The Town Beach jetty and the surrounding beaches picked up this week for whiting and a few solid queenfish also rolled through smacking vibes and stickbaits. With the wind set to drop off from Saturday, it's a good chance to flick lures around the inshore bombies and reef structures for coral trout and cod as they will always be around and the casting accuracy should become a lot easier. The queenies have also been loving the shallower sand patches this week and stickbaits are the best way to go. Wasn't too much success on the crabs this week during the windy days but we recommend getting out now for a prowl before the rains start to settle in and mess with the flow and water clarity. As always, thanks to the pros from Tackle World Broome for their tips and good to see some of you got out and about for a great fishing session earlier this week. 
Exmouth catches
Young Riley had a ball recently with his dad Dave and renowned professional photographer Marco Fraschetti @oceansdownunder around Exmouth. The fishing trip was a reward for young Riley making the Perth Demons development squad. Might be following in the skilled footy/fishing footsteps of Mark Lecras there Riley, nice work! 

Boats

Been a rollercoaster in the wind but there was a couple of good gaps earlier this week. Professional photographer Marco Fraschetti @oceansdownunder managed to head out with young Riley and his dad Dave and enjoyed a fantastic session on the tuna and golden trevally near the Muirons. Marco also landed a cracker of a coral trout off one of the bombies, which are always great locations to whip a soft plastic or lure next to in case a bigger trout is lurking under the structure. VLF and the Muirons have been a great spot for queenies lately in the shallows on your surface stickbaits and it's worth prowling around the islands and flicking towards the sandy shoreline to pluck them from the shallows. The odd billfish have shown up but have dropped off in numbers this week. The mackies are still firing around the Muirons on the troll as the water temperature is heating up. The Gulf has been doing well for sailfish but the cobia have been the more common species here this week with good numbers rolling through. Squid in kraken sizes are still raging through the Gulf and the pros from Tackle World Exmouth recommend taking advantage of this before the water warms up and they start to dwindle off. Sunday arvo through to Wednesday is looking decent for boating but most of this weekend will have some rather punchy southerlies.  

Shore-based

The beaches around Bundegi have been productive this week, especially across the flats. Hurling stickbaits around here has seen some decent queenies rolling through along with some giant trevally and golden trevally. The beaches towards the bottom of the Gulf have been great for whiting as well, with good sizes rolling through on a consistent basis on surface lures. If you're chasing land-based squid, the Learmonth jetty is your best bet with plenty of fishers taking home a solid amount of squid rings this past week. The key to frying squid rings as they are is drying them first before throwing them in a searing hot pan for a short amount of time (60-90 seconds). You also can't beat the combination of flour, egg and bread crumbs/crushed chips before shallow frying them in a centimetre of oil for around two minutes. More people are also starting to look through the mangroves for muddies and these numbers should start to increase. We'll make sure we keep you updated on the best specific creeks and river systems for big bucks but generally within 40km of town you'll find them as long as you put in the time on foot. Kudos to the Tackle World Exmouth crew for their tips and make sure you pay them a visit if you're heading out. Should be decent land-based fishing from Sunday arvo onwards. 
 

 
 
Kalbarri catches


Boats

The good man Dean from Kalbarri Sports and Dive has put his store up for sale. Give him a buzz on 9937 1126 if you're keen to make an offer and fill your brain with the best Kalbarri fishing knowledge from all the locals rolling through the store. Just remember you'll have to hear my annoying voice once a week on the phone for the Kalbarri report. 

Few decent days this week saw some great fish caught. The bay was red hot for whiting on Sunday and a lot of boats came home with a good feed. Around Jakes Point was the best whiting spot as it's quite sheltered and there is plenty of deeper sand holes. There wasn't too much pelagic action this week, although Red Bluff and Oyster Reef have been brilliant spots for both larger tailor and mulloway. Most of the bigger tailor have been rolling through at Oysters with 70cm+ specimens common. Back Beach has also seen similar-sized larger tailor being pulled in. Boats staying in close off Wittecarra also reported good numbers of skippy, tarwhine and decent tailor. Port Gregory further down the coast has been the best place for herring and skippy lately. Lucky Bay seems to be the spot that has produced the most impressive catches and species this week though, with beefy yellowtail kingfish coming through along with mulloway and tailor. Most of the mornings from Saturday through to Wednesday are looking ideal for a send in the boats. 

Shore-based

Tailor and mulloway are still coming through in impressive sizes across Frustrations, Lucky Bay, Wittecarra, the Sand Spit and the river mouth. Lucky Bay seems to have had the best numbers this past week and occasionally yellowtail kingfish will pop up among the tailor. Most of the bigger tailor are still crossing the 70cm mark and provide a great fight on poppers and metals when flicked out into the whitewash. Port Gregory has also been a very productive spot for tailor and mulloway if you prefer to head out of town. For those chasing bream, it's been a decent week around most of the jetties this week but a majority of the good results flowed through in the evenings. Try going further up river and find the structure as this seems to be the best odds for catching 1kg specimens over 35cm. Sunday morning is looking nice if you're having a cast off the land as the wind should remain a decent south-easterly until about 11am. Thanks to Dean from Kalbarri Sports and Dive for his tips this week!
Geraldton catches
Mat Svenson @mat.svenson there's no way my noodle arms and mosquito bite biceps could lift what you have in the past fortnight. Last week it was a horse of a mulloway caught off a Geraldton beach, this week it's a stunning Sambo off the yak. Keep up the good work sonny. 


Boats

The weather has once again been pretty gross over the past week for boats but the mulloway have been pretty widespread off the beaches in close. The weed has been a major pain for boat and land-based fishers but when you can find clear patches there is tailor and mulloway lurking around Coronations and Drummonds as per usual. The early mornings have been the calmest for wind and the low tide across Southgates and Flat Rocks also produced greenback tailor and one mulloway up to 1.2m earlier in the week. Greenough River also saw big numbers of 30-40cm tailor this week, particularly across the river mouth but occasionally a 60cm whopper rolls through mostly on lures. The squidding action has gone very quiet due to the dirty water and it's quite late in the year. If you're wanting to avoid the weed, Tarcoola and Southgates in the morning are generally the easiest to fish and both are consistent for tailor, mulloway and whiting. 

Shore-based

Once again your best chances at taking home fish this week are from land-based fishing. The reefs of Tarcoola and Southgates in the morning has been a solid spot for big tailor and mulloway because these areas tend to be the easiest to navigate around the weed. One fisher pulled in six big greenbacks at Southgates earlier this week and went back the next day to find it had been overrun by weed. The best chance is by putting in the distance by car or foot until you find a clear gutter away from the weed and hurl a cast in there. Greenough River around the mouth has been great for mulloway, tailor and snook. The whiting have been appearing in the sand patches off the beaches when the weed cleared and netters have had a good run of luck this week. Some of the whiting have been stonkers at 40cm in length, so it's definitely worth throwing some surface lures throughout the shallow sand patches if you can find a weedless spot to yourself. Drummonds Cove to Coronations has been similar, with the weed and wind direction deciding where fishers go, but those who put in the time and effort did well for tailor and whiting. Saturday and Sunday have moderate southerly winds and there is always a spot where you can use this to your casting advantage, just try to avoid the weed! Big thanks to Geraldton Sports Centre for their tips! 
Lancelin catches
The Lancelin tailor master in Peter Fullarton was in red hot form finding several big greenback tailor off the Lancelin beaches this week. You can catch Peter's tailor action on YouTube. 


Boats

Unfortunately the boating activity out from Lancelin has been well down over the past week, but boats that have been heading out are largely focusing on getting lobster pots in the water in expectation of the upcoming whites run. It's not quite kicking off just yet, but there are a few larger reds lurking around in the reef ledges. Tuna have been most common out around the 30m depths and tend to be feeding more early in the mornings which is quite odd given they tend to become more lively as the water warms by midday. Otherwise, there is little else to target offshore at the moment but smaller boats and kayaks have been finding great numbers of whiting inside the first line of reef and there is nothing wrong with a feed of this delicious species. Trolling pilchards along the back of the shore break early mornings has also been a great strategy to catch a few tailor. The mornings from Saturday right through to Wednesday should have drops in the wind, which could provide comfortable boating windows. 

Shore-based

Beach fishing has seen plenty of action and chopper tailor have been improving in numbers and willing to take baits or lures well into the morning or at sunset. Peter Fullarton had an awesome session on the bigger greenbacks earlier this week (as pictured above) and they have been featuring around the reef breaks and gutters, though most beach features have significantly sanded up. Herring have been swarming along the beaches in good numbers and decent-sized sand whiting over 30cm in length have been easy to find north of town. The jetty also fished very well this week with better numbers of squid and tailor biting into the evenings. Sunday through to Wednesday morning should be great for land-based flicks. Thanks to Peter Fullarton for his report as always! 
 

Scott's Species - Long-nose emperor - the forearm burners

Long-nose emperors certainly give your line a thump, as Steve Palumbo found out on the shallows around Rowley Shoals. 
WA's fishing guru Scott Coghlan has covered long-nose emperor this week, with an extended snout that will seek out your lures and baits before giving your arms a workout.

Esperance catches


Boats

Coupla decent fishing days again this week and a few boats cruised around the islands within 3-4km off the coast. Many of them reported southern bluefin on the troll off the back of the first islands with most of them plump and healthy. Boats who headed out deeper to the 55-60m depths found plenty of harlequin, breaksea and queen snapper. Occasionally some beefy Sambos rolled through in the same depths on the bottom via jigging and bottom bashing, with the biggest this week coming in at around 25kg along with a few smaller yellowtail kingfish. The islands and around Bandy Creek have also performed very well for King George whiting, herring, squid and lengthy flathead. There won't be too many boats heading out this weekend due to some aggressive southerlies rolling through, so try and position yourself to be sheltered from these winds before Monday morning should see this back right off for a better fishing window. 

Shore-based

Once again Esperance has shone as quite possibly the best land-based fishing spot in WA this week. The pros from Southern Sports and Tackle reported a huge amount of squid and herring in close this week and they were widespread. The salmon at Fourth Beach are still hanging around in big sizes and numbers and this should continue for the next couple of months. They have also been common at Salmon Beach and Stockyards, with anglers using soft plastics and lighter gear also landing impressive herring and flathead. Around Alexander Bay has seen salmon, herring and skippy up to about 1.5kg. Most of the gummy sharks caught around Alexander Bay and Roses this week have been on the smaller side, but they are in good numbers. Bandy Creek is certainly still the best King George whiting and flathead spot and the average size of the KG's is starting to creep up. The lakes have still been respectable bream spots, most have featured around 30cm in length but the 40cm beasts are still lurking around the more gnarly structures. Southerly wind will back off by Monday morning but if you're wanting a flick this weekend, have a prowl at Esperance on Google Earth to suss out any sheltered land-based spots. 
Great Southern catches


Boats

It has been yet another quiet week on the boating front from the region with the weather continuing to make it difficult for those to get out and target demersal species. Some made the most of the weather window on Monday and picked up some breaksea cod and dhufish in the 40-60m marks west of Albany. Small boat fishers managed to pick up a good feed of whiting and squid in the usual haunts off Griffiths Street and in close surrounding Skippy Reef and Gull Rock. The weekend ahead isn’t looking great either with the best weather window being later in the afternoon and evening on Sunday with dropping swell and winds. On the bright side it looks like from Wednesday onwards might also hold some decent boating weather. 

Shore-based

The river fishing has been firing of late in the King and Kalgan systems. Those who have walked the banks casting soft plastic and hard body lures have managed to get stuck into some good sized bream up to 40cm, with most between the 25-35cm size range. Alongside the bream, captures of mulloway have increased with some impressive specimens to the meter mark being landed. Sam Annandale (our pic of the week) managed a beast of a mulloway measuring close to 1.3m and it was one of the darkest specimens we've seen. This time of year the mulloway are aggregating in the river systems, so the catch rates should start to pick up over the coming weeks. The larger fish don’t taste too great and have lived their whole life in the river and are crucial to the overall population’s health, so if you’re lucky enough to reel in a 'catch of a lifetime', it's best to release it quickly after taking a great snap as Sam did so the cycle continues. As the waters begin to warm heading into summer, we recommend trying your luck at fishing surface lures for whiting. Areas such as Emu Point begin to fire heading into December and it’s a great style of fishing to try if you haven’t before. Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning are currently looking pretty sweet for a flick. 
South West catches
Simon Holland @southernforests_angler has been in tip top freshwater fishing form the past fortnight! He landed a stunning golden-coloured brown trout in Pemberton last week and followed it up with this solid broody rainbow on a red and black Zonker on the fly. That nose looks like Gonzo's from the Muppets (the fish, not you Simon). 


Boats

The squid and King George whiting have been firing in the bays recenty. Most of the squid have featured further south towards Busso, but the plump and healthy KG's have been turning up in the sand patches amongst the weed in the 5-20m depths with a good average size of about 40cm. There hasn't been too many tuna around for those trying their luck on the troll, but some massive yellowtail kingfish were caught earlier in the week by Josh Italiano and the crew from Whitey's Tackle, with all of them easily going around the 1.4m mark and weighing upwards of 25kg. They also came across some solid Sambos when speed jigging in depths between 80-140m. As for the crays, the divers have been doing very well for big reds on the isolated reef ledges when the visibility has been great. If you're dropping pots, positioning them on the western or southern side of the larger isolated reef edges is your best bet, but the whites run might be slightly delayed as the water temperature is quite chilly. If you're chasing big jumbo reds though, now is the best time. Every morning right through to Wednesday is looking great for a boat session, so lick the stamp and send it as Daniel Ricciardo would say (McLaren doesn't deserve you Dan).  

Shore-based

The bread and butter species such as herring and whiting have had a productive week off most of the beaches. With the weather starting to warm up, the King George whiting have also started coming in quite close and plenty of anglers were pulling them in from the sand patches off the Busso jetty and within some of the sheltered bays. The water temperature in the estuaries is starting to warm up, so the surface whiting action is a wagon that a lot of anglers have opted to jump on. The warmer water will start to flow through to Busso and Dunsborough and any of the shallow sand flats over the coming week or so is a good place to start targeting them. Busso jetty as always is a great squidding location and it is worth having a few flicks at one weed patch and walking another 10-20m up to the next. A mixture of jig colours works well (white and glittery is my personal favourite) and any jig that has a decent glow once it starts to go dark is always a good bet in the evenings. If you're swapping the saltwater for freshwater this weekend, the brown and rainbow trout have been highly active through most of the shallower streams and rivers, taking flies and lures across the grid. The waterways in particular around Pemberton, Big Brook Dam and Lefroy have seen massive brown and rainbow trout pulled in (90% of them by the freshwater master Simon Holland as seen in the snap above). Thanks to the crew at Whitey's Tackle for their report! From tomorrow right through to Wednesday you're in for some cracker land-based weather so good luck!

Freshwater

The brown trout have been notoriously harder to come by in the freshwater systems lately but the past fortnight has seen plenty of beauties caught. Wade Fennell @wadefennell_fishing has been catching fish all across WA this year and this brown trout he released is up there as one of the prettiest. 
Following recent stockings and the Pemberton Trout Festival, Big Brook Dam has been fishing very well when fishers have escaped the rains that have been consistent in the region. Plenty of the smaller yearlings and some of the larger ex-broodstocks are beginning to be captured, including a stonker rainbow trout over 60cm in size caught and released by Simon Holland. The same reports rolled through for Harvey Dam also, with captures of larger trout starting to trickle in as they settle into their feeding habits. Logue Brook and Waroona continue to fish well for yearling trout, but the reports for the larger ex-broodstock released into these waters has been quiet. I’m sure this will change over the coming weeks once they get razzled up with the warmer conditions. Captures of redfin perch have slowed a little over the recent week with wet weather in the South-West, although there are still some 40cm+ fish being reeled in by those who are persistent and finding the deeper, stagnant pools. Kayak anglers on the Warren and Preston rivers have been the most successful, using soft plastics and jigging right up against solid timber structure. A big tip if you're wanting to give this style of fishing a try, use weedless jigheads as you won’t get snagged anywhere near as much through these river systems, it also prevents the beautiful serenity of the South-West becoming corrupted with profanities. 
 
Mandurah and surrounds


Mandurah

The crays which were busy over the past couple of weeks have quietened down in the pots and no whites are rolling through just yet, but the divers are finding great bundles of larger hard-shelled red crays in deeper waters between 20-30m. Now is the best time of the year to get yourself some nice jumbos and stock up for your Christmas feasts. Diving around the isolated reefs between 5-15m is a safe bet and if you're going to drop pots, keep them quite close to the reefs and avoid the sand for now. The squidding has taken a very big spike upwards this week across Mandurah, which is usually overshadowed by the northern Rockingham region for squidding. If you want to take home some big kraken though, the Mandurah rockwalls and groynes have been very productive this week thanks to the clearer conditions, with some anglers landing 10 squid from 10 casts in close and on the drift. A lot of skippers are still enjoying the big King George Whiting on inshore broken patches of sand and weed around Five Fathom, with the occasional 60cm whopper bruising some ribs. The tuna are also still doing well but have been in the "jellybean' size according to Ash Ramm from Tackle World Miami. As the water temperature warms up over the coming weeks, the tuna will really start to kick into gear. In close, there have been massive schools of herring going wild in burley trails this week, with a lot of fishers pulling in chunky 30cm specimens that are big enough to fillet. Inside the estuary across the flats, there has been a good amount of whiting and juvenile salmon being plucked from the surface, along with the occasional tailor. Sunday morning is looking delicious for a boating session and most mornings next week are also looking inviting. 
 

SECRET HARBOUR / PORT KENNEDY / ROCKINGHAM / SAFETY BAY / WARNBRO SOUND

The squidding has done well again this week and your best chance is waiting for the calmer days and drifting over the shallower weed patches in close. Having a scan of the Rockingham region on Google Earth is always handy for trying to find reachable weed patches from the land and you will be surprised at how close to shore they will roam. A cheeky 'set and forget' way of catching squid via boating is by simply tying a squid jig about a metre under a float and placing your rod in the holder while drifting. This method is just as effective as actively jigging over the weed beds. Around Coventry Reef has been the best spot for herring, pike and tailor in big numbers, with a lot of boats being surrounded by herring this week. Yellowtail kingfish and Samson fish turned up around Five Fathom on the structures around the 20-30m depths. Point Peron has been producing tarwhine and herring in the evenings, while tailor are still most active around sunrise across a lot of the beaches heading north towards Perth. The beaches around Port Kennedy and Secret Harbour are still the most consistent spots for tailor generally around the 35-40cm range in the mornings, but occasionally a bigger greenback of 50cm+ and even smaller-sized mulloway will appear. King George whiting have popped up occasionally from the beaches around Safety Bay and larger specimens have been taken offshore between 5-20m depths. As there is plenty of reef around Rockingham and the islands, this is also a good spot to be diving for bigger jumbo crays, just make sure you put the breeding females with berries or tar spots back quickly. 
Perth catches
When does the size of a King George whiting go from kidney slapper to rib breaker? The Fremantle Sailing Club Angling Section held their King George Classic over the weekend and there were some pretty fat and healthy beasts pulled in! Congrats to all winners from the 56 anglers who competed, you can check out a rundown of all prize winners on the FSC Facebook Page. 


Boats

The boat ramps across Perth have been busy this week with the nicer weather. The outer reefs within about 2-3km from the shore have seen impressive catches of tailor this week, especially when flicking lures or mulies on ganged hooks into the whitewash right next to the reefs. A little further out around the inshore Rottnest reefs, across Three Mile Reef out from Hillarys and up towards Two Rocks there have been some great catches of yellowtail kingfish, with one angler right in front of our Hillarys office on Wednesday holding up one impressive kingie that easily measured 1.4m long. Along the western side of Rottnest, the yellowfin and southern bluefin tuna have been performing very well as they follow the warmer water currents and trolling through the 20-50m depths has worked well. The Barges located south-west of Rotto in the 80-120m depths has been a consistent spot for bigger sambos this past week as well (hats off to you if you're pulling in 20kg Sambos in depths greater than 100m!). The deeper sand patches usually between 10-20m depths around Stragglers, about 2km off Fremantle and closer to Garden Island saw some great King George whiting caught, with a lot of 50-60cm specimens pulled in during the Fremantle Sailing Club Angling Section's King George Classic competition over the weekend. If you're dropping pots for crays, a lot of jumbo hard-shelled reds are lurking around the isolated reef ledges in the 10-20m depth ranges off Rockingham, Hillarys, Mindarie and Two Rocks and the run of the whites is still not quite underway due to some slightly cooler water temperatures. From Sunday right through to Wednesday the mornings are looking polished for a boating session though.

Shore-based

If I was having a land-based flick, I would take advantage of the tailor running across the southern beaches around Fremantle, with South Mole being a productive spot this week. They have also been turning up in great numbers across the Cottesloe, City Beach and Scarborough beaches and seem to be preferring a bit of chop. Ganged mulies and metals are both working well. The rockwalls further north at Two Rocks also produced some bigger 50cm greenback tailor this week. With the water conditions flattening out like a pancake over the past few days, the herring, skippy and whiting started going wild across virtually every rockwall in the metro area. If you throw out a bit of burley, the herring have been coming in thick and fast, with a lot of anglers having a great time catching plump specimens up to 30cm in length. The river has seen a lot of fishers starting to target flathead in the sand flats, with the ever reliable Point Walter seeing a lot of smaller fish albeit in good numbers generally between 30-40cm rolling through. If you're chasing mulloway in the river, further up towards Ascot, Maylands and Bayswater has seen a few bigger catches this week. A 1.3m silver beast of a mulloway was caught by young Dexter Rodrigues and his dad Allan quite close to the city centre on Friday evening, which was a brilliant catch and took a lot of teamwork to reel in. While most mulloway have been featuring further inland, they have also still been turning up around the usual hotspots of the Canning and Narrows bridges. The bream further up river were still around but in lower numbers and sizes, mostly around the 25cm mark but Garratt Road bridge produced a few bigger catches. Kudos to the crew from Anglers Fishing World in Freo for their report this week and enjoy the bliss metro fishing weather rolling through from Sunday onwards!
