Macie Attack at Hillarys Marina

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:03 am

Looks like a Macie Attack out from Hillarys Marina :!: :!: :!:
Paul Maciejak nabbed a 20 kilo Samson Fish about 6kms out from shore.
Fishing with Stevo the guys ran into plenty of Herring which is good news and as I recall a nice small shark and some Skippy around the kilo mark were most welcome.
Try skinning your Skippy next time and forget the scaling for better flavour.
:D :D :D

Bloody,bloody,bloomin,bloomin.Internet,computers foul ups.Yes we are still alive and are trying to deal with Fishers new bloomin format.
Humungous reports are about to gladen yur hearts matey so stay atuned at all topics fer updates real soon.
P.S Don't give me a hard time or I won't be tellin yous nothin. :twisted: :twisted:
Stop yer wingin about more hot photos as well or I'll scupel yer kippers.
All in good time.
Stinkin new technology :evil: :evil: :evil:
Catchin up we is....
October 5 around the D5 marker and the wreck site was the place to be in Cockburn Sound just before the close of the demersal season for big Pink Snapper to 90cm.
Remember it for next season and read and weep.
Even Hemmingway didn't have to put up with this technoligical foul up.
Plastics and 4kg braid made for lots of fun as a ban on certain species pervade amongst concerns of declining fish stocks.
Good news is the number of Garfish being spotted on the surface.
I like Garfish :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Just remember that restrictions are still in place for them as well in certain areas.
More on Jewfish action soon from the the 3 mile reef happening over the last couple of months so stay tuned.

Westralian Jewfish on 3 kilo line out from the 3 mile reef sounds like lots of fun. Stevo and Wayne D were getting amongst some big fish regularly from Waynes boat and terrific results on plastics have interested a few other anglers.
The action a little while ago was kept pretty quiet but was frenetic at times with both anglers enjoying a bonus.
Tight lines..

Observation City Skippy

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:06 am

Heaps of Skipjack out from Observation City of late with good numbers taken and some bolters of up to 57cms amongst them last weekend.
Plenty of action with Stevo after bigger fare employing 7'0 hooks and whole Westralian Pilchards for bait.
Amazing action with only smaller specimens not taken. Average size was around 750gms.
Big Samson Fish well over 15 kilo were released back to the salt by the crew.
Whole Mulies on 7'0s and a 57cm Skipjack was the reward ....

Re: Perth Garden Island Pink Snapper D9 Reports

Post by Ross Compe » Wed Oct 03, 2018 11:42 am

Aye Pink Snappers from D9 Wreck before season closure Cockburn Sound with the Paul M the Jug and Stevo with magnificent fresh Pink Snapper around 9kilo. Yes big Pinkies at the end of season and I hope you weren't left out for another season.
One of the the things you learn is that when you get the word that means now...
Grab the rods launch the boat because they probably won't be there when you are all cosy in a weeks time.
Move on the the fish quick me Jack :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Well done lads....

Cockburn Monster Pink Snapper with Stevo and Paul 'Jugs'M

Post by Ross Compe » Wed Oct 03, 2018 11:55 am

Sneaking out the last couple of days before the closure of the the Cockburn Sound Pink Snapper season and getting amongst them at the D9 Wreck and again at the Garden Island Snapper local the guys managed their 2 each again nudging 9 kilos .That is 2 each. :roll: :roll: :roll:
Plenty of Garfish surface activity again throughout the Sound but size is not impressive.
Local pros continue to supply local fresh fish markets with big Gar form outside the commercial and recfish exclusion zones and size and supply is consistant and impressive.. :| :| :|
The weather will continue to improve and I'm predicting a radical season for those willing to diversify and stay safe.
Cheers and Tight Lines.......................

Recreational Fishing Boating Licence

Post by Ross Compe » Mon Oct 29, 2018 12:45 pm

How bout the lads Pink Snapper in the the previous 2 posts. :x :x :x Well there been gettin to much of the attention cause just big bloomin quality.
Not that I'd have a big bloomin Pink Snapper in me frypan.
I was pleasantly surprised how easily it was to obtain a recreational boating fishing licence from Recfish at the Dept of Fisheries at the Northern side of the marina just past the boat ramps.
Just walk in and meet the friendly staff at reception part with 20 bucks and your Seniors Card and you can fish from a mates boat on invitation or even your own.
Must haves are a Skippers Ticket even if you don't own your own boat.
Skippers get ill and even injured and its a great crew that gets you onboard with the best and amongst the guys who know what they are doing.
Help yourself your skipper and get em both at concession while you can.
You can operate a vessel and catch fish from it as well as assisting your skipper with learning things like operating a fish finder and a few useful knots and navigational skills that will relax your skipper, owner and may one day get both of safely home.
Check your entitlements and more importantly enjoy the experience,challenge and your sport. 8) 8) 8)
