Jurien Bay Beach and Rock Reports

Post by Ross Compe » Tue Jun 06, 2017 1:41 pm

Joe Hovarth and Tony Brinsden returned to the beaches of Jurien Bay last weekend and found success again.
The guys fished north of Hill River clear of the weed in northerly winds.
Tailor for Tony while Joe nabbed a very sizable Flathead of around a kilo.A lonely Herring and a Whiting added to the bag before a metre long Mulloway made the trip for the guys.
Joe likes a feed of Mulloway :shock: :shock: :shock:
Great stuff and thanks for the report from one of valued Recfish contributors and good mate.
I don't have any Mulloway :cry: :cry: :cry:

Post by Ross Compe » Fri Jun 23, 2017 12:53 pm

Greg Uren and Joe Hovarth managed a few fish north of Cervantes from the beach the June weekend after the holiday weekend and kept the frypan busy and a smile on the face.
Joe dipped out on a biggin this time but still bagged 4 Herring,1 Sand Whiting,1 Flathead and a Pike.
Greg had the prize fish this time with a terrific Pink Snapper that weighed 4.75kgs.
Well done :) :) :)

Good News for Mark Sinclair while fishing the beaches just south of Jurien Bay in August.Fair weather and sunny conditions made for some great fishing for a very accomplished angler with another notable win for his club beach and rock event. 8) 8)
A aggregate bag weight of 10.735kgs in the species open event that included 1 Pink Snapper of 7.85kgs,4 Herring,1 Flathead,4 Tailorand 2 Pike is terrific angling in that style of event.
Well done Mark and congradulations :!: :!:

Not a great result for Joe Horvath at Hill River during the the same event as Mark Sinclair in August this time but thats fishin :cry: :cry:
Never mind mate looks like he is still doin the righty by his clubmates and putting them amongst the fish.
Joe did manage 2 Yakkas and a Yellow Eyed Mullet from the suds.
Thats how it is when like Joe anglers concentrate on larger fare.
So much water and so few biggins amongst it.

Paul Berry was in the area in September and managed a runner up prize in the open beach and rock event with a mixed bag of Herring,Yellowfin Whiting and some Sand Whiting during more fine weather.
Tasty fare mate.
Some times a modest bag is good enough for a great finish eh :!: :!:

Winners are grinners and Ian and Donna Jones did well in their respective events with Ian nabbing the veterans and Donna the Ladies prize in the November beach and rock club comp held between Cervantes and Greenhead.
Details are a little sketchy but their winning bags included Herring and Sea Trumpeter.
They stuck to the task amongst some strong winds and the anglers worst enemy the weed.
Well done :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The weekend of September 9 and 10 proved to be a fruitful foray for our old mate Joe Horvath at one of his favourite haunts north of Cervantes during a Go Anywhere beach and rock competition.
Quiet conditions had him fishing for Whiting and Herring early that morning but better was to come later in the day.
Fishing a Mulie bait or Westralian Pilchard as they are correctly known proved the right combination with a tremendous land based capture of a Samson Fish that based on the the fork tail measurement weight assesment went 12.6kgs.
The Sea Kingfish was released to live another day and was spotted later that afternoon swimming strongly north close in shore.
Joe won the event in style with a bag that also included Herring and Whiting.
Greg Uren apparently managed a huge Tiger Shark from the beach that was also released around that period that was estimated to nudge 153kgs.
It was taken on heavy braid line on a balloon rig.
Perhaps the only concern along that stretch of coast is the increasing number of swimmers that seem to ignore the real dangers of the wilderness coast where big sharks are not uncommon.
:shock: :shock: :shock:

More information on that big Tiger Shark taken from the shore north of Cervantes by Greg Uren. Seems the Tiger was taken in January on a balloon rig only 120 metres from the beach on 50lb braid and a egg beater style reel.
The beastie was gaffed by a very nervous Joe Horvath and released after measuring by the fork tail measurement method.
The shark took a live Herring bait around 8am and its estimated weight was 153kgs.
Greg is pictured here with a Samson Fish taken from the same area.

Mark Sinclair has always been a classy angler and his trip to the Cervantes -Greenhead area in November during a beach and rock competition proved his worth again. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Unlucky not to win the event outright with a bag that demonstrated his versatility in species style competition he had to settle for the runner up award.
His bag included 1 Mulloway 58cm,8 Tailor the largest around 1.45kgs,1 Snook,1 Garfish,5 Herring and 3 Whiting.
Great stuff mate.
