Westralian Jewfish double at Boranup Beach

Post by Ross Compe » Sat Mar 17, 2012 8:31 pm

Fantastic photo of Mr Ron Thomas with a Westralian Jewfish double taken from Boranup beach.
These are outstanding fish and 25 kilos of Jewfish from the beach in an hour is amazing 8) 8) 8)
The fish weighed 11.6 kg and 14.2 kilos respectively. :shock: :shock: :shock:
Often taken in pairs or company.
Ron took two of these beauties within an hour using live Herring for bait.
Both fish were taken in late afternoon :wink: :wink: :wink:
Its a great little beach that and I've fished it myself several times.
Some big Mulloway come from there and a few oversize Flathead :)
What an afternoon Ron absolutely outstanding stuff.
Cheers

New Herring Bag Limits

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Apr 09, 2015 1:21 pm

Recfish has announced reduced bag limits for ammateur anglers.Effective from March 1 2015 the new daily bag limit for Australian Herring is 12 fish per day. :roll:
The reason is a declining stock of Western Australias most important and prolific species.
Perhaps fortunately this area is blessed with a terrific range of species that still offers anglers great opportunity.
Skipjack,Salmon,Bonito,Snook (Pike),Shark etc as well as prize fish such as Westralian Jewfish,Samson Fish,Tuna and Pink Snapper are there for those who prepared to put in the effort. 8) 8)
Remember the new regulations as ignorance of new limits may not be enough to prevent prosecution.

Winner at Beach and Rock Event

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Apr 13, 2017 10:02 am

Great result for W Drage last weekend with a terrific mixed bag for an aggregate weight totaling 23.68kgs.
Waynes catch was good enough to secure the open trophy in his clubs Go Anywhere beach and rock angling competition.
Fish included 4 Salmon the largest nudging a very respectable 5kgs.
8 good Skipjack Trevally added to the bag the largest weighing 783gms. At that size it may be good enough to win the largest Trevally trophy for the annual species prize.
12 chunky Herring went in as well!
Well done buddy 8) 8)
The Conto Boranup area usually fishes well this time of year and loads of experience by a very talented angler paid off again.
No sign of Bonito in the area yet as they often mix with the Salmon schools before heading up the coast to the metropolitan waters of Perth.
Media coverage of a huge school of Salmon at Margaret River warmed the heart of local anglers.
Surfers competing during Pro event were ordered from the water by organizers amid concerns of sharks hunting the Salmon.
Cheers

What a great champion Wayne Drage is in angling circles.He just keeps bobbing up with wins and placings all over the place. His boating prowess is becoming better known and his recent runner up in the AAA State Beach and Rock Individual Trophy is fantastic.
Early April had Wayne fishing the Conto area where he managed a beautiful mixed bag of 20.54kgs while competing in his clubs beach and rock competition.
A Yellowtail Kingfish,3 Salmon,8 Skippy and 4 Herring were good enough to win the open event.
Well done. 8) 8) 8)
