Fishing Report 15th September 2017

Fishing Report

Bluewater Tackle World
Friday 15th of September 2017There are seemingly endless opportunities for fishing at this time of year right on our doorstep, especially when the weather has been so kind to us.

Great mixed bags of demersals have been coming from 40m and shallower up to around 10m. Changing the areas you fish can result in a very diverse bag such as Brody’s. By anchoring and burleying in shallow, dhufish, sambos, yellowtail kings and enormous snapper have been landed by Brody and crew in recent weeks.

Morley Staff member Kelvin headed out during the week from Hillarys targeting demersals. He managed to get amongst a few top-quality species, and landed a nice sized dhufish on jig. Gummies have been popping up lately out from Mindarie. Anglers have been picking them up mostly from the 30’s including staff member Trent and his crew last weekend.

Joondalup customer and top bloke, Brody, has been having amazing sessions in close on fish such as this stonking pinkie and whiskery shark.

Good size skippy have been caught from Mindarie and Two Rocks Marinas as well as on the 1,2, and 3 Mile Reefs out from Mindarie. Herring and squid have been around in good numbers inside the 1 mile out from Mindarie and Two Rocks, and make for a tasty feed or great live bait.

Big snapper have been firing for those putting in the hours on dusk and dawn both in and out of the Sound. The northern and western tip of Garden Island has been producing some stonkers with the help of a good berley trail. There are also lots of Snapper in Cockburn Sound and with the ban approaching, best get out there asap.

A few bag outs have happened from the rocks with customer Brodie landing a pair of great size fish. Well done mate!

Plenty of smaller tailor have been caught from Swanbourne North. We haven’t seen many large ones as of late but the numbers are definitely there! Keep a watch out when beach fishing, there have been a few bluebottles washing up as of late! If you would rather fish in the river there has been the odd large mulloway caught in the Swan in lower reaches as well as some tailor bycatch.

There are plenty of sharks around, so with the weather warming if you are inclined to do so, now is a good time to get your shark on.

Metro deep dropping has remained consistent with anglers catching good numbers of small (sub 15kg) blue eye trevella and anglers have also been coming across fields of bluefin tuna out wide.

Mek Piggott has been doing well on the squid hitting the rocks bright and early before work.

Peter Zahradka and his son Jordan made it a family event enjoying the beautiful conditions for the freshwater opening.

Customer Darren has just got back from a Coral Bay Trip. He reports having lots of great days at 5 Fingers Reef and off Maud’s Landing reef, catching loads of spangos in his new kayak. Green and white or clear 100mm paddletail plastics were his go to. Thanks for sharing Darren and well done mate.
