Yeah , more to the east seems to suffer a bit, we will head west and try to find a clear gutter somewhere.

South coast report , with a warning!!!

Thu, 2015-06-04 11:49

Yeah sorry mate was at work, We went down , with the quads , not really expecting anything that great , to find some really nice, weed free gutters.

Both ends of the beach , lets call them river end , and white point end had salmon during the day , really really nice ones ( back runs?)

and caught some small soapies ( thrown back gently) and some middle size tailor in the late afternoons.

 

I can only plead with people , that if you visit the white point area to do the right thing.

Access is usually through private propery, and as its the closest bit of the south coast accessible to Perth, not in a national park , we need to respect it

as to hopefully have access in the future.

If I got reports of vandalism, rubbishing etc myself , I would start splitting wigs personnally, as its a great area for camping and fishing on the coast, most of which

we have lost full access too.

Pardon the french , but how f---g hard is it to take your rubbish out, and keep off the fragile coastal vegatation?.

There are enough soft c--k groups out there trying to ban anything remotely fun and free, without shooting ourselves in the foot as well.

Rant over , a great trip it was , enough memories  to get me through  a cold Perth winter!

Emu Springs

Some magic spots along that section of the coast. You have to be able to read the signs on where to fish as a lot of the beaches only have poddy whiting and small herring but those with good gutters can contain all sorts of good fish. I found fishing at night seem to produce the bigger fish, just the case of doing the exploring during the day, find a spot and set up for the night.

Did you come across any paper nautilas shells during your travels up the beach, they usually come up after periods of strong southerlies and big swell conditions. You have to be there when its happening as they are so light and fragile they break up easily and blow away

Lost cowrie?

Thu, 2015-06-04 08:17

Didnt see any nautilas  carnarvonite , but found a middle size cowrie with some minor shell damage, didnt know they were down that way.

Also saw some strange plastic bits , yellow and white ( mh370?) and the usual broken cray pots, floats and thick thick blue netting, is it shark net

or some from overseas?

Shark net

Thu, 2015-06-04 12:09

Shark net is monofilament, usually green, red or clear and with a mesh size of approx. 7. 1/8 to 7. 3/4 inches pulled tight . Looks to be about 50lb line. Possibly from a deep sea fish trawler or scallop boat.

Never found paper nautilas shells anywhere else, most times you have to look at where the scrub meets the sand as they are blown up the beach.

 Last year I got quite a few

Thu, 2015-06-04 20:09

 Last year I got quite a few paper natilus all in the same weekend, havent seen any since the 70's. We used to find some at Warren Beach that wernt as big but had a bigger corregation patten to them. Emu springs is the only beach Ive seen the phosphorus glow in the sand/wave wash at night time. Thanks for the report Quadfisher. I havent been for a couple of months but might be worth a look.
