Assassin Land Based Fishing Club Competition Report

The latest competition was held south of Perth at Whitehills last weekend, the weather and beach conditions were good but fish were elusive for most of the competition.
Good catches of Tailor were usual as the sun went down mixed with Eagle Rays , Shovel nose and Black Rays. A total of 22 fish were caught during the competition .
Black Rays have now become a protected species and need to be returned unharmed to the water and no longer count for points.

Results on the day were 1st place Andy
2nd place Dave
3rd place Matt

Well done boys , not a lot of fish about but if you put the effort in . you get the rewards.

Next comp will be north of the river , please check your emails and reply promptly.

Ps Winners photos will look better if everybody wears the club shirts ;-)

Regards Vince

 Nice Tailor catch. Whitehills is a tough place to get a feed, looks like a reasonable haul to me.

Didnt know the Black Ray is protected now days.

​ The black (left) and smooth (right) stingrays are now protected from recreational fishing in WA's West Coast and South Coast bioregions.

 

New regulations have now come into force to classify two stingray species – black and smooth stingrays – as protected fish in both the West Coast and South Coast Bioregions of WA.

These regions cover the Western Australian coast from the Zuytdorp Cliffs, north of Kalbarri, through to the South Australian border and it is in these waters that the two stingray species (Dasyatis thetidis and Dasyatis brevicaudata) will no longer be able to be taken by fishers.

If caught, these stingrays must be returned to the water as soon as possible

28th jan 2015,

looks like a good trip/comp boys , bit of company , a few fish , and I dare say a few brews to watch the sun go down!
