Cervantes - New Years

We all know summer isn’t the best fishing weather but it’s nice to just get out there or get away. My cousin Jimmy asked if I wanted to come up to his holiday house again in Cervantes and with a twisted arm I hooked up my boat and headed up there!

I enjoy Cervantes as a nice quick holiday destination and with a lot of family up there over the New Year it was very enjoyable. I took my Baja petrol powered car up also and ran amuck on the oval and up in the dunes!

We had a great time with the ski biscuit, electric helicopter, kites and very relaxing indeed. Fishing was good with a handful of trips out and bagged out on Dhufish and bycatch every trip including baldchin, pinkys and black arse. It was nice to fish half a day (if that) and then head in to clean fish and do other activities!

I stuck with artificial every trip as I do and did very well. My cousin Jimmy got some nice fish also on driftbait including a solid dhufish. It was very noticeable that the artificial’s caught more and bigger dhufish per trip!

I was using a mixture of artificial’s as I do and the standouts were the Abrolhos softplastics both the 6.5” McPaddle tails and the 7” Bullwhip minnow. Due to fishing faster winds & sometimes a bit deeper I opted to use heavier jig heads (TT Headlockz) and some of my dhufish had the softy right down into its mouth!

Thanks Jimmy, Casey, Kids, Steve and Caleb for a great holiday.
