Considering a move to Perth/WA from NZ
Hello all. I'm new to the forum and have a question for you guys. The Mrs and I are considering a move to Perth/WA from NZ. I have a mate over there and we have visited a few times. Love it. Got in to the surfcasting and caught a few fish. Also did a charter and caught a nice dhu fish.
At present, I am based in the Northland, NZ and the fishing is pretty bloody amazing. Snapper, yellowtail kingfish, kahawai (salmon) plus seasonal game fish are all there for the taking. It is rare to come home without a decent feed. I catch at least one 10lb plus snapper on most trips and don't claim to be the best angler in the world! I fish from a jet ski and only use soft baits or jigs. Can't remember the last time I did any serious bait fishing.
In general terms, how does your part of the world compare? I get the impression that the fishing wouldn't be quite as good, but don't know if this is fair. Also, would the soft plastics and lures do the job? How do you get on with sea conditions. It's a pretty windy part of the world. I imagine this limits trailer boat activities?
Particularly interested to hear from you if you have fished in both places, but any comments very welcome.
