Dhu trips from last 6 months

Long time member, and long time (3 years+) between trolling or posting on here.....

I've been dhu fishing off Rockingham and Mandurah only a handful of times over the last 6 months, but the dhus have been very consistent in size and numbers. Can't seem to miss! Different spots and areas, All double figured weights. Even the missus has had a ball on a few large specimens.
There's been a heap more large sizes prior to these last 6 months, but don't want photo clog the page up....

Every fish caught on baited jigs (some not even baited, is that jigging? Lol), particularly the vexed bottom meats. They work exceptionally on the silver dollar. Great fun on 30lb gear! I personally haven't used anything else targeting them the last 3 years.

I will be giving the ole dhu fishing a rest for a while, and have some fun manual jigging for deeper critters in 300-500m.

 All these fish were in 45m

Mon, 2022-07-18 16:22

 All these fish were in 45m range off Rockingham and Mandurah. Generally speaking, find the larger models and large schools between 45-55.

Nah, can't say I target them

Mon, 2022-07-18 17:30

Nah, can't say I target them anymore. For me they're too at risk around the sounds these days. Keep ones as bi-catch out wide only, but they're usually much smaller.
