Exmouth 06

I thought I should kick off the new forum, especially considering the talk has started to heat up a bit lately with a few reports from Exmouth about the fishing fortunes. We are leaving on July 2nd for 2 weeks, so nearly 7 weeks away until departure. (cant half tell I'm looking foward to it)

We've got Spooled and the Port Hedland mobsters joining us in the 2nd week, which should be verrrrry interesting. Might have to be a few friendly fishing competitions based upon Andy Mac's system, with the points being changed to a beer tab. You had better start casting in the paddling pond paulie. :) Jokes jokes.

Really looking foward to it and as the wise man Gribbo would say:
Dont worry about me man, just worry bout me rods.

Recruiting

Tue, 2006-05-16 14:34

Bloody hell I better start finding some people who can do the job and not drink more than than the amount of baits they put on a hook a day.
I might have to get some of my own sponsorships from the local fish and tackle shop in PH and the cricket club to help pay for the beer TAB. It's not quantity it's quality. This helps me a little!!
I will have Jamesy on my team that must count for some handicap points. Surely!!
Yes exmouth is defineitely on the mind for the next few weeks and finishing that last week of work while Ads( you lazy $#@%%) is fishing Exmouth will be difficult.

we kind of planned our trip around moons, tides etc.
From my discussions with Ryan, from his previous trips this appears to be a real good time of year.... :-)

Salmo- are you camping the other side of the gulf. I remember reading an article in one of the wa mag's recently(may have even been written by you......?????) about the fishing over there, sounds interesting....

Gulf Fishing

Tue, 2006-05-30 13:32

Got Salmo's Exmouth Gulf fishing video, bloody good I must say! Unfortunately I'm not sure how to rip it off that version of dvd so can't put it up for everyone to see. :( Also its rather long, but the whale footage is magnificent, I will see what I can do when I get some free time.

Port to Exmouth

Tue, 2006-05-30 14:23

We are set to roll out of Hedland at 2:11pm on July 7th 2006, be in Exmouth mid morning Saturday. Have got the rig sorted and am downright jealous of the fish that are being updated on this website. They are awesome fish. I have just rigged all my pushers and divers but those fish might need some larger leeder. Back to the drawing board. Ads you got my daisy chain sorted??
Keep the photos coming boys!! good job

FW pissups is defineitely on the go and Ads James maybe a concern for your camp. Not on the fishing stakes but on the bottle. Rum pigs just take new meaning with that fella.

Rowley Shoals

Tue, 2006-05-30 14:45

I am off to the Rowley Shoals for a week in July. I understand the weather can be a bit blowy this time of year but hopefully the sails should be out in force. I will be fishing across the change in moon so it will be interesting to see if it goes off out there.
I have never been out to a place such as this so I cant wait to see what's on offer. Some nice GT's and sails with plenty of others will be well worth the wait and the effort.

Good fishing and good luck on your journeys fisho's

Next time you at Oceanside Deefa, ask Gribbo about his efforts with staggering home from the Pottie. Picture this, the Exmouth sidewalk walking back to the cape caravan park, with 20 meters of grass on one side and the road on the other. Now theres this waist high sign in the middle of the grass, under the lights, with nothing but grass in sight anywhere. Nothing in sight except for this one random sign, perfectly placed in the middle of the grass as plain as day for anyone to see. So Gribbo, one extremely pissed pub patron comes strolling through after chucking a slash in the bushes. All of us have walked ahead about 50 meters until we hear this boom, crash and body hit the floor. Poor Gribbo had walked straight through the sign and performed a perfect 10 stack with about 3 commando rolls in front of us, we all just about died with laughter when he said, where the FU*K did that come from..
Anyway, when we finally got back to the park it was time for him to hug the tree and give it some nutrients.

Definately a highlight for one of the funniest pissed Exxy moments.

As Gribbo would say,
Don't worry bout me, just worry bout me rods. :))))

Thu, 2006-06-01 00:06

Well wish I could , BUT

I'm looking at selling the trusty 00 ute and getting one of them new rodeo's thay they are giving that chick away with .

I could put her on the street to pay for the car , should only take a couple of months to pay the rig off with miss Wilkes working for me ??

I should get 13 or 14 K for my ute and only need 3 or 4 thou more for the ute and tray .

I just love that the country boys are hunting down VS utes to turn into outback utes and being a 2000 model it's the last of the VS model..

Andy Mac's Exmouth trip

Thu, 2006-06-01 21:34

Maybe, possibly, probably I will be up there from 16th June to the 24th June. Just need to find someone to look after all of my clients while I am away and I will be confirming arrangements. Have a house and hired an 8m cat with brand new twin 115 4 strokes on the back.

Would have loved to take my boat up there but the trip was planned on very short notice (I am a fill-in for a 5 man crew). All this talk of Exmouth got me sucked in and now I can't pass up the opportunity. Shame no-one else will be up there then. I'll certainly let you guys know the low down on my return. Not that I will do any good. Don;t know the waters as well as I do back home so it will be a few educated guesses as to where to go. Any pointers in the "RIGHT" direction would be appreciated. Pics and video's will be on the agenda of course.

Cheers

Andy Mac

I knew all that gloating I did just before we departed for the infamous Exmouth would come back to bite me in the arse!!

Bloody hell there is a lot of you heading up, wonder if Exmouth knows what is going to hit it - much worse than any cyclone I reakon.

Andy it isnt real hard in Exy mate, for mackies just troll the 25-40m dropoff south of the passage at Tantabiddi and while doing that keep an eye on the sounder and mark any good reefs to bottom fish later. Nice and simple and works a treat.

Well well well Andy, some great news indeed. I look foward to indepth reports of where the fish are, what you caught them on, what minute of the day they were caught, how they were cooked and if theres any new hot backpackers chicks in the pottie for when the hound dawgs get there. Lol. Sounds like you got a pretty awesome rig setup, hope the fish are co-operative. :))) Like that advice Gully, sounds like a winning combo.

Hottie backpackers

Sat, 2006-06-03 16:01

I'm getting too old for all that sort of stuff, however just for you guys I will be telling them all that if they see any guys wearing these black shirts with fishwrecked logo's on them, they are from paramount pictures latest production group, shooting a new Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaghey movie and will be filming up here over the next 2 months. My team are just the location scouts, but the filmimg starts in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for the guys as you might be able to meet some of the stars. Several of the guys will be in town with their agents and body guards.

Play along boys it might just be an angle to work, even better if you deny it, by saying "who told you that?" and "I can't comment" just to arouse their suspicions and curiosity.

Oh to be young again!

Cheers

Anyone else like me, wish they were in Exmouth with a few flatbackers about now?

Sheesh is it getting warmer in here or is it just me???

I coulda swore that said Flatbackers Andy! ;o)

Ohh well, I guess that just leaves one of lifes quintessential unanswered questions!

If the Hokey Pokey - IS what it's REALLY all about, should I put in in, take it out, or just shake it all about?

One of lifes great unsloved mysteries - just like the summer migration north of grey nomads & spring hatch at the beach of flatbackers! ;o)

got back from exxie yesterday arvo.weather was great .the wind was up in the mornings but by 1 ish in the arvo it would drop and drop till about 6 when we would putting the boat on the trailer looking around at a sea that was like one big wobblie mirror.
got into a few fish .did a lot of trolling picking up a nice 5kg rankin a few small mack tuna ,doggie mackies dropped what looked like a 20kg plus spaniard before i could get a gaff into him.we did score a nice 10kg broard bar mackie which we gave to a couple people at the van park also trolled up a nice coral trout plus a cobia.while ab was playing the cobia i was winding in the other lure and a big whaler [shark] hit the lure which i havent heard of before .got him boat side then did my best to bust him of.
bottom bouncing we picked up some good size spangled emperor ,another 2 coral trout and heaps of charlie courts.all in all it was a great trip which ended way to soon.special thanks to rumpy for taking us out in his dads BIG boat

ive got those 2 spanglies on vidio.with Ab playing his and jack hooking up on my rod .both fish landed within about 20 seconds of each other.jacks got some good footage of the cobia coming in with me in background trying to get a shark boatside. there was a hell of alot of tidal movment .making holding bottom quite a challenge
we did troll a few skirts for a while of tandabidi with no luck .tried a gar as well but not a sniff.weather was great though ,
the tanda ramp is still in need of another 10 or so metres of concrete.watched a few boys pulling a 18ft plate alli plus 4wd nissan out with the help of a PTO winch ,digging the crap out of the sand below the ramp

trolling

Mon, 2006-06-19 19:00

the 2 trout in the pics above wre caught on bait in about 15m of water the rankin was on a 7m or maybee 8 m deep diver lure caught of the back of hellby bank in at least 25m of water .the boat was just put into neatral while jack was pulling in a little mac tuna. so ide say the boat was only going a about 2knots when the rankin hit it .jacks still got a few pics of another trout which was trolled up on a 7m diver in about 12m of water.i have noticed before that the trout seem to like a slow troll speed .have seen em caught on a turning boat when the lures are slowing on a fairly tight 180degree turn significantly slowing down the lure

Well, we are off next Sunday until Thursday week, 3rd until 13th. Believe Honsu is up there at the moment, not sure if Andy Mac's back yet. Big Kev's up there until Friday I think and then there's Salmo. I Think Deefa and Ryan might be heading up around the same time as you thou Shizz, not 100% thou.

Just got back last night

Sun, 2006-06-25 12:58

Well it lived up to all my expectations, had a ball, lengthened my species list and even had a big marlin connected for a very short space of time.

When I get myself organised I will post a few pics (didn't take too many - too busy catching fish) and if I can get the right software convert a few vids for everyone to see. Unfortunately the vids were taken using a borrowed camera and I don;t have the right drivers etc installed.

I will open up a new forum and give you all a run down on what to catch and where.

Cheers

Andy Mac

Do "normal" mobiles not get coverage up there? I woulda thought they would. Does anyone know if they do? If they do, i'll PM ya my mobi...

Your challenge is accepted btw, we'll have to set aside a night for a serious session, praps tie it in with a shore fishing day the next day, you dig? Drinking us old boys under the table.....pfffffttttt!!!!

telstra only

Tue, 2006-07-04 11:49

Deefa,

Only Telstra has coverage. I was the only mug with a Telstra phone so I reckon my bill will be massive this month.

SAT phone

Tue, 2006-07-04 19:06

As soon as SAT phones become more affordable thats what I'll be getting , phone available anywhere anytime .

AND it won't be long till they are affordable.

anywhere anytine?

Wed, 2006-07-05 15:20

Ya dreamin!

I have 2 sat phones and neither are worth a knob of nannygoat poop IMHO!

Spent 3 days at the abrolhos islands once with no signal at all!

Turned out their was a power failure at Meekatharra (over easter) where the down station recieves the data from the sattelite!

There was a backup generator there - but some enterprising passing truck driver had stolen all the diesel outta the tank, and they couldn't get anyone to drive a tanker to Meeekataharra for 3 days to refill the tank bye which time the power was restored anyway!

Such is the reliability of globalstar!

When it works it's OK - but you wouldn't want to be treading water with noah's circling while your dialing up for help! ;o)

They are better than nothing but about as reliable as two tin cans with a piece a string between em - don't let any salesman tell you otherwise!

They are as dear as poison too - calls at 3 bucks a minute soon add up, because your paying for all that sattelite delay time, plus the time for the other end to answer etc etc, soon as your signal hits the sattelite your paying whether anyone answers at the other end or not!

Also - you pay if anyone rings you (incomming calls)@ the same rate.

I have a few bills from global star here for over 2K closer to 3K...
Best get a healthy cashflow, if you want to pay to run a sat phone is my advice!

Theres a lot of things you CANNOT do on a sat phone too - for eg - you cannot talk to any number that answers with a computerised voice! (i.e telstra banks etc etc) because the sat delay time trips the computer into thinking you didn't hear understand and starts repeating the menu again when your data finally gets thru and so on and on you go in a contiuniuos loop trying to trick the computer into letting you talk to a real person - due to the sat delay - all of this at $3 a minute!

It's a friggenn scam designed to empty out your bank account!

I.e. you might want / need while on that offshore island to pay your monthly sat phone account with your credit card, so you don't get cut off! But because their system is rooted - you burn up your last available credit trying to make a cll to pay the bill - talking to a computer at the other end that can't handle the sattelite delay to allow you to pay your bill!

How screwed is that - you end up broke and cut off because the company selling the sat Phone can't program a computer to allow you to talk to a real person to pay your bill!

Sat phones are FAR from what they are cracked up to be!
They are better than nuthing but barely!

Best to understand the pitfalls before you spend the $ IMHO!

Cheers!

Re mobile coverage

Wed, 2006-07-12 11:09

CDMA work up at Exmouth...you don’t need a Satphone (agree with Trouty I had one for work a while back and it was crap....then the company Skysat went bum up....

You can hire Satphones in Perth if the wife is desperate to talk to you (check up on you more like it)

My CDMA works 60km east of town and around 10km west (furtherest I been west)
My laptop is has Centrio CDMA so I can use it while we are up there....good to check the lastest weather reports....might see if we can do trip updates for the suckers stuck at home!!!!!

yeh i think they are pretty common the ole easterlies, but oh well, 2 more days ;) bit of wind never stopped me, after fishing the north mole in 50knot winds and 5 meter swell on the rocks i think a bit of wind is the least of my worries.

oh yeah, and one more for good luck......... TWO DAYS!!

Now going into work shut off mode, good luck gettin tackle advice of me for the next 2 days heh my head will be elsewhere.
