A few fish since my last report

Havent posted in a while so thought I'd post a few pics since my last report on here. Working locally now has really limited my outings, working 5 and half days a week and the young fella at 19 months old keeps me pretty busy these days. If the weather is mint on a friday I tow the boat to work and head straight to the ramp on knock off for a quick sunset flick and a brew.

Snapper numbers seem to be picking up inshore last few months. Have been finding great numbers on the sounder but getting them to eat is a different story, have managed to pluck a couple here and there though.

First fish of the season I was trolling a small plastic for some herring for fresh bait to try my hand at some gummies when i sounded over some solid fish in 6m. I harassed this school for a good 45mins before finally getting an eat. 90cm long and the boat anchored nearby was stoked when I offered for them to take it home.

Headed out with fellow member scotte last week and had a great little session tagging and releasing numerous snapper and also keeping a couple fish for a feed.

Headed out with fellow member Uncle and Blake from Compleat Angler Rocko to target salmon. Nothing crazy by salmon standards but we boated a few and had some laughs. Timed our run perfect as the season was almost non-existant this year, apart from a few stragglers on the northern beaches, the schools disappeared as quick as they arrived, it was all over within a week or so.

Have been having some pretty crazy sessions doing some metro popping. Hard work, but the results are awesome. I have never fished for GT's but I imagine this is about as close as it gets, especially out of Perth. The surface explosions are pretty insane, with sambos climbing over each other smashing the popper, eventually hooking up sometimes just a metre or 2 from the boat. Unfortunately ive lost 8 lures since the last fish I landed, these guys play realy dirty in the shallows. Our last successful session saw us land one kingy out of 3 hookups.

Old mate underneath waiting for the next cast.

A few other bits and bobs..
Im guessing the sounder shot with the solid arches hugging the bottom are big pinks or mulloway.
