Few questions about catch and release fishing from Kalbarri - Exmouth
Im still in the midst of planning a trip from Perth up to Exmouth in July.
I have fished Kalbarri before and know that there is a fair few spots that will allow us to fish Catch and Release quite easily.. along with a few spots that wont, where a cliff gaf of some sorts will be needed.
My questions are for the areas from Kalbarri up. I had first gone with the idea of spending some time at Steep Point, but from what i see there.. its not really Catch and Release friendly and more of a slaughter house that requires heavy line and gafs. Is this the case, or are there areas that would suit releasing fish ( ledges closer to the ocean ). What about the rest of the area up there, is it worth ignoring Steep Point and trying other parts of that Peninnsular??
Is this the same for Quobba? I have booked in there for a few days, but from what i see there should be a few areas that would be suitable and the beach fishing would be great too. While Ballooning is something i would like to try, i dont fancy bringing a 20kg Spanish Mac up the cliffs when i dont have a freezer and only need to feed two people for the 2-3 week trip. A small feed of fish once and while is the idea.
As for Exmouth, from what i have read its the best place for what we plan to do. Am i correct in thinking this?
Any specific areas that would be great for what we want to do. Lots of walking is not a problem, we plan to do HEAPS of lure casting and chase the GT's for a good while.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
