Thought I would finally sign up and introduce myself, been lurking around for a while picking up advice and info from the site!
Moved here from the UK about 2 years ago and pretty new to fishing, started that just over a year ago, slowly learning and improving a little but with mixed results. None of my mates in Perth fish. so working things out mainly from the info on this website and through trial and error.
Started with the usual herring from the rocks and have had some success there, also managed a few flathead from the river (plenty of blowies along the way of course). Also caught a few other small species from the rocks but nothing that exciting. Most notable catch so far was a snook which will tell you something about my skill level :)
I have a small boat (although not much good as a fishing boat), and have had a go out near Carnac trying to catch whiting a couple of times, but seemed to just pick up Trumpeter and Wrasse. Should also mention my boat driving is about as good as my fishing.
Recently been attempting some beach fishing for tailor but have failed to catch anything on a number of occasions, partly due to large amounts of seaweed (excuses, excuses), but also not sure I am even casting into the right places (dark coloured gutters?). Even tried to catch some whiting from the beach this weekend and failed at that as well, so have been getting a bit frustrated, but will persevere until I figure it out!
Sorry, bit of a ramble, hopefully meet some of you out and about fishing at some point!
