Hill River to Pippidinny Report

Hey folks,


Just a quick report. Went up to Hill River on the weekend with plans of fishing overnight but there was a fair bit of weed around making life difficult. Still managed a couple of small tailor and a few herring. Headed over to Cervantes later in the night and fished the back beach (no luck - full of weed), jetty (snook, herring, nothing bigger about) and up at the flashing light for the rest of the night (nothing but water was pretty clean).


Went to Seabird for most of the following day and fished the main beach for a small ray - not sure what type but had a lot of blue colouring on the fins. A couple of tailor hits but missed the hookups and again the weed caused problems for much of the day.


Finished up at Pippidinny for a sundown session and no luck there. A little bit of weed around but not too bad. The beaches from there through to Club Capricorn looked pretty clean of weed so probably OK for a fish at the moment - esecially given these easterlies we have had the last few days.


Seriously....where the hell is my mulloway????? :-(

Any reasons why so quiet? It wasn't a full moon, was it really windy up there? Did you fish the tides or dawn and sunset?

The weather was all on shore. I think that was a big factor.
