Looks like a few long nights....

Mon, 2011-11-28 09:09

What areas are you looking at to get those sort of sizes Blue?

I'll settle for whatever I can get I guess. I would like to catch another decent size Mulla and I will be targeting green-back Tailor north off Gero. I may be getting a hip replaced so that could limit my capacity to fish for a while.......

Mon, 2011-11-28 09:20

Hi Vince - looks like the big Tigers are all SOR, the big flatties can be caught around metro and SOR / NOR and the Bronzies are going to be a hit & miss experiment. Have some ideas as to what i want to do - whether it is going to work is another story - but; if I dont try I wont know.

Waiting for the waters to get a little more warmer!!

 

(Good luck with the hip - no easy decision and recoup time is long. Take it easy!)

Doc recons 6 weeks on crutches and then I should start getting out and about. Needs to be done though. I have been hobbling around for a while now. Legacy of active sporting days of the past........

Good luck with the Shark efforts. I'd run a mile seeing something like that on the end of my line LOL.

Another big mackie at steep in January or wagoe later.
And a decent mulla, with a few trips to lucky bay wagoe and kalbarri planned I hope I am increasing the odds not to mention plenty of metro sessions

Bornholm Beach

Mon, 2011-11-28 11:12

In my younger days we used to fish Bornholm Beach for Salmon. It's between Albany and Denmark. It's a bay inside a reef and when things turn on they really do turn on. Salmon hunt the Herring into the bay and the sharks feed on the Salmon. It's unreal! I recon this may be the place for you guys chasing sharks although it's a fair distance is quite a rugged road in. I have enough trouble tugging a decent Salmon in let alone a large shark.

Tue, 2011-11-29 12:37

Land based I am intent on nailing my first metro sharks. Bucket list is -
1. Gummy Shark
2. Bronzie
3. Mulloway from the beach

From the boat I would love to hook into -
1. Spanish Mackerel
2. SBT
3. 15kg+ Dhufish

Most of all I just wanna go fishing!!

Edit - After seeing barneyboy's pics of those massive YTK's I am pretty keen on hooking into one of them. Not expecting a monster like that though!

There's a few for me....

Mon, 2011-11-28 16:43

Currently looking for a big ass rod and reel for the coming late nighters to soak baits etc as the weather warms, but:

  • My first size mulloway
  • A couple of decent sharks
  • Pinky of around 8kg from my rock when the season breaks, and to leave the sambo's alone!
  • and a couple of nice sharks for the plate, around the 1-1.5m mark.

Lately been doing ok with richters/metals targeting tailor, but would love to get them locally around 70cm mark though (biggest this season to 45cm so far)

LBG Wish List

Mon, 2011-11-28 17:03

- Solid Dhuie off the beach

- Big Pink Snapper

- Big Mulloway ( got a solid fish last year)

- Solid Bronzie

- Giant Herring would be unreal but they don't turn up too often down this way.

- 10lb tailor would be something to crow about too

 

Santa's gonna be damn busy rounding those up.

I just want the time to get out. By this time last year we already had about half dozen mulloway and sharks from the beaches. Weed has seemed to stick around longer this year but by some reports may have pissed off in the last week or two so want to try again this weekend. Ive got some new sharking gear to try out this summer so fingers crossed and good luck to all!!!

 WITHOUT the hassle from sharks every hookup!

No worse feeling than losing your first cobia to a shark after missing the gaff shot. :(
