Nice fish Honsu

You must have had fun landing him from the rocks on bream gear. It doesn't look like you have much weight in the leader, so I am assuming you netted it or wrestled it up the rocks.

That's an extra special capture.

Well done.

Metro salmon

Hey there,

nice salmon that... well done!!

Where is a commonly known area, preferably from the beach, in the metro where I can target these salmon while they are around. Is floreat drain any good maybe?? Seeking advice for a rookie :)

Again nice fish.
