Perth Sharks

I've been thinking about big noahs off Perth - i read in a post the other day that some guys who capsized and paddled into shore were looked at by a white off City Beach.

Has anyone ever had a hooked fish taken by a noah in metro waters, two rocks, mandurah, etc? Not just by big ones like whites, but by any sharks at all?
Or ever heard of it?
What about spearos - anyone ever heard of sharks coming round to speared fish?

Maybe I'd rather not know... ;o)

have a look around the jigging grounds when the samsons school up ;)

there are some pictures of 25kg samsonfish with only their heads left, and some wicked shots of sharks smashing schools of... i cant remember, skippy? and hitting samsonfish.

Allan Bevan has some of the pics on board, and they are very impressive.

have seen a mako 6 to 7 foot 11 mile out last summer from mindarie circled around for 2 min or so and got bored. nothing exciting happen.but im sure there there!it was around 38m of water on one of our favorite lumps. we had a burley bucket full of old mulies i am sure burley increases your chances of seeing a noah but im quite happy not seeing them at all as our boat was quite small.

Tapout and I had a solid shark buzz us on the 3 mile about 2 months ago, musta been all of 8ft if not bigger. Saw on one of the other forums that someone balloned a little bronzy off Ocean Reef rocks the other night.

I remember speaking to Nick Hocking from FWA a fair few times about the beasts they get out deep, bloody monsters that scare the living beejeezus outa ya when they decide to come up next to the boat.

Hey all,
I got that little bronzie at oceanreef last sunday. Thats the 4th ive managed this year, The other three wern't much bigger. Ive been trying very occasionaly to catch a big perth metro shark over the last 3 1/2 years. Started using 300m of 30lb mono and 80lb steel trace. After getting spooled twice, once in approx 30 seconds and having several traces destroyed switched to using a senator loaded with 50lb mono 8 metre leader and 150lb trace. Im hoping this will hold up, though so far i havnt been able to hook another monster.

I didn't realise sharks were so uncommon down there. We usually get at least one shark every time we go out up here!

Do you butterfly the mullet?

Fri, 2006-11-10 18:01

Or do you leave the backbone intact?

I would suggest the butterfly job if you are using a balloon to keep it in the top of the water table, that way the bait will "swim" in the current and offer maximum chance at a big shark.

Nah i usually use whole live or dead baits, only because they last longer.
