When you going

When are you going to exmouth. I have not really done any switch baiting but i do understand the idea of how it works. Tease the fish into the strike zone then throw a bait into its mouth and hang on. I am going up to exmouth myself in november. Towing my boat and another mate is bringing his. I am going up about the 13th and returning 21st. If your going to be there than let me know. Might be able to team up to find the fish. I am mainly going up for marlin and sailfish.

If you could give me a bit of info on the comp that would be good. Leaving those dates as it works with work. If its worth doing the comp might consider going up early. You taking a boat or have one up there.

ok mate
my apologies i just got the brochure the competition commences on the 17th and concludes the 19th. to enter the tournament you must be a member of the EGFC or be in accordance with a current GFAA i think if you are part of PGFC you are OK to enter but you should call up to make sure. you can get -Kurt Decker(president) on 9949 4360
-Jeni Lerch(vice president) on 9949 13 15
or-jo decker(secretary) on 0408 892 018
if you speak to Jeni she will give you the run down if you are interested, she works in blue water tackle aswell so she can tell you all you need to no about fishing the area, she is a highly respected fisherwoman and has alot of knowledge on the water! if u fishin the gulf u are restricted to 10kg line class and outside u can run what u like on your reels.
myself, im going up with my friend and i think we mit be hiring one of the blue water boats and going out on that as i did last time and did OK... so mabe if your up there then we can organise something. ill spk 2 u soon
regards jonya

I go up on the 13th and return on the 21st so will be fishing the comp i think. All depends on the cost of entry and what prizes are on offer. Thanks for the numbers and will contact them for entry forms.
