They're Big Close to the Shore in WA

After a weekend of big sharks, big prizes, big tailor (nearly really big), big sambos and a big jumbo (see: http://www.fishwrecked.com/forum/weekend-captures-including-great-white-sort-capture), the conditions last night and this morning allowed us to get out there again.  Pleased to report a few more tasty big things.

Filled up on cray bait last night with the highlight being a 32cm tube squid.  Unfortunately no size pinkies but getting close now with a couple close to 40cm.

Went out to pull and bait the pots this morning and got these from 2, with a few berried female throw backs.  Double jumbo, with a weight well over 2kg each.  Not many more now and the pots will come in so we can chase the mackies, instead of pulling pots.

With conditions so flat this morning, we spent it sounding for new ground.  A few really good nearshore marks were found, for future early morning and evening sessions, with a near half metre King George coming off one. 

Perth nearshore metro delivers again.  How good is it where you can have a little boat but still catch big desirable things

Wrasse

Sambos love them, and the fillets and frames are good pot fillers.  Don't usually keep them but there was a purpose.  Same with the skippy, and we chucked a heap back.
