If that is the Ammo jetty then well done mate. I've heard of Shark Mackeral coming from there in the past but with the warm waters at the moment, a Spaniard was only a matter of time.

Great catch. That's right near my house and I'm missing out.... That's a cracka LB metro fish.


The best reason for doing what's right today is tomorrow.

Thats just plain stupid!!!

Wed, 2011-03-09 13:58

Land based mackie, yes Steep point and Quabba. No Ammo jetty in Perth!! What will happen next!

Thats just plain awesome and 2 dream off. Must have caused a stirr on the jetty when it went off.

Now I am waiting with baited breath for a Metro Coral trout, or even better boys and girls, start blasting the reefs near Rotto with Poppers and stickies and wait for the GT to pounce.

Well, theres certainly a fair few of them at the Abrolhos, so its not all that far for them to travel. Same with the redthroats and they're occasionally caught here. GT's might require a bit more warming (i.e. time...)



Awesome mack pudzz. Gotta be happy with that.
