Now that's an interesting capture for that location. Obviously plenty of warm water still around.

Did you pick up any salmon in the same area Sam?

Interesting

I remember this catch we had off Westend and had a heavy mackerel strike 5 minutes beforehand on the 12th of April 2005. You are on a hot streak Sam, nice fish for the metro buddy!!  Maybe they move in close later in the season.

Damien Bolton with a dolphinfish taken in 25m of water out the back of Rottnest on the 12th of April 2005.. Is 2006 going to be as good?

good one sam, ollie a few guys in our club have said they have seen them out in the 90's west of rocko, a long way from the fads, so sometimes just need the right water, just like alfred getting them that day on the weed patch he found
