  1. That would be an unreal sight to see tailor jumping on to the shore! You're almost wanting me to redirect our tip up north! Though I think the Mrs is quite keen on Esperance. Thanks for the tips & also about the safety side of things - I'll keep a close eye out for any smashed glass/signs of trouble as we go around.
  2. Awesome mate thanks! I think we're starting around Esperance/Cape Le Grand and making our way back around the coast to Perth. Appreciate the tips!
  3. Thanks mate for the response
  4. Hi there Raiders. I'll shortly be taking a bit of a 4WD trip with the Mrs around Southwest WA, and wanted to get any tips on likely spots to wet a line. This won't be an all out "fishing holiday" - but I should get a line in most days. Places we'll be stopping for a night or two: Busselton, Margaret River, Pemberton, Albany, Esperance. Also if you have any hot tips on places to camp that would be much appreciated! Dave

  6. Good on you mate!!
  7. Stockton has probably been best on the north side, also around Merewether & Dudley & Belmont to the south.
  8. Mate sadly not, this is right in the surf break!
  9. That's a good idea mate may give this a try!
  10. Good on you mate! Shame about the lost fish, there have been a few mulloway & small sharks coming out of the harbour the moment so maybe you hooked on to one.
  11. What a frustrating game fishing can be at times. Right now there are hundreds and hundreds of salmon roaming our beaches, they're just barely feeding at all! At times they've been schooled up so thick that their backs are showing out of the water!! It's quite a sight, though frustrating to catch. I've tried almost everything, even dropping down to ultra light gear & 3" tiny plastics. I'm still getting one or two per session on a small metal slice along with some tailor, but those fish are never caught from the "main school" of fish running the beach. It's quite a sight to see a wave form with hundreds of salmon looking at you! If anyone has any ideas let me know, in the mean time I'm just enjoying being out there!
  12. Good on you mate a few nice fish there!
  13. Hahaha! Mate I still have people swear to me that aussie salmon are no good to eat! Each to their own I guess.
  14. Very nice mate well done!!
  15. At Newcastle? Drop me a line next time mate & I'll join you if I can! All the best for your session
