As some of you might know ffrom Abbey's recent report, 'Land down under' I am in Australia at the moment, Cycling around the country while trying to catch some fish along the way! I've put up a few photos of how things have been going since Abbey left me in Perth.

Theres lots more at

Hope you enjoy, All the best, Scott

Big Pink snapper that took a soft plastic while fishing Out of Perth on my friend Bens' boat.

My mate Ben with a double header of Silver Trevally (skippy) on the ultralight rod. Great fun with the right tackle. We managed to catch over ten species on the small rods in a couple of hours, including a huge long tom which after a long airbourne fight threw the hooks at the side of the boat. It was an amzingly colourful fish..with bright yellow beak unlike the ones I have seen in Indian waters.

Ben took me out on the boat for some high speed jigging for Samson fish. We only managed to get a couple of small ones. Unfortunately none of the 20kg bruisers came along to play!

Out Squidding, with another mate, Bryan. great fun, again on the light rods. It was a bit of a quiet day and we managed 7 before we turned our attention to whiting and other small edible fish.

This was the view from one of my camp spots. It was up on a a lookout with a 360 degree view. Although illegal to camp here it was too beautiful to miss out on!

My Buddy Lloyd with a lovely Dhu Fish. Lloyd specialises in soft plastic fishing and is quite a pro which is probably why shimano have sponsored him. His buddy and him have evebn managed to take a sailfish on a small rubber lure! now that is pretty special!

Lloyd's girlfriend Elsie with a good Dhu fish caught on a soft plastic lure. Dhu fish are an iconic West Australian fish and are renowned for their eating quality. I had a slow day but hooked a big Dhu just after dark of between 10-15kg. Unfortunately my leader gave way! damn! at least it left me shaking!!!

On a day that was too rough to go out to sea we decided to anchor the boat in the harbour and try for small fish on small lures. 7 or 8 species hit the lures with the main takers being baby mulloway (croaker) which were great fun on the ultralight rods.Eventually we ended up catching at least 150 fish in 4 hours thanks to continuous groundbaiting.

Flat rocks..a famous spot for big Mulloway, Tailor, Spanish mackeral, Sharks, Snapper, etc.

Fishing Flat rocks at sunset..no catch unfortunately!

My first Tailor on a popper! I'd lost one the day before and was pleased to land this one although it wasn't the monster i was after.

Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The next day and a bigger Tailor on the popper. Three managed to throw the hooks before I landed this one. Fishing is done from a reef into the surf break at the mouth of a rive,r so to land the fish in the churning water is very difficult. Big waves, white water, sharp rock, lively fish!

Image

I saw a load of bait fish fleeing for their lives. I had just clipped a shallow diving minnow on and so cast it directly into the maelstrom of white water. A few turns of the reel handle and BANG! A very respectable tailor of 74cm.

Went out trolling for a couple of hours early morning. Although its not my favourite type of fishing one of the rewards was this yellow fin tuna!


Image

The other reward was this Spanish Mackarel that took a deep diving Halco

Hi Scott,
Some fabulous fun you are having there. I know you must be enjoying doing the things you like doing best, that is exploring and fishing.

The range of fishes are amazing but I would love to see a Barra added to this list. :wink:

Heartiest congratulations.

Kindly elaborate on the above.

Thanks guys for the positive comments! appreciated..

Ali..In Australia groundbaiting (berlying as it is known) is widely used when fishing in the sea. Most fishing shops and even petrol stations sell berley in the 1 or 2 kg bags. usually its a fish meal with a high fish oil content. It can also take the form of pellets..

Many people will keep old bait, cleaned fish/squid and use this as berley.In India a good amount of sardines or prawns chopped up fine will be ideal to use. I have used similar to good effect before when shore fishing


A constant trickle into the fishing spot will in theory bring the fish into investigate the source of the oil. Then hopefully your bait will get eaten. can be used from rocks, anchored boat or even on a surf beach..

We used it to attract the fish before catching them on lures

Hope this helps,

all the best Scott
