I have spent a lot of time in Perth this month so not a lot to report. Those that have been getting out have done very well. One local got his personal best red at 12kg, a nice fish!

Tracey and Phil were back for a second shot at getting into some good fish. This time Tracey brought her parents and Bill got a very nice red emperor. Phil was gobsmacked with his big cod that was just under a metre.

20th August 2016

A few nice bream from the river for the juniors, all kept alive and returned at the end of the weigh-in.

Weather was a bit ordinary and only a couple of boats went out. Dhuie for Luke, Frank had eight fish of 8 species

And a couple of baldchin groper for Steven.

Bite of the Month

Phil caught his biggest cod this month fighting it all the way to the top not knowing what he had hooked until it hit the surface.

I award Bite of the Month to someone who catches the best fish from one of my boats.
