Salmon still out in force

Albany Extra - - Sport - Joachim Az­zopardi

Surf fish­ers have con­tin­ued to catch bag lim­its of salmon at times from se­lected beaches along lo­cal and more re­mote beaches.

Salmon in the 3-7kg range were caught on bait and lures this past week at Salmon Holes, Cables, Mut­ton Bird Beach, Shel­leys and Low­lands.

Four-wheel drive en­thu­si­asts are be­ing urged to check the beaches for very soft sand and washouts be­fore en­ter­ing af­ter the re­cent big swells and seas.

Born­holm has been pro­duc­ing tai­lor some morn­ings and evenings while the gut­ters at Cheyne Beach and Bluff Creek are hold­ing big skippy.

French­mans Bay and the rocks at Mid­dle­ton Beach have been pro­vided some nice King Ge­orge whit­ing some days.

More KGs have been picked up through the in­shore wa­ters of Oys­ter Har­bour, which sur­pris­ingly still had clear water ear­lier this week.

The big­ger boats that man­aged to head off­shore scored a few red, queen and pink snap­per as well as break­sea cod and skippy.

Ex­pect sam­son fish and yel­low­tail king­fish to start show­ing up closer to shore dur­ing the en­su­ing weeks. The King and Kal­gan, and most of the neigh­bour­ing rivers, are fish­ing well for black bream, mostly rang­ing from 25cm to 35cm.

King Ge­orge whit­ing were caught at the mouth of the Bre­mer late last week and there were also a few picked up at Wil­son In­let.

Tor­bay, which re­opened re­cently, was teem­ing with ju­ve­nile salmon and herring.
