Danes have a great time

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tack­le­world Ex­mouth

We are blessed. The loom­ing cy­clone missed us with only a few small squalls and rough seas with mud­died wa­ters in the gulf and mixed oceans on the west side.

The rain was a wel­come re­lief for gar­dens, while vis­i­tors cer­tainly shouldn’t have com­plained about the cooler tem­per­a­tures ex­pe­ri­enced as the low passed close.

How­ever, the hu­mid­ity af­ter it passed was a bit sti­fling.

The best part about cy­clones for fish­ing is that the calm be­fore the storm usu­ally has the fish bit­ing ex­tremely hard and then af­ter it seems to be a frenzy too.

Lo­cal op­er­a­tor Josh Bruynzeel cer­tainly did well on the Jack­son Kaiken stick­baits with big gi­ant trevally and span­gled em­peror tak­ing to them with ease.

Josh had a cou­ple of Dan­ish vis­i­tors fish­ing for seven days who caught rankin cod, gold spot trevally, yel­lowfin tuna, Robin­son sea bream, Span­ish mack­erel and more.

To say they were stoked is an un­der­state­ment and we are sure they will be back again soon. An­gus Fog­a­rty is eight years old and man­aged to land a 6.7kg blue­bone while camp­ing on the west side us­ing crab for bait.

Luck­ily, An­gus and his fam­ily got into the good fish­ing while the weather was fair, be­fore the low ap­proached.

Many campers around the west side had to take shel­ter, but thank­fully the low did not cause too much stress.

Many other re­ports this week have been pos­i­tive be­fore low, rang­ing from honker co­bia, yel­lowfin tuna, loads of blue mar­lin and small black mar­lin.

The va­ri­ety of species avail­able in these wa­ters is cer­tainly a good draw­card for an­glers for the up­com­ing ma­jor event of GAMEX.

En­tries are due in next week and we rec­om­mend get­ting in early to as­sist with co-or­di­na­tion of the event.

There is a new in­cen­tive for an­glers this year, with new an­glers of­fered free en­try and ex­ist­ing an­glers an op­por­tu­nity to get 50 per cent off their en­try by bring­ing in new an­glers.

It is the one event in Aus­tralia that ev­ery an­gler should ex­pe­ri­ence at least once.

All in­for­ma­tion can be found via gamex.net.au

An­other event that Ex­mouth Game Fish­ing Club is host­ing this year is the Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Bill­fish Tour­na­ment.

This event is a three-day tag and re­lease bill­fish-only event and held the week lead­ing up to GAMEX.

We ex­pect to see an in­crease in vis­i­tors, es­pe­cially since the re­sults of the last tome AIBT and GAMEX held to­gether in which 2399 bill­fish raised, 1708 hooked and 904 tagged for the nine days from about 50 boats.

MAIN AND BE­LOW: On Strike Char­ters had some Dan­ish vis­i­tors re­cently and the smiles on their faces could not be wiped as they caught co­pi­ous fish on Jack­son stick­baits.
