Jacks, trevally on the bite

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tack­le­world Ex­mouth

Af­ter the large falls of rain from low-pres­sure sys­tems in the past two weeks, the fish­ing scene has been rather quiet for some, yet hot for oth­ers.

Man­grove jacks have been on the bite in the creeks and ma­rina, and a few young­sters have or­gan­ised a com­pe­ti­tion to catch them.

It is on March 4 and 5, with lines in from 8am-5pm each day.

This is a cap­ture-and-re­lease com­pe­ti­tion, with pho­tos on a brag mat as proof of cap­ture.

Pic­tures are to be brought to the Ex­mouth Game Fish­ing Club club­house from 5pm-7pm on the Satur­day and 6pm-7pm on the Sun­day.

The cost is $10 for se­niors and $5 for ju­niors.

En­ter at EGFC on Fri­day, March 3 from 6pm-7pm or phone Will Roche on 0475 067 217.

The EGFC held its an­nual awards night re­cently.

Win­ners can be found on the Face­book and web pages of the club.

Club­man of the year went to Ben Knaggs for his con­tin­ued as­sis­tance.

Ju­lian Fox started com­ing to Ex­mouth from the UK about 15 years ago.

He is an avid fly-fish­ing an­gler and has re­turned many times to en­joy the great wa­ters off Ex­mouth.

This year, he fished aboard Nin­ga­loo Sport­fish­ing with Ben Knight and man­aged to get into some great sport­fish, in­clud­ing gi­ant trevally, queen­fish, gold spot trevally, span­gled em­peror, and golden trevally.

Ju­lian also walked the shore­line on many days and will be back again to en­joy the beau­ti­ful wa­ters of Nin­ga­loo.

Lo­cal tat­tooist Danny Est­court speared his per­sonal best bluey at the Mu­iron Is­lands last week.

He took ad­van­tage of the good week­end weather and got out with a few of his mates.

Di Allen from Kal­barri was pleased to get good lo­cal ad­vice from the tackle shop and man­aged to land a large golden trevally and a span­gled em­peror.
