Boat­ies bag out on KGs in clear wa­ter

Albany Extra - - Classifieds - Joachim Az­zopardi

King Ge­orge whit­ing en­thu­si­asts have been achiev­ing bag lim­its of the pop­u­lar ta­ble fish in King Ge­orge Sound and nearby wa­ters.

The Ge­ordies have mostly been in the 30cm to 40cm range and are be­ing found in the clearer in­shore wa­ters.

Squid are also about in fairly good num­bers in these parts, to­gether with sand whit­ing, her­ring and skippy.

The crews, who ven­tured to the 65m to 85m depths in search of prized reef fish, did well on dhu­fish, pink snap­per, break­sea cod, and queen snap­per.

Schools of sam­son fish were also en­coun­tered along with yel­low­tail king­fish and a few sharks.

Beach fishing has been re­ward­ing along the coastal ar­eas east of town where skippy to a kilo have been caught near the gut­ters and reef holes and plenty of her­ring around.

Na­narup has been pro­duc­ing big tar­whine at times, while tai­lor are a chance there early morn­ing and around dusk.

Sand Patch has sal­mon turn­ing and there are still 3kg to 6kg mod­els be­ing caught from the beach at Sal­mon Holes.

The King and Kal­gan rivers are still very tan­nin and, as a re­sult, fishing for black bream has been rather chal­leng­ing.

Try baits and soft plas­tics in these murky wa­ters. The sys­tems east of town are not as dis­coloured but wa­ter lev­els are quite low.

There are still plenty try­ing for mul­loway in the Kal­gan; how­ever, things seemed to have gone quiet on this front af­ter a cou­ple weeks of good ac­tion.
