Catches are there in­shore and out

Albany Extra - - News - Joachim Az­zopardi

Deep drop en­thu­si­asts, who ven­tured to the edge of the shelf and be­yond when the weather al­lowed, got among plenty of ha­puka and red snap­per.

The coral lumps be­tween 60m and 90m pro­duced rea­son­able catches of dhu­fish, pink snap­per, sam­son fish, break­sea cod and red snap­per.

King Ge­orge whit­ing fish­ing has been fairly good in lo­cal in­shore ar­eas in­clud­ing the sound. Squid catches have been im­prov­ing in these parts and there are plenty of sand whit­ing, her­ring and skippy about. Surf fish­ers have mostly been catching sal­mon on the beaches east of Na­narup.

The skippy have been big­ger east of town, while her­ring and sand whit­ing are in good num­bers at lo­cal beaches as well as those ex­tend­ing to­wards Cheynes Beach and west to Den­mark. Pink snap­per were be­ing pulled in at McGearys Rock fol­low­ing the open­ing of Wil­son In­let. Mul­loway seem to have moved out of the Kal­gan but King Ge­orge whit­ing have been found in its up­per reaches.
