10/10 Big Pink, Dhu, KG, BA & Burley

Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

A mate from the East that has been receiving my WA Perth Metro photos came West for work.  I have copped a constant “barrage” of messages over the last month about taking him fishing in WA as his itinerary needed to be planned.  No mate, you have to fish the conditions over here and when the wind is right, we can go – as long as it is dawn or dusk.  Long range forecasting and constant checks of the weather meant lots of communications, and today was likely to be good as are the next few days.

It turned out as forecast, even though the Hillarys real time weather conditions (wind change strength) were checked all day to confirm, and we headed out at 4.30pm.  Proven ground, baits and rigs, good burley, the Minn Kota holding us on the spot, and the expectations of quality fish were high – although it is never a sure thing.

Perth Metro delivered again!  780mm Pink (5.5kg), 540mm Dhu, 440mm KG, 330mm Blackarse (although shrunk to just over 300mm when measured at home) and a couple of big Snook for the burley.  Lots of “undesirables” and returned undersized “quality” for an awesome afternoon/evening/night on the water.  How good is this place?

Nice mate, did Deano make you up a new filleting bench?

Salvaged by Dean from a demo company - would have cost a heap to buy.  Much nicer than the old timber bacteria attracter.  That pink was a good way to christen it!
