Dirk Hartog Island

Gday fishwrecked crew

Tides here.

I have been an attendee and devotee of DHI for close to 20 years. I first saw the island during a Rex Hunt Fishing specials many many years ago where Rexie landed a monster tailor off the cliffs. I booked a trip there immediately and cruised up with the brother and girlfriends where we stayed at Urchin Point for 10 days.

Since that first trip I have returned many times each year and stayed in all the different styles of accomodation the islands offers. The islands accomodation each have their individual bonuses but I guess I enjoy the ability to take a 4wd to the island and be in charge of my own destiny, so enjoy the boat villa and camping accomodation. Having said that enjoying the fully catered luxury of the lodge is nothing to sneeze at.

With Dirk Hartog Island now a site sponsor I thought it would be a great opportunity to show a few photos and get some chat going about great experiences on the island

I most enjoy targeting the mighy Baldie and have a few photos from catches over the years

Land Based?

 Are those baldies land based? Great effort. I can't imagine them being fair fighters in amongst the reef.
