Fishing report 15th March 2019

The reel fishing Spot with Jye Sheridan

Land based: Anglers wading the flats in the estuary have still found good numbers of yellowfin whiting along with herring and salmon trout. People fishing the rock walls and jetty’s around the Mandurah channel are finding nice sized yellowfin whiting along with small sand whiting, herring, salmon trout, medium sized tailor and some big skippy. In the cut the jetties are producing herring in the mornings and night, juvenile salmon, whiting and some skippy. Off the estuary and ocean ends there has been some nice sized tailor caught just on dusk and into the night.

Best baits:  worms or coral prawns, mulies.

Beaches. Theres been a few good tailor caught along the golden bay stretch, along with a fair few small to medium sized mulloway. People fishing the southern stretch have found some nice sized tailor, school sharks and occasional mulloway from Tims Thicket to Preston.

  • Best baits: mulies and mullet fillets

Crabs: land-based scoopers have reported that just on dark or dawn is still the best bet for a feed, further down the Harvey Estuary at island point and Herron point. Boat-based people have struggled at times but found best results drop netting in the deeper sections off drop offs in the peel inlet.

Boats: Some very good size tailor and salmon trout have been caught trolling in the channel markers in the estuary. Dhufish, snapper, breaksea cod and some nice sized baldchin continue to be caught out of 30-60 meters of water plus some big schools of southern bluefin tuna once you get around the 20-30m mark and beyond.

Best baits: squid, mullet, coral prawns and smiling jacks slow trolled for the tailor.
