Back at Mandy

Post by Young_gun_fisho » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:39 pm

Arvo trip to mandorah jetty produced, started off with a couple of tarpon around 45cm on livies. Had a few other runs on the dead herring, however these ended up in bust offs. Soon after that, had a bit of fun with the sharks, landing a 2 and a bit later model. Then the fun began. My mate hooked up to a good queenie on some new livies, which went tail walking instantly. After a 10 minute fight, he landed the beast. It went 82cm to the fork, and 93 to the tip. He was happy with that, while I was green with envy. Soon after however, I hooked up on a livie to a bigger model, and a similar fight ensued. We landed the fish, and I was stoked. After some terrible trips and luck for the past month or so, I had found my mojo. The fish went 86cm to the fork, and 97 to the tip, making it my PB. Not a bad arvo :) 8)

Top effort young gun enjoy the spot while it is still one of the best LB structures we have mate, thanks for the report 8) well done on the new PB too that's a decent sized queenie :mrgreen:

Great way to ruin an even greater spot. Progress hey ....bl..dy awesome isn't it????
Also I wonder what the environmental impact study said about the migration patterns of several species in that area???? ''

''Acceptable levels of total carnage and destruction'' no doubt ???? :fu:

Bugger all current will flow past it once they put these rock walls in and if they are anything like the one at cullen bay they are a great spot to break an ankle or lose a set of car keys especially at night :lol:

Yeah, while at first it may seem like a good idea, that current that rips past is probably one of the things that make it such a great Landbased pelagic spot, or a great Landbased anything spot really. Also, I agree with you that this will effect several species that go through that area. And I'm sure a lot of people enjoy fishing and relaxing off a jetty rather than killing them self on a rock wall to get to open water.

Looks like the rock wall will have a footpath, if so will be a good spot to fish.

Nice fish BTW :mrgreen:
