Geraldton Fishing Report 23.04.2013
The lives in Gero is fishing well for bread and butter species as well as Mulloway to 16KG average fish caught between 4 and 6 KG and with the wind blowing in the right direction ballooning for Mackie’s has been slightly productive you just need to keep in mind that the Cray boats use this area and have a tendency to run over the lines there have been some decent bust offs from some big sharks one report was a 3m tiger shark cut off before the angler lost all his line. Drummond’s cove still has tailor and the odd mulloway going through. Coronation beach fishes well for bread and butter species as well as Tailor and Mulloway sharks are also caught as the sun goes down all through the night. Off shore is fishing well for all bottom species as well as some XOS Spanish mackerel there are Dhuies caught in 8 to 20 m of water with a small amount of snapper and baldies and as close in as 3km, the back of pensioners reef and African reef will get you your bag limits with out a huge fuel bill. The Abrolhos islands fishing well for everything with the odd sail fish out wide with reports of fish aprox 100kg.Tuna and Mackie’s are abundant. The river in Kalbarri has a few mangroves jacks being caught as well as mulloway giant herring and tailor. Off shore there are sand snapper lots of Spanish mackerel Dhuies with the occasional 10 -16Kg specimen snapper and bald chin groper and a variety of other species and this will improve as conditions improve around the end of April and most of May. The good news is that the fishing from Dongara south of Geraldton to Kalbarri north of Geraldton and Gero in the middle the fishing is good and will only improve as we get into the less windy time of year. Farther North past Kalbarri the fishing is generally awesome and this year is no exception so tight lines and enjoy a few good fishing sessions.
