Starlo joins us for North-West Safari

 

In July 2018 Steve 'Starlo' Starling joined us on one of our winter 5-Day North-West Safaris, to film a series of episodes for The Offroad Adventure Show.

We had some epic sessions on that trip, including this one on the day we arrived. It didn't take long before our clients and Starlo began hooking up to Tuna, Cobia and big Spanish Mackerel! Watch on to get a taste of what's on offer on our epic North-West Safari landbased fishing tours.

IFISH Drone Fishing for Snapper

 

In May 2019 Paul Worstling from Australia's number 1 fishing show iFish joined us on a Drone Fishing Safari to target snapper from the beach along the coast near Perth.

It was a slow day but we chipped away and landed 3 nice fish between 4-8kg and had a cracker time filming for their show. I can't speak highly enough of Paul, Tom the producer and Sperlo their cameraman! Watch on to get a taste of what's on offer on our Drone Fishing Safaris.

Mid-West Mulloway Fishing

 

On 13th September 2019 my mate Nathan Hutchinson and I had a ripper morning session in the Mid-West fishing the surf for mulloway.
Here's a vid of Nath landing his fish. We landed 3 from 4 and kept 1 each for a feed, releasing the third as well as about 20 other tailor, etc caught on the trip.

8.1kg Landbased Snapper near Perth

 

Here's a short vid of good mate Nath landing a 8.1kg snapper this morning while drone fishing.

Today we went for a casual fish to try new droning ground. After a late start we didn't get a line in until 9:30am, but we soon found the fish. I instantly got smoked by a suspected big sambo, Nath scored this snapper and Mark nailed a whaler shark (released). After that it went quiet, but super stoked to have another new spot to take clients.

Perth metro Tiger Shark

 

On Friday 8th Feb 2019 my mate Nathan Hutchinson and I were ballooning for Spanish Mackerel in Perth when this tiger shark took our Garfish bait off the surface approx 100m offshore.

Believe me, shark fishing is not something that excites me and I'd rather not have hooked it at all. But once we saw it was a tiger we were both pretty excited and the experience of seeing it up close and personal was one we'll never forget.

We had the big girl out of the water for about 2 minutes to remove the hooks and get a couple of photos before walking it back into the surf and beyond the waves where it belongs.

Drone Fishing for Longtail Tuna

 

On our May 2019 North-West Safari we spent a couple of hours one morning driving the coastline dropping baits into longtail tuna bust-ups with the drone.

After losing a few fish we managed to land this one from the school seen in the vid.


Hoping to do a lot more of this over the coming trips this winter!

Landbased WA Dhufish

It was only a matter of time before we got one - Perth Fishing Safaris' first ever landbased dhu caught off the beach drone fishing on 27th May 2019 around 9:30am by lucky client Shayn.

This beauty measured in at 76cm, 6.48kg - a very respectable fish!

 

The fish was hooked 350m from shore on half a blue mack.

9yr Old vs Whitespotted Guitarfish

 

Nine year old Robbie Kilgour is helped by his dad and fellow fisher Liam Briggs to subdue and land a solid Whitespotted Guitarfish of approximately 25kg.

Later that night Robbie's dad Barry Kilgour landed an even bigger Guitarfish of around 40kg, which took him a good 25 minutes to land!

Additional to these fish the group landed over 10 tailor, some big 30cm+ herring and Wobbegong Sharks on their 10-hour Half-Day Fishing Safari north of Perth in January 2018..

 

Quobba Golden Trevally Release

 

Perth fishing Safaris owner and Fishing Guide Robbie Riches releases a Golden Trevally he caught off the rocks while fishing at Quobba Station in January 2018.

During the course of the 5-day Northwest Safari the crew landed Cobia to 18kg, Mackerel, Spangled Emperor, Spanish Flag, Sharks, Blue Threadfin, Mulloway and more! See the photo gallery for pics of the trip.

Old Boys vs Big Snapper

 

When 70- and 80-year old David and Mick hit the beach to check out what this new age Drone Fishing was all about they had one target in mind - a big Pink Snapper!


The pair went tag-team on the fish with Mick setting the hook and turning the fish and David finishing it off. What a way to celebrate David's 70th birthday (yesterday), which this tour was gifted to them for by his daughter.


The result was 7.6kg of west oz pink snapper. Awesome stuff, well done fellas!

Gaffing Cobia off the Rocks

 

A short video of Perth fishing Safaris owner and fishing guide Robbie Riches Robbie's gaff shot and landing of customer Nauveed's cobia off the rocks on our January '18 Northwest Fishing Safari.

 

We landed 4 cobia (and lost many more) on that particular trip while fishing at Quobba Station, the best being 18kg or 40lb in weight.

During the course of the 5-day Northwest Safari the crew also landed Mackerel, Spangled Emperor, Spanish Flag, Sharks, Blue Threadfin, Mulloway and more! See the photo gallery for pics of the trip.

Tailor Fishing near Perth

 

The Tailor have been biting their heads off this summer north of Perth, with many trips resulting in big catches of Tailor. This particular trip they were biting from the first cast of the day around 4pm up until we left at 10pm, with the boys from Perth hills landing around 40 Tailor, 4 Mulloway to 102cm plus a Wobbegong Shark.

This particular fishing tour, our evening Beach Fishing Safari, is our most popular fishing trip It runs from 2pm ex Hillarys Marina car park and we return around midnight

9yr old catching Tailor near Perth

 

9yr old Robbie Kilgour has fished with us on our Half-Day Fishing Safari several times with his old man Baz. Here he is in action, doing a splendid job pulling in a nice size Tailor. Each trip he has landed 6-7 Tailor plus a 120cm Shark and a 25kg Whitespotted Guitarfish (as seen above).

Baz and Robbie prefer to release the fish they catch, but sometimes we keep one or two Tailor for bait.

Tuna and Sharks Feeding on Bait Ball

 

See those little blue bullets zooming in and out?
They are 8-12kg Longtail Tuna! And we drone out clients' baits into schools like this on our 5-day NW LBG Safaris!

Given the shear number of sharks you'd think there's no chance of hooking a fish... But for some unknown reason we are yet to hook a shark from one of these bust ups, only fish. And once you hook up (usually a tuna) the sharks aren't even interested. However we have had some dramas with sharks once we get them close to shore.

Frothing for the next trip!!

Carpet Python Catch and Release

 

After an epic evening session on the Herring, Tailor, Mulloway and Wobbegong Sharks we came across this beautiful Carpet Python in the middle of the track on the drive back through the sand dunes.

Sunset Beach Fishing

 

This short vid is a summary of a fun session four clients had on the tailor and mulloway in early March 2018. The guys landed about 15 tailor and 2 mulloway which is pretty much an average session for our Half-Day Beach Fishing Safaris out of Perth.

 

The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all. The guys kept 5 Tailor for a feed and released the rest including the two Mulloway. Above you can watch a video of Doug releasing his mulloway.

Fishing for Greenback Tailor

 

March/April is great for big greenback tailor along Perth's surf beaches.

 

This video shows some of the action experienced by 4 clients on our Half-Day Beach Fishing Safari on the 16th March 2018.

 

Autumn is also one of the best times to land yourself a big mulloway from the surf. We consistently land school mulloway in the 70-100cm size bracket year-round, however Autumn-Spring is our favourite for bigger fish.

Mulloway catch and release

 

March/April is great for big greenback tailor along Perth's surf beaches.

 

On the 10th May 2018 Nathan booked a Half-Day Beach Fishing Safari to himself. With the last remaining light dwindling the fishing turned on, with Nathan catching and releasing 3 mulloway before 7pm. After that we missed and lost about half a dozen mulloway runs plus a couple of shark bite-offs. A cracker night with a champion bloke.

 

Autumn is also one of the best times to land yourself a mulloway from the surf and is our favourite time for bigger fish.

What a day it was on Saturday 12th May 2018 with these 4 blokes. Fish from the very first cast on stickbaits and plastics. Everyone caught and lost salmon, with two of the guys landing 5 each.

 

Big thanks to Stilly from Bluewater Mindarie for his knowledge and assistance in planning this trip. Also a big thanks to Che Carson for his insight and to Recfishwest for supplying lifejackets to keep everyone safe.

Spanish Mackerel: NW Safari May '18

 

Customer Jonathan hooked up to the fish of his dreams on our May 2018 North-West Rock Fishing Safari.

After a few days of bad weather we got a chance to send out the balloons for a crack at a Spaniard. It wasn't too long before Jono's line went tight. As line started peeling off his reel the battle was on as Jono started working his mack towards the cliff. This was Jonathan's first ever mack and possibly his best catch to date. The boys also got stuck into some cracking reef fish during a couple of memorable sessions bait fishing the wash.

How To Remove Mulloway Jewels

 

How to locate and remove the jewels (otoliths) from the head of a Mulloway/Jewfish. This is a relatively small mulloway at 83cm. It was 1 of 3 mulloway landed by clients that night, the other 2 were released.

 

Mulloway grow much larger, but the process of removing the jewels remains the same regardless of size or species. All fish have otoliths, however they are relatively large in mulloway compared to other species.

 

If you're visiting Perth Western Australia and want to come and chase Mulloway, Tailor and Sharks from the beach, get in touch with us via our Contact Us page and be sure to check out the Gallery page to see what we've been catching!

Customers David and his two boys Campbell and Hudson joined fellow customer Nathan for a Half-Day Beach Fishing Safari on 4th October 2018. Between them they landed about 20 tailor to 68cm and 2 mulloway around 95cm.

 

Both mulloway were released to fight another day, which is always great to see.

If you look closely you'll see a mother Humpback Whale and her calf breaching in the background. Fishing views at it's very best!

 

Our next trip to this ledge and more targeting cobia, reef fish and mulloway is on Dec 5-9. That trip is fully booked but we do have a few spots left on the December 16-20 trip. The cobia run should be in full swing by then.
