METRO: Well-known eastern states fishing personality Al McGlashan has been in town and helped with tagging pink snapper in Cockburn Sound for Fisheries research.
They had no trouble finding spawning aggregations of fish up to a metre in length, leaving Al very impressed with local management of the Cockburn and Warnbro sounds snapper fisheries, both of which are currently closed to protect the spawning fish. Al was blown away by the sight of schools of the big pinkies circling on the surface.>

METRO: The rock lobster run hasn’t gathered momentum yet. Divers are doing well but many people are yet to deploy their pots. The whites are expected to start their run in the next couple of weeks.
It’s a similar scenario for those who like crabbing in the Swan River, with blue swimmers already pretty active. Those diving at night have done very well, with reasonable numbers being taken in nets. There were more reports of giant herring turning up in the Swan this week for those in the right place at the right time. Remember, they are poor eating and don’t handle well, so try to release them as quickly as possible to protect this fantastic fishery.
