METRO: There are still quite a few salmon around with small groups passing through at the moles in recent weeks and a few taken in Cockburn Sound. Steve Hart and Robbie Riches headed out from Ocean Reef and found plenty in 12 metres of water, with a big school under their boat.
Fishing soft plastics they also managed a couple of nice pink snapper and two samson fish. One of the sambos went 27kg and offered a great fight in the shallow water on 9kg line. They also found big numbers of snook to a metre long. Reel Force Charters has been doing very well on its deep dropping trips, putting clients onto bass grouper to 30kg, hapuka to 20kg and blue-eye trevalla to 27 kilos in 400 metres.

METRO: Pink snapper continue to be the main fare for offshore anglers. There have been plenty around inshore reefs, including south of Rottnest Island and along the Three-Mile. Fish to nine kilos have been caught regularly.
Dhufish have been good from Ocean Reef to Two Rocks, with fish to 16kg caught. There are a few samson fish showing up in close as well and there was even one caught at the North Mole this week. There have been a couple of surprise shark mackerel caught in metro waters in recent weeks and divers have seen spaniards. Skippy are fishing well and respond strongly to berley around offshore structure, while the great run of squid around Perth is continuing.
