Esperance Fishing Report

Boats

The crews who put in the miles and ventured well east of town scored bigger nannygai than those who worked the waters south of Woody Island. The waters east of town have also been producing better catches of pink snapper. Southern bluefin tuna in the 10kg to 20kg range have been encountered between 70km and 80km offshore. The small boats continue to do well on sand whiting and squid in close.

Shore based

The Taylor Street Jetty has herring, squid and garfish most days while Bandy Creek Boat Harbour is worth a try for King George whiting, herring, black bream and skippy. Salmon Beach, Blue Haven, Fourth Beach, Nine Mile and Roses Beach were among the spots where salmon were picked up this past week. Skippy in the 2kg to 3kg range have been turning up at Thomas River and Dunns. Some nice mulloway have recently been caught at Fourteen Mile, Thomas and Rossiters.
