In many areas of Australia, tents are being packed away until next summer as the southern hemisphere winter begins to make itself felt. In the Perth area of Western Australia however, thousands of ardent fishermen are beginning to visit their favourite camping stores to replace old and worn out tackle in preparation for this winter’s fishing–and with it the chance to land one of your favourite sport fish.
For those new to the hobby of fishing, the thought of packing tent, bait and tackle into the car, and getting away from it all for a couple of days with a mate, partner, or family is lure enough, and actually catching any fish is a bonus. For the experienced angler, it’s time to consider favourite areas for fishing good sized mulloway or pink snapper.
Fishing from shore or in a small inshore boat, there is always the chance of hooking a pink snapper for almost nine months of the year, if you know where to look.
