Ocean Reef to Two Rocks Inshore
Nick has invited one of his viewers on the show this week, and local angler Shannon Edwards takes them to a spot called Two Rocks where they start fishing in 15-20m of water for Snapper. Shannon throws in some small pieces of burly to get the fish active and they drop their baits out of the back along the burly trail. Shannon hooks up first and has a tough fight with a Jewfish which is a great start to the day. Nick then hooks and the first Snapper, no monster but most welcome. More Jewfish and Snapper follow for both anglers and Nick shows us how to rig his baits. On their second trip out with Shannon, he takes them to another reef to try some lure fishing, but the swell is too strong to get over the back of the reef. Thinking there will be Snapper below the breakers they start throwing soft plastics out and in no time at all Nick fights and lands his PB Snapper. Its pretty gnarly fishing but the guys are convinced there ae more fish in this rough water, so persist and Nick catches another big Snapper. On the way back, they do some trolling and Mark hooks and lands a big Shark Mackerel to cap a great day's fishing in Perth's waters.
