The Reel Fishing Spot with Jye Sheridan 17/02/2017
The Dawesville Cut: * flowing with brown water past few days from all the rain, should clean up in the next few days
• Herring, skippy, squid, king george whiting, yellowfin whiting, and tailor off the estuary ends
• Best bait: prawn or squid fished on either a sinking rig for the whiting or skippy and a burley cage rig for the herring, for the tailor a mulie under a float or unweighted depending on tidal flow
The Mandurah channel: * flowing with brown water past few days from all the rain, should clean up in the next few days
• herring, yellow fin whiting, skippy, tarwhine, tailor and crabs
• Best baits: whitebait or anchovies for the tailor, bloodworm for the whiting or prawns or squid are more popular baits and mullet in drop nets for crabs.
Peel Inlet + Harvey Estuary:
• tailor, herring, yellowfin whiting and some nice crabs
• Best methods to catch them: for the tailor a smiling jack trolled slowly or a mulie thrown after dark, mullet in drop nets for crabs or scooping late afternoon.
• Tims Thicket to Preston Beach: some good tailor, occasional mulloway and plenty of whiting and herring during the day. The best bait is a Fremantle scaly on a weighted rig.
• Halls Head to Singleton: tailor, big mulloway, yellowfin whiting and herring. Best bait is a Fremantle scaly on a weighted rig.
Black Bream: both rivers are fairly flowing with fresh water from all the rains so best to try target the canals dotted around Mandurah for a better chance.

For the boaties: snapper, dhufish, baldchin groper, breaksea cod, samson fish, kingfish, southern bluefin tuna, king george and skippy
