Hey guys,

It has taken me a while but I finally got around to posting some photos of my Exmouth, Western Australia Trip.

The fishing was good...not quite as good as I had read in magazines but still much better than I get in Port Phillip Bay! :)

that squid is the same type we get here in morton bay known as a tiger squid , take a look at the stripes on the hood and you will see why they call them tigers.

hi ru 1 2,

we saw a fair few schools of squid from time to time but most of the time we didn't have any squid jigs ready ...or they swam off too quick to get a cast to them!!! they would sometimes attack the flies we were using but we only caught 2 tigers (one is pictured above).

cheers, glen :)

Wow, great pics Glen, it sounds like a top trip! :ink

I think the unknown fish is some sort of fusilier, they are a schooling fish which hang around reefs in tropical and sub-tropical regions. I caught a few little ones off the pier in Broome last year.

And that is definately a mangrove jack, lovely fish!

Hi Jazman, I have been checking the internet for the last hour or (and i almost gave up)...but then a miracle happened!

Pentapodus emeryii (Purple threadfin-bream or Double whiptail)

This seems to be the same fish.

Good Job,

Yes thats a Purple Threadfin Bream, not the most common of catches, and thats a mangrove jack and that looks good on a fly.
