I'm not new to fishing but I am new to fishing in Perth. Years ago I used to live down south, Denmark more specifically, and we would catch sand whiting and flathead without a doubt every time! I would have to say flathead is hands down the most tastiest fish! I could live on it for the rest of my days! One of the fisherman I knew would trade me a kilo of flathead for pies and sausage rolls at the bakery I worked at. What a deal!
Anyway, I would appreciate any handy tips, suggestions and maybe a good spot or 2 where I would be able to fish for some. Legit size and quota per person would also be handy (haven't fished for them in years!)
WA has some complex Laws compared to the rest of Australia (maybe even compared to the rest of the world )
Bag limit is 8 per person per day with minimum length 30cm...
WA's "per day" is 24 hours midnight to midnight...So you could catch 8 by 11:59PM...and then catch another 8 a few minutes later at 00:01AM
Unless...of course, it is logical is it not...if you are catching prawns or marron, then the day is midday to midday...
