Recfishwest is pleased to announce all of the metro Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) have now been deployed and are in position ready to fish, providing great pelagic sportfishing options for this autumn.
This means there are now 14 metro-based FADs deployed between Rockingham and Two Rocks, in water depths of between 130-350m, as well as FADs off Cape Naturaliste.
To celebrate the great fishing opportunities at FADs currently between Cape Naturaliste and Two Rocks (more to come at other locations soon), we’re giving away some quality prizes thanks to Richter Lures and Madfish Gear simply for catching a fish at the devices between 1 March – 1 May and sending in a snap of your fish!
HOW YOU CAN WIN:
1) Visit any of the FADs (Can find their exact GPS coordinates here);
2) Catch a pelagic sportfish (via boat or spearfishing) and take a photo of your catch that reflects our responsible fish handling practices (linked below) with the FAD clearly visible behind you. This means avoiding images where there is blood visible, cutting the fish’s throat, having your fingers in the fish’s gills, holding the fish vertically, etc).
3) Message a photo of your catch to our Facebook or Instagram page detailing where and when you caught it;
4) Keep an eye on our socials when we announce the winners after May 1!
