Post TAS Attack - no orange sliders in Perth!!
I did grab a good supply of sliders before I made the move to Perth but no-one warned me about a:) giant northern western blowfish aka "bolt cutters" or b:) pelagics with razors for teeth and finally c:) staghorn coral. Just had to order some more from NZ but a little pricy at $15 additional each for postage grrr
If anyone is planning a visit over here anytime soon give me a shout and save some room in your kit for a stash.
Oh yeah - It's every bit as amazing as you can imagine - I need to get out more so I can post some pics and trip reports.
Here'a a taster

Shame. I was there recently. How is the fishing in WA versus NZ? May be moving over at some point in the future.

Fishing is pretty different. There are some monster snapper here but much harder to target than back home. They tend to stay out wide during summer months and come in about this time of year. Aside from that the variety of species is out of this world. I've hooked everything from snook and coral trout to a marlin sized sailfish. The ground out from the west coast can be flat and 10/15m deep far and wide - especially around Perth while up north you start to get into the coral bommies. There is a solid group of kayak fishos over here - prob 90% use hobies in some form. I've been lucky to have met up with some awesome yakkers who have given me loads of help - have really appreciated it. I reckon I'm one step past a novice WA yakker after a year here - that's coming off about 10y experience back home. I've had to get used to coming home with no fish much more often than not

cheers. i hear mixed things. seems like when it's good, it's very good, but when it's bad... it worries me when i see people proudly holding up a couple of kahawai/salmon like they are the catch of a lifetime. nothing against kahawai at all, they're a fantastic fish, but you know what i mean.

what about the wind? it's a bloody windy place. do you find that the number of days you can get out in to open water is seriously limited?

edit: about the sliders, talk to this guy: http://www.kavemantackle.co.nz/
good gear, low prices. personal service. i'm sure kevin would sort out fair postage to aussie for you - i have no involvement with the business other than being a happy customer.
