Mixed Bag at Point Halloran
« on: Tue 27 Aug 13:02 2019 »
It was a slow night last night at Point Halloran. A few bream, a couple of good whiting and a tarwhine. I have also caught a lot of sharks there this year - black tips and bulls. I am not fishing for them so there certainly must be a few there. For those interested in a bit of land based shark fishing you could certainly do worse than giving it a go there on the bigger tides when the weather warms up.

    Worms and yabbies on a No.2 and 4 hooks for whiting and 3 x 3/0 with a small pilchard chasing some tailor which seems to be highly effective at catching sharks this year despite the lack of wire.

    Thanks Daryl. Makes sense now, you say you were also fishing for Tailor. I thought you were using that rig for Whiting and Bream.Would have been a monster Whiting :)
    So you are finding more sharks than usual. Do you normally catch the black tips there?

    Hey Mick,

    I usually get one or two sharks over the winter months when I have fish Point Halloran. This year I got nine - seven black tips and two bull sharks. I fished there less than in previous years as well.

    Side note Daryl, back in the seventies there was a huge Tiger Shark that patrolled that area,he was given the name Brutus he patrolled the area between Ormiston Peel and Wellington point and was regularly reported to be seen in the Courier Mail,I encountered him once off Wellington point in a 10ft flat bottom tinny crabbing, bloody scary at that size,I froze and didn't pull a dilly for an hour.
