THE WATER SER1 EP4 – COCKBURN SOUND TAILOR, HERRING & PRAWNS
In Episode 4 Steve Correia fishes in Cockburn Sound off Fremantle in a hardcore tailor fishing test of boat and tackle.
Steve and Greenie will then head to Rockingham to show you somewhere great to take the kids fishing for Herring.
Then, on sunset, we’ll meet “The Prawn Whisperer” who shows you how to dive for massive prawns.
The lure Steve is using is the Halco Hamma. These are very effective as they “suspend” in the water column as you crank them down.
Steve Correia: “I used to fish for tailor a lot with poppers and that’s fun but when I switched to minnows, particularly suspending minnows like the River2Sea Triho, I got a lot more hookups.
“Trihos are sadly hard to find now but the Hamma is a good replacement and has caught me some great fish.”
The herring segment is great for those who have kids that like to fish. Herring jump, attack most baits and small lures and really are WA’s most important little sportfish.
Steve and Greenie show you where to hunt for them and, when you find a good spot out of the wind, how to berley up and keep them right where you want them.
