The Jack-Off fishing competition is on again for summer.

Yes, this little mangrove jack comp is a winner and you could be too by entering at Tackle World Exmouth.

You receive a brag mat on entry and any jack photo on the brag mat is eligible with the winner taking home a cash prize.

In the past few weeks there have been a few 46, 49 and even 56cm jacks caught.

Queenfish are an awesome sport fish that can give you a stack of fun with acrobatic leaps and fierce competitive strikes on surface lures.

Hayley Dellar caught a ripper this week and we had to show readers just how big they can get, because this one is sensational.

Most people who catch these, release them because they are not the best eating but if you want to take one home, make sure you eat it fresh.

Whiting have been on the chew again and showing up in big numbers along the gulf beaches.

These are another example of the healthy gulf we have here .

We do not recommend getting more than enough for a meal so that you or others can enjoy another session catching these tasty small delights.

We expect there will be some big marlin smashing lures in the coming months off Exmouth. With this will also be crews in small and large vessels.

If you’re keen to have a crack, but not sure where to start, drop in and ask any of the staff at Tackle World on any day. It is achievable in a small boat on a budget, or you can join a charter on a larger vessel, or even join crews in events.

The Exmouth Game Fishing Club’s next event is the Tantabiddi Camp Out on the first weekend after New Year’s Eve.
