In this Shore Angles I thought it might be timely to reflect on my ninth year of fishing Dirk Hartog Island and how the experience has changed over that time.
While we would normally aim to visit the island in April, for various reasons this year’s adventure fell in June. Over the nine years we have visited in April six times and once in each of March, May and June. Every trip is different but in general the fishing has been more reliable in April with the tendency for things to become quieter later in the season, especially for the demersal species.
