The fishing line is probably the most important tool for any fisherman. Without it, you can’t possibly haul in a catch and would have to resort to other methods like net or bare hand fishing. If what you are after is the ultimate outdoor experience, complete with camping and the thrill of recreational boat fishing in Perth, you should know the right types of lines to bring.

Illegal fishing represents an ever-constant threat to Australian aquatic species. To curb the problem, Fisheries and Marine Officers are always on the lookout for illegal fishing gear and practices along Australia’s coasts, among many other violations. Back in May, a Port Hedland man was caught with an illegal fish trap on the bow of his boat. The offense netted him $500 in fines after a magistrate at Port Hedland Court found him guilty. That’s not all—the perpetrator was also required to pay another $1,100.80 because of previous charges filed against him when he was apprehended last year for not having a current Recreational Fishing and Boat Licence, as well as having three undersized northern mulloway on his boat. According to sources, the man was fully aware that it was illegal to use fish traps yet proceeded to use them anyway despite his knowledge of the potential violation.

Many anglers can’t get enough of kayak fishing, which is a cheap, exciting and healthy sport that lets you set your own pace while you hunt for magnificent fish like mackerel, snapper and tuna. Fishing kayaks are also extremely versatile; how far you can go from the coast of Perth really depends on your set time frame and paddling ability. However, as with all types of water sports, kayak fishing also comes with risk. Here are some safety reminders: Surprises by the weather. Forecasts are not always accurate. Don’t let your guard down even when the water appears placid and the winds calm; something unexpected can happen at any time of day. Always wear a PFD and don’t forget to bring a portable waterproof VHF radio to keep you updated about potential weather disturbances.
