Damn Stax.  Now I have a new destination to add to the "lottery list"

 

That looked amazing.  Hope you and the bride are well.

Can you post the coordinates just in case some of us win the lottery or became enemy of the state and have to flee the country or finds a flying saucer...or something

Sorry for the delay

Co-ordinates are as follows

For fishing 25-46'48.64S 112-58'12.03E

Beach 25-52'14.03S 113-06'46.23E

Dirk Hartog is a 10-12 hour drive from my place in Perth. Then a $600 barge ride (per car) to take you to the island

The island is about 70 miles long 15-20 miles wide with a population of 20.

There is a homestead (ranch) (http://www.dirkhartogisland.com/eco-lodge/) fancy and great place.

Camping is basically free.

If you come I will take you.

And yes the fishing is as good as it gets.

Look up my post from 14 years ago...

Summer months see the most Pelagic fish in the area, including all manner of Travelly, but be warned it is very hot during the summer months with expected temps to be in the 50C mark. Rmember there is little or no shade so you are in the direct sun all the time and it can be sapping.

This place fishes well all year round, and I have fished there during every calendar month. It still get hot even in the "depths" of winter. Still gets well into the high 30-40C mark.

And is that a Bonefish in your hands? Caught right there in that area. See attachment.
