Mackerel1000 – 2015: the year that was.

Spanish mackerel numbers this year were thin and scattered with few divers reporting regular sightings. Nonetheless some good fish were landed and entered into the MACKEREL1000.

This year’s event, which started in February and ended in October, attracted a field of over 50 entrants. Next year’s will run from January 1st to June 30th. The first mackerel entered was shot by Ryan Power at Yallingup in early February and the last in October by Caleb Moore at the Monte Bellos Islands.

The largest mackerel shot and winner of the main prize of $1000 was shot by Joe Petrovich in August up at Carnarvon.… Read more

Dampier Spearfishing Classic report

The Dampier spearfishing classic was organised by the WA Undersea club and sponsored by GT Diving, Our Exmouth House and Rob Torelli Down Under.
