The West Australian Undersea Club is extremely proud to present a new group of FAD’s off Perth to the WA Spearfishing and Fishing community.
The FADs were deployed 8 March 2015.
They can be found at the following coordinates;
FAD 1 32° 13.071′ S 115° 23.289′ E
FAD 2 32° 13.104′ S 115° 24.371′ E
Please respect the FAD’s as a lot of time, effort and money was invested in them.
Do not tie your boat onto the FAD and drift dive the FAD’s only.
These FAD’s are not exclusive spearo FAD’s and line fisherman have every right to fish them also.… Read more

Sign-ons start at 6:10am and I wanted to be there to promote the Mackerel1000.

An hour to load the car and boat with prizes, spearing and boat gear and, weigh-in equipment such as laptop, digital scales and fish bags for the contestants.
