A 50-year-old man has been rescued off Mandurah after setting off an Epirb.
He and his dog went fishing yesterday morning but failed to return.

The Ballajura man was found this morning about 16 kilometres off Mandurah, and was taken to Peel Water Police Base for a medical check-up.
The man’s dog died during the ordeal.
