Good catches

What are you likely to catch? Prepare and keep your eye out for:

  • Luderick (cooler months)
  • Bream
  • Whiting (warm months)
  • Flathead (warm months)
  • Squid (cooler months)

Best bait

Make the most of it with yabbies, herrings, wrigglers, bloodworms and pieces of mullet fillet and bait.

Best tides

Last of the run out and during the run in.

Best gear

A light eight-foot to 10-foot, six-inch estuary outfit matched with two-kilogram to five-kilogram line.

Care for our waterways

You can help protect our waterways and fish stocks, by doing a few simple things:

  1. Dispose of all rubbish, bait bags and tangled fishing lines thoughtfully.
  2. Practice catch and release, or only keep the fish that you need.
  3. Observe bag limits.
  4. Reporting any sightings of noxious fish (such as tilapia, carp and gambusia) to the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
