Fishing Western Australia

is almost a national pastime.

Fishing Western Australia is one of the most rewarding experiences that you will ever undertake because of the abundance of beautiful beaches and top class fishing spots that are available up and down the entire coastline not to mention the wonderful inland fishing in the pristine waters of WA rivers. There are literally 100's if not 1000's of exotic, exciting and productive fishing spots for unreel adventures that any keen angler will love and enjoy as they pull in some of Western Australia's big game and sport fish.
If you love sport fishing as I do then you will love fishing in Western Australia waters.

Most of the Western Australian fishing locations are no where near fished out as there are too many of them and not enough of us and plenty of exciting game fishing.

You can catch anything from small Bream, Flathead, whiting to huge Trevally, coral trout and Marlin and even gigantic White Pointers between 4 and 5 metres in length when fishing Western Australia. And you will be able to do this in a large number of differing and diverse fishing locations throughout the Western Australian water ways.

If you are doing a bit of game fishing I 'Dunno how you'd go reeling in a big Blue Whale with a rod and line though!! Never tried it myself.

Seriously, off our coast and in the rivers and other water ways  the game fishing and sport fishing here will easily be the most exciting angling expedition of your lifetime. Yep! it really is that good mate.

My son in law Greg after doing some game fishing with the catch of the day, A Coral Trout in 1 hand and a tinnie of beer in the other. Greg and his mates love fishing Western Australia. You might for instance decide to go to Broome for a weeks game fishing and when you get the bag you want of Dhufish, Coral Trout, Spanish Mackerel, cod, snapper and Sailfish you might then decide to try your hand and your muscles reeling in the big Barramundi out of Kununurra in the Kimberley as part of your fishing Western Australia experience.It'good stuff because lb for lb Barramundi are a real challenge and there's plenty of them waiting to test you out in the Ord River near Kununurra.

Fishing in Australia is not all about WA as our other states can and will show us a great time and some of the fishing hot spots in Queensland are hard to beat.

Fishing in Queensland is close to the world's best. The many fishing destinations from the far north coast down to Brisbane, the Gold Coast to Noosa almost guarantees that anglers fishing in Queensland will catch a big haul of class fish from the mighty marlin to Snapper and other wonderful table fish.

Fishing in Queensland's lakes and rivers will provide a bountiful supply of trout, perch, redfin and the ever lusted after barramundi.

Fishing in Victoria both from an inland and a coastal perspective is magnificent. Trying out the mighty Murray river when fishing in Victoria  is well worth your efforts as Murray cod the biggest fresh water fish in Australia can be caught from Wodonga to Swan hill and Mildura and all the way down the SA part of the river. Lake Eildon has good fishing and the mountain streams that flow into it are full of rainbow and brown trout. Port Phillip Bay is an anglers mecca as is the rest of the Victorian coast line.

Marlin Fishing

Marlin are found right down the Eastern seaboard from Cairns to Victoria. Tasmania which depends on the on warm currents which flow down from the Kimberley region in WA for it's marlin and other pelagics.

Recent reports have marlin sighted off the Tasmanian coast and the same is happening of the Perth coast just west of Rottnest Island.

These mighty fighting fish are located on the Western seaboard from the very top in the kimberlies to the bottom at Perth and Albany in the south west. In some places at times they can be taken off the beach or rocks but are infrequently found in ocean waters less than 100 meters deep.

Blue marlin can often be landed using big lures, but numerous marlin have been taken drift fishing with live baits off the coast of New South Wales and other places. The top Marlin hot-spots in Western Australia include Steep Point, Dirk Hartog and Dorre Islands (hard to get there though!) + the Quobba/Cuvier coast north off Carnarvon, and the oyster-laden ledges around Coral Bay, Exmouth, Rowley Shoals, Dampier and the North West Cape.

It's true to say that the largest marlin are found off the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns to just north of Brisbane.

But WA comes into it's own within the 100kg to 200kg class with great numbers being boated.
