Perth Fishing

Perth Fishing

Perth is the largest and capital city of Western Australia. It is also home to arguably the best fishing on the west coast. With natural beauty and Rottnest Island being close to Perth, it is a favorite destination for many travelers and offers excellent fishing from the shallows to the depths of Perth Canyon. .

Inshore fishing around Perth and in the Swan River will produce lots of Barramundi, Black Bream, Flatheads, Flounder, Mulloway, Tailor, and Whiting. Nearshore and on the many natural and artificial reefs around Perth, anglers find good Australasian Snapper, Cobia, Spanish mackerel, and Trevally. .

Fishing offshore of Perth out around Rottnest Island and the Perth Canyon provides excellent fishing, including Bonito, Dolphinfish (Mahi) and Yellowfin Tuna. There is also excellent billfishing with Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and Striped Marlin. .
