Victor Harbor Fishing

Victor Harbor Fishing

Victor Harbor is the center of the South Coast surf zone. Its fishing industry plays a major role behind its thriving economy. The town is busiest during summer because locals from Adelaide like to travel here to escape the heat. Surf fishing is excellent on the beaches near Murray Mouth. Offshore reefs also create ideal conditions to catch plenty of fish while deep sea fishing. Granite Island is connected to Victor Harbor via a horse-drawn tram. You might see a small colony of penguins on the island that fish in the mornings.

Australian Salmon, Black Bream, Dusky Flathead, Golden Perch, Mulloway, Redfin Perch, Yellowfin Bream and Yellowfin Whiting are some of the species you could catch from inshore Victor Harbor fishing. Great White Sharks inhabit the nearshore and offshore waters. Australian Snapper, Yellowfin Bream and Yellowfin Whiting are found nearshore as well. You have a chance of spotting a whale while Victor Harbor fishing. Southern right whales mate and calve in the waters from June to September. You could also go fishing for Bluefin Tuna if you venture offshore. Hindmarsh River and Inman River are two additional bodies of water in Victor Harbor that are brimming with Black Bream, Carp, Perch and Trout.
