Fishing in Augusta, Western Australia

Augusta fishing in February 2015. It takes about 4-5 hours to get to Augusta in the south west of the state.  We stayed at Flinders Bay Caravan Park in Augusta for our fishing holiday in Augusta.  It is a great spot, very well run and dog friendly.  (There is a dump site for toilet cassettes at Turner Caravan Park for those requiring it.)

Skippy Rock is about 3kms from the caravan park and parking is very close to where you fish off the rocks.  The flatish rocks didn’t appear to be very dangerous but the day we were there the sea was relatively calm.  There is a hook imbedded in the rock to attach yourself to with a rope if you do feel at risk.

The day was mild with no wind. We had prawns and blood worms as bait which seemed to please the fish no end.  We used a running sinker but I noticed others had different regular (hook and separate sinker) tackle.  There was a little weed but you could usually get free of it. The anglers with two hooks on the line often got two fish. There were constant bites all day and many fish.  Some were small and thrown back but many were regulation/keepable and such fun to catch.  We think the blackish fish are black bream but are not sure.....tasted excellent.  Zebra fish were also caught as were other ones we didn’t recognise.  No puffer fish.

At the beach around to the right of Skippy Rock the herring were biting.  My husband also caught a trevelly there off the sand.

A diver came in while we were there with one enormous crayfish and a small one.  Lucky for us, he gave us the small one.  We were very pleased with that and very popular back at the caravan park sharing it with our friends......entree size only. Augusta is a great fishing spot and we have caught fish there every time we have been there, so I thoroughly recommend it.  I’m not sure how the winter fishing goes but summer is definitely rewarding. Take your sunscreen and hat although the temperature is much milder than Perth on a hot day.
