Beach camping and fishing

 Hey guys

Only won't to travel hour or 2 

Would love to try hook into a Littel shark 

Has anybody got any ideas I am in metro area and willing to drive north or south

The turn off is just before you get to Jurien Bay.

It's technically a no camping spot, but as long as you have a line in the water you're fishing not camping. Just don't make a mess or start a fire or anything like that.

When I was there we parked up near a gutter and got tailor and herring in the afternoon/early evening. Then later on in the night caught a couple of small sharks and some big stingrays.

I haven't tried fishing in the river, but you might be able to find some bream in there.

It's a nice spot, but might be windy there this weekend. Although it's going to be pretty windy wherever you go.

Been catching some nice tailor (40cm+) and hooked a good shark last week on a talior live bait.


 I've spent half my life fishing.. The other half I have wasted..
