Fishing Point Peron.

Gday fellow fisho's,

I'm looking forward to going fishing since I'm on me exam break and then holiday's and I was wanting to fish Point Peron for awhile. But first things first its my first trip to Point Peron and I don't know what I'm going to encounter. I don't even know what Point Peron aholds for me. Can anyone tell me how I can approach this spot and what gear is needed?

Thanks everyone.

I have been there before and we caught tailor, herring, whiting, skippy, wrasse.  Probably get mullas there aswell.

Rod wise you need a beachrod, or 6to7ft spinning rod, can get windy so you may need some decent weight to launch out a mulie...

There is also a road that goes and carparks that goes close to the end.

There sure is, most of it

Mon, 2007-09-24 16:54

There sure is, most of it around the very west of the the point, you would want to pick your day though, a slight breeze or an easterly. 

If you have google earth have a look at it.  Otherwise google satelite maps shows it in pretty good detail.

Ohh cheers

Thats awesome. I hear the Buff Bream pull almighty hard for their size, right? I haven't caught one yet but willing to try that out.

Is the fishing there dangerous such as the rock platform or is it worthwhile to take any precaution gear etc?

rod, reel, burley and bait rickets.

Med spinning reel is fine in my experience.  Though haven't caught one around the 10kg mark.

Well I guess no Bream Rod?

Mon, 2007-09-24 17:38

So what your saying is that there is no point off a Bream rod then?

I have caught them around

Mon, 2007-09-24 17:40

I have caught them around the 4kg max, and I was using 8lb braid with 10lb leader.  We just burleyed up as said before and I casted an unweighted prawn into the trail.  Hook wise I was using long shanks as they are easier to remove from a fishes mouth. 

like below in size 4

Well I might have to target them.

Mon, 2007-09-24 17:55

I do see them when I berley for Herring and Garfish when I'm fishing around Woodman's Point area. But I haven't specifically target them, well now I have too.
So I guess I should take:
-Ugly stick 6ft 6-8kg
-Penn Spinfisher
-Poppers
-Metal Slices
-Minnows?
-Softplastics
-Small hooks
-Burley
-Prawns

Yeah seems about right boys. Thankyou for sharing your tips boys, I really appreciate it.

Ok, I will take the squid jigs along with me aswell hopefully getting a couple. I wonder if I can get KG's around there since there is Squid? Might just have to try then.

Mon, 2007-09-24 18:14

lol of course I target blackies, im not saying im not going to target them, i just likes the sound of a keen buff bream fight in a fairly easy accessible spot and way... its always good to do different things and fish different places...

On the most North Western

Mon, 2007-09-24 20:23

On the most North Western point there is a brilliant ledge on the western facing edge. Its a good climb to get to it up and down cliffs. Get there real early because it a very popular spot.
Dont leave anything in your car you dont want to lose. Can be bad there but on a weekend day should be alright.

Herring is the stable fare from those parts. The reef on the northen edge of the ledge I'm talking about is deeply undercut and when I was a kid diving there it held heaps of buff bream and western rockblackfish. A good burley trail drifting under it may bring out the bad boys to play.

point peron

Tue, 2007-09-25 15:50

dude dont get to excited about point peron. sure it has its decent days but there very far between and a decent day is usually only herring maybe a tailor or 2. Salmon have moved on so no point targetting them and the buffies are extremely fussy ive only ever caught one and i used to fish there quiet often and i caught it on a piece of green weed was about 4 kg
and there is one spot there that at the right time of year there is small queen snapper around but theyn are quite small most of them not sized. your best bet is to just pick one spot and burley the hell out of it and anything around will come to you.

Work is just for people who havn't discovered fishing
