Shark bay

Looking at going up next month as only have 6 days off work. Not sure where to fish. Looking at chasing reef fish and hope to get macks and tuna. Prob stay in Denham and launch from there. How far for good grounds and where can i find GPS marks.

Hope you get some good weather next month Bouttime usually windy this time of year but you might get lucky. The wife and I went down to Denham October last year, it blew every day could only fish the beachs for whiting. Here are some spots to try off Denham if you get the boat in the water; 25 53 364sth 113 14 947east ; 25 53 578sth 113 18 509east.These marks are between 10-15nm off Denham boat ramp Westerly direction.The area has a lot of shallow coral,best to anchor and burley. I never got the chance to fish the area but was told it was worth trying for Trout, Blue Bone, Snapper. Good luck.

from memory theres a reef about 6 mile out if you travel on 300 degree line from boat ramp.heaps of small snapper around there for light tackle fishin.also big lagoon on a high tide for whiting when the wind is up you just drive up there
