Yeah if you are thinking any

Yeah if you are thinking any time soon, I'd head to Kalbarri for sure.

You can get better quality fish as the average fishing punter from Kalbarri shores than Albany.

Its warmer too!

It depends on what sort of fishing you are doing,there plenty of fish being caught down here at the moment and we dont have much wind but you will get the bad with rain now and again.If you want a good varity I would come down here.

Do some research troy...

The kalbarri cliffs arnt to be messed with either mate, i would definitly go with a mate and be very careful on those cliffs, theyve taken many a fisherman's life...


Basically kalbarri is a small town located on the river mouth of the murchison river...

The coasts are lined with cliffs and rock features. Its a great place. My brother lives up there and i havnt been there in a long time, wouldnt mind going back up and having a good fish...

Do some research and yeah, find some fishing spots and make sure you'll have a ball

I would say kalbarri but saying that i wouldnt recomend the clifts for any unless they are pretty experienced with cliff fishing! Just ask tapout who is very experienced and lived there for many years fishing those spots and he did thats right DID fall off! Lucky to still be here. There are some awsome spots up there that the risk is alot better for the average fisher person with good fish to be had with feet safely on the beach or low rocks. Great for the lure fisherman chasing some good tailor and mulloway. Call into the local tackle shop and they will tell you where the fish are biting at the time and tell you whats working best as well. Hope this helps.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

Couldn't be further from the truth Kaitan. Scenery is spectacular up here. Swell has been fairly decent lately. And the wind is also starting to think about its blow so get up here sooner than later. But as Tangles said the Chinamens will start to fire soon and there are some good fish to be had up river so the possibilities are endless.

Cheers mike

Go to Kalbarri!

Wed, 2007-09-19 16:24

Chocca full of Mulloway but small so keep an eye out on the size. If you can through the smallies you will get to the biggies also Jakes Point is going off at the moment. Gnarly rides on the boogie!

My reels screaming zzzzzzz.... awwww damn it, its another boat!

All the best for the future fishing trips.
Cheers.... Jangles

HiYA,

Most likely heading Kalbarri way myself in the week commencing 21 October.  Brother may be coming over from NSW.  Just hope the wind holds off until then.

Cheers.
