The South-East

The South East coast of Australia, which starts at Kingston to Murray Mouth, has become popular with rock and beach fishing. Mt. Gambier, is the capital of the South East where trout is abundant. A license to fish is needed, if you plan to fish in this area, but the license can be easily obtained. A fishing hotspot known as The Granites is swarmed with species like salmon, bream, ray, mullets, mulloway, whiting, flathead and sharks. A bit farther away, offshore, is Cape Jappa which is home to snapper, tuna and big trevally
when the weather condition is good.

In Rivoli Bay, Beachport is another hotspot where bream, flathead, mulloway, snapper, salmon and tommyruffs are found. The road is good and the fishing are is not that far from where you camp or park. Cape Buffon, however, is the best spot to fish.

A jetty in Robe, a pleasant town in the coast, is mostly where the anglers go. Robe is also best to go beach fishing where flathead, whiting, mulloways and salmon are in good population.

Port McDonnell is a place for the professional recreational fishermen. In good weather conditions, the sports-fishing club gets into action for the bluefin tuna.
