Getfished Melbourne Autumn Land-Based, Boat & Kayak Fishing

Pier Fishing - Go Get Getfished

Piers, I have actually fished at, here in Melbourne.

Getfished looks at each of the piers’ advantages and disadvantages.  What you can catch. What bait and tackle.  Plus the ideal conditions for that pier.

Most Melbourne piers offer safe fishing.  However, during strong weather events, all piers can become dangerous.  So keep this in mind when choosing when and where to fish.

Beach Fishing Spots

Beach fishing is often neglected which is a great shame as it’s often very productive.

Both bayside and ocean surf fishing spots.  Focussed on the places I have actually fished at.  The best features and things to avoid.

In the summer months, beach fishing can be almost impossible during the day due to swimmers.  But before dawn, you’ll nearly always find beaches without a crowd.

Boat Ramps

Boat ramps – I’ve either used or inspected in person.

With public boat ramps now free across Victoria not all ramps are created equal.  Certainly – many are not maintained equally.

These spots are based on my own experiences with them.  Whether it be from launching or a site inspection.

While nobody can guarantee we can go out and always catch a fish, the fact is some places produce better quality catches more often.

Those are the spots this website tries to focus on.

Port Phillip Bay Fishing

Port Phillip Bay fishing is often thought of as “snapper!”

Snapper is a great fighting fish and excellent table fish.  But don’t overlook the other great species available from piers, beaches, rock walls and boats.

Species to also target include flathead, calamari, whiting, Australian salmon, gummy sharks, bream being just a few.
