Mordialloc Beach Fishing

During the summer months, Mordialloc beach gets pretty crowded. From swimmers, sunbakers to the local beach volleyball clubs. Mordialloc Beach runs adjacent (to the west) of Mordialloc Pier.

Mordialloc Beach runs adjacent (to the west) of Mordialloc Pier.

That means there’s not a lot of room for fishing there during the day.  Especially during sunny weather. 

However, in the cooler months, or on days where people are less likely to use the beach, it can be a great place to fish.


Fish Species To Target

Catches can include Australian Salmon, whiting, pinky snapper, flathead and bream.

Unless you’re going to wade out you are going to need a beach rod at least 9 to 10 feet. Use a sinker only heavy enough to get you the distance you need.

This will help you to cast a little further out from the shallows.

Baits include soft plastics, pipis, whitebait, pilchards, squid and chicken.

The main beach is located to the right of the pier.

A beach rod of around 10 foot is ideal. Fishing light though, unless you need the weight because of the wind.

There is however another beach on the other side of the Mordialloc Creek. This beach extends from the creek area to the adjoining suburb of Aspendale. 

While I have not fished it I have observed that it is often less used by swimmers at the creek end. Though less accessible.  It would certainly warrant further investigation for fishing opportunities.

Kayak Fishing Off The Beach

It’s technically possible to launch a kayak from the beach. This can be a challenge when it’s busy, or when the car-park is full.

You’ll also need to navigate some fencing, gates, etc. I’d recommend considering the Mordialloc boat ramp for launching. It’s just more accessible.

G'day!

I'm Dave, I live and fish in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
When it comes to fishing I love going out to land-based fishing spots, heading out in the tinny (aka an Aluminum Boat) and kayak fishing.

I've been fishing since I was a teen. Beginning way back in the 1970s. It was a hobby I picked up myself as my family certainly had no interest. Making me the black sheep! My favourite fish is Flathead and Snapper. Though I'm partial to Flake (Gummy Shark) and Calamari too! While I enjoy fishing for freshwater species like Redfin and Murray Cod I prefer eating saltwater species. They're just so mouth-wateringly tasty!

I love writing about some of my favourite Melbourne Fishing Spots while fishing around Victoria. As well as the tackle I use and test.
If you see me while you're out fishing say "G' day" - I'll be the one in a bush hat.

When I'm not fishing I'm working on my websites, such as Getfished, or writing computer software (my profession.)

I try to be as accurate as possible on this website. Most of the information is based on personal experience. However, if you spot an error or think there's something that I should add - no worries! Please use the Contact Form.
