Good water depth. A nice reef just off the far end.
Portarlington is located just on the within Corio Bay, which is a part of Port Phillip Bay and not that far from Port Phillip Heads.
It can be busy during the summer months when the tourists are in town.
But it’s quieter in the off-peak periods and quite productive.
The local beaches, adjoining the pier, including in front of the caravan park, are great flathead grounds. Especially if fished at night.
