Dave’s Fishing Spot Tips
This pier has been seriously reduced in size due to commercial operations. It has been literally cut in half, dividing the area tug boats dock and the area where fishing is permitted.
The bad news is fishos share the pier with ferry passengers and it can get a bit crowded sometimes.
However - some good squid models are caught from the pier at times - keep an eye out for ink on the pier pathway for best spots. Off the end of the pier (to the right) you can catch pinkies, flathead and at times even a gummy shark.
The practice of throwing bait and fish cleaning scraps, by boaties at the boat ramp, into the water has led to a large resident population of stingrays.
These beautiful creatures must not be harmed (by law) but they do pose a nuisance to land-based fishing as they frequently take bait and run with your line.
