Experience Fishing in Perth

Are you new to Australia? Have you recently travelled to the country for studies or job opportunities or are you just wondering how to spend this weekend in a different way? We suggest you try out fishing in Western Australia. You may have experienced various kinds of sports, but catching a fish, though may sound easy, can turn out to be a real adventure. Fishing in Perth is one of the most popular recreational activities for its inhabitants on weekends or holidays. The reasons being the vast coastline, warm currents, numerous surrounding islands, more than a dozen fishing spots and the large variety of creatures in these waters from fishes to octopus, prawns, crabs, crayfish and many more. Thus, if you have not yet experienced fishing in Perth, you better give it a go.

Western Australia has a great range of productive fishing spots. You can try to fish from the shore or perhaps find a good fishing charter. But if you have a boat or kayak you can reach the best fishing grounds.
Fremantle is well known as a fishing spot and Blackwall Reach is considered as one of the safest fishing places. Mackerel and King George Whiting are a bit difficult to catch but they surely make delicious dishes.
On the other hand, Samson and Pink Snapper can be easily caught near the shores. Amongst the many fishing spots Perth offers, Walpole, Exmouth, Rottnest Island, Montebello Islands, Kalbarri, Green Head, Rowley Shoals, Blackwood River, Shark Bay are some of the best.
The species largely found in rivers include Bream, Flounder, Cobbler, Tailor,and Herring amongst many others. Fishing in oceans can get you good amounts of Snapper, King George Whiting, Squid, Herring. You may also catch Samson, Marlin, Bald- Chinned Groper, and Tuna. Scarborough beach is another of the favorite beaches of Perth. It is even said that Western Australian Salmon is found coming near the beaches of Scarborough in April.

Australia is warmer in the months of November to March and this makes the months the best season for fishing here. Beginners can purchase the readily available books or DVDs to have more information on fishing. To gather even more knowledge, a number of programs on fishing are running on television, one of them being 'Fishing Western Australia'.

Regarding information on license, you can get a brochure from the Western Australia Department of Fisheries and their associated website. License is not required for fishing most of the species but it depends on the quantity and species one wants to go for. The fishing limits vary for different species. For example, fishing any kind of Lobster requires a valid license or you can catch only ten Marron in a day One can apply for a license online or get it any post outlet or any of the Department of Fisheries offices. So, what are you waiting for? Check the best fishing times and then head out to any of the beaches or islands and catch yourself a nice fish or two ;-)
