Fishing around Coffin Bay

Coffin Bay is renowned for its reliability when it comes to catching quality edible fish.

However it cannot be guaranteed that all the fish you catch will be of legal size but you certainly should be happy with those legal size fish you do land such as King George whiting, garfish, salmon, salmon trout, tommies, flathead, trevally, snook, snapper, kingfish, nannygai, and more.

The following is a guide for fishing locations. Bear in mind that all fishing in any Marine Park Sanctuary Zone is prohibited and there are bag limits at all times, possession limits and no fishing periods for certain species of fish.

For those with large boats, tuna, kingfish and samson fish can be targeted during the months of January through to May, around Greenly Island, Rocky Island and the Hummocks.
