Augusta to Dunsborough Fishing Report

The boats fishing the 20m to 40m depths off Canal Rocks have been doing well catching a variety of reef species including dhufish, pink snapper, breaksea cod, big skippy and samson fish with spear fishing proving an effective method to target your catch for the table. The pink snapper that were being caught in good numbers along the Four Mile and Eight Mile during the past month have been harder to come by.

Tailor have mostly been turning up in better numbers at spots such as Honeycombs, Mitchells, Smiths, Bunker Bay and Elmore Road at sunset rather than early morning. Herring can be brought around any of the bays and headlands with the introduction of burley. Squid are still being caught along the seagrass meadows off Quindalup.
