Mandurah to Rockingham Fishing Report March 14, 2017


Beaches north of Mandurah continue to fish well for tailor late afternoons and an occasional mulloway after dark. There are reports of plenty of squid over the weed beds between Silver Sands and San Remo. People fishing in The Cut report that the jetty in front of the Jolly Frog is still producing some good crabs but you have to work for them.

Others fishing in The Cut report good tailor, particularly on a rising tide, skippy and herring. Tim’s Thicket and Preston are still the pick of the beaches with good tailor after dark. The bridges are also producing good fish with herring, tailor and bream being caught in numbers. Large numbers of slimy mackeral have been present, particularly schooling up around the Mandurah artificial reef.


There are still good catches of herring, tailor being taken from the beaches near the grain silos right through to Long Point. Tailor seem to have thinned out somewhat along this stretch, but there are still enough being caught to keep fishers interested. Divers are reporting crabs around.
