Eighty Mile beach seems like a endless beach, it stretches from Cape Keraudren to the south of Broome. The caravan park is accessed via a maintained 10km unsealed dirt road, the turn off is 236km north of Port Hedland and 367km south of Broome.
Eighty mile beach is famous for its winter run of Threadfin Salmon. The way to get a prized sized salmon is to find the deeper channels along the beach at low tide, and as the tide comes in, cast out strip mullet, prawns or a mullet live bait and wait. Blue salmon and the odd Mulloway are also caught along the beaches.
The small estuaries and creeks along the beach also produce some good fishing mainly for Mangrove Jack, Bream, Flathead, Cod and the occasional barramundi. The creek to the north west is known to produce some good fishing and can be accessed by four wheel drive along the beach. Whiting are also abundant along the beaches, hermit crabs and cockle make great bait.
Small boat anglers are able to launch boats from the beach at high tide. Good reef fishing doesn’t start until about 10km+ offshore, where the water is still relatively shallow around 4-8m deep. Out here anglers can target Tuskfish, Coral Trout and Emperor. The deeper holes offshore hold Threadfin Salmon and the odd Barramundi as they weight to come inshore.
Offshore from Eighty Mile beach boaters should look for any rocks as Trevally and Queenfish will be around. Mackerel are also caught offshore and trolling near drop offs and rocks will produce results.
Shallow reef approximately 13km from 80Mile Beach Caravan Park. Sharp dropoff goes from 2m deep to 5m and holds Trevally, Queenfish and reef fish like Coral Trout and Tuskfish.
Deep hole around 20km offshore, drying height is 16m deep, unconfirmed but well worth sounding around on neap tides for Threadfin Salmon, Mulloway and Barramundi.
Approximately 22km offshore the reef fishing gets better, with water depths reaching 10-20m deep.
Accessed via four wheel drive along the beach, this small creek holds Mangrove Jack, Cod, Bream, Flathead, Threadfin Salmon (incoming tide) and the odd Barramundi. It is well worth walking the creek at low tide and casting lure in the pools of water. During an incoming tide, cast baits out and wait!
