Bremer Bay Fishing Spots

A relatively remote town, Bremer Bay offers some of the South West’s best fishing, from rock fishing for Snapper and Mulloway, beach fishing for salmon to estuary fishing for Black Bream. For land based anglers in Bremer Bay a 4wd is needed to access the best spots however there are still some fantastic fishing spots in Bremer Bay for the family. Australian Salmon and Herring can be caught all year around at Bremer Bay.

These is a boat ramp at Bremer River, here anglers can target Black Bream and when the bar is open the Bremer River entrance produces mulloway.

Bremer River Black Bream Fishing

Bremer River has great Black Bream fishing in the middle reaches, the bream don’t go to far upstream so focus efforts around the middle regions. Casting soft plastics into snags to slow drift down is a great way to land some bream. During the summers months bream will readily take hard bodies amongst the snags, shallow diver and deep divers all work well.

      Hey mate, it’ll be cold! There’s salmon around Bremer Bay all year round, the best spot to try is Fosters Beach, you’ll see the schools. Reef beach is also a good spot for Salmon and even the odd Mulloway. Get yourself some Halco Twisty metal slugs 30g. If you find some salmon just cast the metal slug out and retrieve, the salmon will smash it. Both beaches are to the west of Bremer. You could also try the flats on Bremer River for Bream, use shallow diving lures that suspend, like the Ecogear SX40LC. There are also bream around Pallinup River mouth and further upstream if you are keen on exploring. Good luck and I hope you get a few fish.
