Great Australian Bight Fishing Spots

 The Great Australian Bight area offers some good fishing before the large cliff start heading towards South Australia. Access to most fishing spots at the Great Australian Bight are generally only accessible via 4wd or long walks down sand dunes or rocky cliff faces.

Point Culver Fishing

Access to Point Culver is either via the beach from Israelite Bay which follows the Telegragh Track or alternative access to Point Culver is via tracks off the Eyre Highway. It should be noted you must be self sufficient and a experience 4wd driver, track conditions vary and your car will get scratched! Always check the tide charts, only travel with conditions permit and be aware that there is a lot of seaweed build up on the beach that causes many 4wd vehicles to become bogged.

Fishing Point Culver

Point Culver offers some of the best beach fishing in the South West and is renowned amongst Esperance anglers. Along the beach to Point Culver and at the point anglers will encounter Big Salmon and Mulloway in the surf. Large great white sharks also patrol the beaches so a solid surf rod and reel is necessary.

The salmon schools can easily be spotted in the clear waters of Bilbunya beach and can be targeted on minnow lures, metal slugs and even poppers.

Mulloway fishing is best at dawn, dusk and during the night when large mulloway move close into the deep channels, they will readily take vibes and soft plastics.

Toolina Cove

After Point Culver the 4wd track returns to the Telegraph Track the next spot Toolina Cove is located about 70km east. Toolina Cove is accessed via a 100m descent to the beach, where anglers can target Salmon, Skippy and sharks. Some of Australia’s best Abalone is found at Toolina Cove however boat access is very hard.

Share this with your mates. We hope you start catching a few fish at Great Australian Bight!
