A popular holiday spot, located only 220km north of Perth. Land based Jurien Bay fishing spots are centred on chasing Whiting, Tailor, Flathead, Bream, Dart, Herring, Shark, Mulloway and even the odd Mackerel.

The land based fishing spots at Jurien Bay extend from Green Head to Cervantes. There are numerous beaches and headlands to explore for the travelling angler. Some essential lures for fishing around Jurien Bay are Metal Slices, medium to small poppers, Mulloway lures and soft plastics of all sizes for Bream to Mulloway.

This setup will cover most species in Jurien Bay such as Tailor, Herring, school Mulloway, Bream and whiting. For anglers targeting big Mulloway, an upgrade in tackle is necessary.

Hill River

The beaches north from Hill River to Jurien Bay can sometimes be plagued with weed along the beaches making it hard to fish. Black bream reside in the Hill River also, so flicking a few small soft plastics and hard body shallow minnows is definitely worth it.

Island Point

Just to the south of Jurien, Island Point is a good fishing spot, best times to fish are at dawn and dusk for Tailor and Mulloway. Whiting throughout the day, they are often in less than 1 foot of water. A burley trail can also attract Herring.

The jetty produces Snapper, Samson Fish, Mulloway and even the odd Spanish Mackerel. Tailor, Silver Trevally and Whiting also hang around the jetty at times. The occasional Mulloway turns up year round at the Jetty and is best targeted early mornings and at afternoons into the night. Squid also turn up under the lights of the jetty at night.

Jurien Harbour

The rocks walls of the marina provide a easily accessible fishing spot close to Jurien Bay. From here anglers can target Herring, Tailor, Silver Trevally, Flathead and Whiting. The odd school Mulloway also show up. Take some metal slugs for the Herring and Tailor. Silver Trevally will take mostly anything on the end of your line.

Middle Head

Roughly 2km north of Jurien Marina is Middle Head fishing spot. It fishes well for Whiting and Tailor mostly.

North Head

Four wheel drive access only, North Head is about 12km from Jurien Bay. It fishes well for small Tailor and Herring. The odd bigger Tailor can be taken, try targeting the holes in the reefs with medium sized poppers. Rumours of bigger fish hanging around this area are unconfirmed.

Sandy Point

Accessible by 2wd, Sandy Point can become quite crowded. Accesses the nearby beaches via a 4wd anglers can find isolated beaches to target Tailor, Herring and Bream. The odd mulloway is also taken from the beaches around Sandy Point.

Offshore Jurien Bay Fishing

Offshore anglers can expect some fantastic fishing for Pink Snapper, Mackerel, Dhufish, Samson Fish, Baldchin Groper and more. The marina provides a sheltered boat ramp and beach launching a boat from Jurien Bay is also possible. There are several semi sheltered locations around Boullanger, Tern Island, and Favorite Islands. Please note to the east of Boluanger Island is a Sanctuary Zone and no fishing allowed.

East of Favorite Island produces Tailor and Herring. Further offshore the fishing really comes to life.

In Summer Spanish Mackerel are found at the back of the reefs, trolling minnow lures is almost always affective to hooking them.
