Mandurah is known for the large Peel-Harvey Estuary which the city is built around. The waters around Mandurah have abundant wildlife and reasonably good fishing spots that are accessible for land based anglers. Mandurah fishing spots are diverse and range from offshore bottom bashing, beach spinning to up the Murray River cast at snags for Black Bream.
The Black Bream fishing around Mandurah canals can be fantastic. Mandurah holds the ABT black bream tournament annually. Black Bream can be targeted year round in Mandurah, however they do move through the canals and river systems depending on spawning habits and weather. During the warmer months black bream move upstream into the creeks where they can be targeted in the many snags, they also seem to be more responsive to hard body lures during this time. During winter the rains push the black bream down stream, they are best targeted in the open waters of the inlets and around the canals. However they can be targeted in the canals all year round, depending on your access to fishing spots in Mandurah.
The focal point of a lot of Mandurah Fishing spots is along the beaches, which offer anglers the chance at Herring, Tailor, Whiting, Skippy, Mulloway and Australian Salmon in Autumn. The best time to fish for Tailor is in Summer, particularly smaller chopper tailor when they turn up in numbers at the beaches. Autumn brings in the herring which will readily take a metal slug lure. Mulloway can be targeted year round, however early Summer seems to be the best time to target Mulloway from the deep channels and gutters of the beaches. Mulloway also turn up around the mouth inlets particularly at night, they can then be targeted on big soft plastics and vibes.
