Located 150km north of Carnarvon is Quobba station. Quobba to Gnaraloo Station is regarded as having some of the best beach and rocking fishing in Australia. The fishing spots from the rocks can be dangerous, large waves have taken many lives along this coast line over the years. Please take caution and only fish from the rocks when conditions are favourable.

The coastline is made up of steep cliffs making access to some fishing spots difficult. From the beaches of Quobba, Cape Cuvier, Red Bluff and Gnaraloo anglers can expect Spangled Emperor, Trevally, Tailor, Whiting and Cod. Ballooning from the steep cliffs anglers have caught Tuna, Mackerel, Snapper, Baldchin Groper and Cobia.

Beach Fishing Quobba to Gnaraloo

Its not all huge cliffs and massive waves, the beach fishing from Quobba to Gnaraloo is also great. Along the beaches anglers can target Mulloway, Tailor, Dart, Trevally, Pink Snapper and the odd Bonefish. Good beaches to fish are Point Quobba, Cape Cuvier and Red Bluff.

Offshore Quobba

Offshore fishing spots Quobba, Red Bluff and Gnaraloo produce some fantastic fishing. However the coast line is mostly exposed to large swells. Anglers can expect much the same as well as Red Emperor. The points provide shelter from larger southerly swells, Point Quobba offers the best protection with an outer reef. Inside point Quobba anglers can target Pink Snapper, Emperor, Tailor, Tuna, Mackerel and Cobia.

Point Quobba

Great beach fishing for Spangled Emperor, Tailor, Whiting and Cod. To the south fish the close inshore reefs with soft plastics and poppers to entice Tailor and Emperor. A small boat gives anglers wider options to fish inside the bay for Tuna, Mackerel and Cobia. Trolling these waters if effective. Jigging soft plastics in deeper waters generally produces Spangled Emperor and the odd Pink Snapper.

High Rock

About 1 mile south of the homestead, 30ft above the water lies High Rock. Ballooning, Spinning and Bottom bouncing are your options from this spot. A cliff gaff or 24ft pole gaff is needed. There is a stainless steel safety wire along the top edge of the cliff.

Approximately 1.5km south of Quobba Station, high rock is 8-10m above sea level. A long gaff is required to land any fishing, spinning metal slugs, bottom bouncing and ballooning are effective. Safety anchor points are provided.

2 Mile

A great spot for lure fishing, however seek local advice before fishing this spot as the tide and swell must be right.

The Boundary

Five meters above sea level the rocky platform gives access to deeper waters where anglers balloon for Tuna, Mackerel and more.

Cape Cuvier

Closer to the water than most rocky platforms, Cape Cuvier is a good place to cast metal slugs, soft plastics and poppers for Mackerel and Tuna.

The Ledge

Just north of Cape Cuvier the ledge is one of the better spots for spinning lures. A long gaff and a steep climb down a cliff is required to access this prime fishing spot near Quobba.

Camp Rock

A great spot for spinning and bottom bouncing, camp rock produces Emperor, Snapper, Tuna and Mackerel. Accessed via a steep four wheel drive track.

Red Bluff

Red Bluff is famous for fantastic surfing and it also has great fishing. The bluff is slightly more protected from southerly swells and the rock platforms are much closer to the water. Along the bluff anglers can work soft plastics between reefy structure for Emperor, Cod, Coral Trout, Pink Snapper and Baldchin Groper. To the north are some good platforms that give way to deeper waters.

The Caves

A beautiful fishing spot however difficult to access, requires four wheel drive. Fantastic lure fishing and bottom bouncing. Anglers must be fit to even attempt the climb down to the Caves fishing spot.

Gnaraloo Station

Gnaraloo Station is a Sanctuary area so fishing is off the cards. However there is some fantastic snorkelling. The waters to the north are well worth exploring.

Offshore Fishing Quobba to Gnaraloo

The best option for small boats is inside the reefs of Point Quobba. Where anglers can troll for Mackerel and Tuna. Bottom jigging and soft plastics cast around likely reefs for Emperor, Snapper, Cod and Coral Trout. The waters north exposed to very large swells most of the year. However there is some fantastic fishing to be had.
