4wd spot north of Perth for a fish!

It's been far too long since I've had a fish and we just got a new Pajero that I wanna test out so that means only 1 thing.... time to get out there!!!

I haven't ventured north of perth that much, only once to lancelin a few years back, so I'm after any suggestions of somewhere to take the missus and little one for an overnight camp (maybe sleep in the car) where I can have a fish and actually have to use the 4wd! I have a bit of experience 4wding but wouldn't say I'm an expert, would like to do a little beach driving if the beaches aren't too soft and washed out from the winter storms. Would like to have a little flick for anything resembling a fish during the arvo/morning and maybe a bit of a night fish for a shark or mulloway.

Now all I have to do is wait for some decant weekend weather................ oh and need to find somewhere to go :) So any suggestions?

Guilderton to Seabird

You can drive all the way up to Seabird from Guilderton. A lot of clubs do it. It's a good safe way to test the rig.

Good fishing north of Guilderton also and, from memory, some places to set up camp. My recommendation this time of year and given recent conditions is that, unless you are prepared and experienced with the vehicle and the locations, don't go on the beach. No need really as tracks take you very close to where you would cast a line. The winter tides make things extremely unpredicatable (just ask me LOL).

Closer to home there is my second home and that involves hitting the coastal tracks at Two-Rocks and making your way north. Plenty of interesting spots there but look out for quadders and bikers (not to mention plenty of 4x4's). Again, refrain from going on the beaches unless you have backup and experience up that way.

Two Rocks area where you can get off the beaten track and get a few decent fish.

Not too far to travel and it's not a bad fishing spot. There is a 4X4 track to the beach from there.

be carefull in winter on the beaches
generally the storms tend to make beach driving harder work as the sand is fluffed up and softer.
carry enough gear to help yourself out and stay above high tide line
if it looks dodgy , don't do it, walk any dodgy looking parts first to gauge firmness
i carry an air jack and snatchy
even better if you have a winch , just bury your spare wheel as a sand anchor
i like heading up to lano.
good tailor/mulloway spots and help if needed as there's normally a few there

Thanks for the suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions and advice fellas! Yeh I thought the beach could be a little adventurous, prefer not to lose the car to the ocean on it's first trip. Can you make it from two rocks all the way up to guilderton along tracks (obviously only to the south side of the mouth)? I'm cyber 4wding on google earth and the coast looks like theres tracks along there but as I've learnt before, you can never tell if theres fences or gates blocking the way...

The coast just north of two rocks does seem to have a bit more feature than the coast from guilderton up and it's closer (living SOR it will take me an hour and a half to get there) so may go for an explore along there.

yeah mate be extra careful in winter on the beaches

Mon, 2009-08-24 00:05

especially around lancelin, they have big wash outs on the beaches and once you get to a point theres no turning back...i usually save my 4x4 fun on the beaches for the summer and spend winter up in the muddy tracks through mundaring etc.. give the powerlines track a go if your game... :)
