Advice on where to fish in late October

Hello to you all LB fisherman out there. Really need some advice on where would be a good place for LB fishing in late October.

I have a week holiday end of October and would like some help before booking my holiday. I'm currently working in Overseas and plan to be back in Perth for some fishing during this one week break.

I have been to Quobba / Shark Bay / Coral Bay / Albany and Esperance last year but never around October so not too sure where would be a decent place for some fishing action around this time.

Thanks in advance.

 Not sure you actually read his post or not but he did mention landbased. Although possible its not all that likely he will be tapping into demersals. Regardless no need to jump the gun and yell at him in caps about it. Geez.

... Too many fishos in Perth and most of the coastline is national parks now. *sigh*

Thanks for the comments and the reminder about the demersals ban, but chances of getting demersals from LB is pretty low even without the ban in place.

Does anyone know if Kalbarri is any good during this time? or should i go back to Esperance and try my luck.

 i went to kalbarri in october last year anapparently the week before i was up there, it was pouring with rain and extremely rough seas. the week i had up there was good. managed a few small mulloway and some whiting from the river. if your into ballooning the theres a chance of macks from the cliffs and a few tailor around chinamens. if you want you can try for some mangrove jack in the river and bream. weather was warm during the day but got very chilly at night and mornings. going again this year and cant wait.
