to the "salmon holes" and fish. You go down a real steep set of stairs which end right on the beach. In front of you you will see a large dome shaped rock on the beach where the water meets the sand. I stand on that rock and cast straight out towards the gap in the reef in front of you, you cant miss it its right in front of you about 40-50m out from memory. Its perfectly safe on that rock or standing on the beach next to it just dont go out onto the rock faces that meet the ocean swells there several people have been killed there over the years. I usually catch salmon admittedly ive only fished it at easter times when salmon are schooling. I also catch tailor and bream in there also skippy, some big bull herring and whiting. use whole mulies for salmon, tailor sundown seemed best time for me also good luck

 Sand patch is a great spot, big gutters, reef sand etc. its gonna stretch your lungs though with 300 odd steps to the beach.

i would recommend staying off the rocks at Salmon holes

 In summer we went to the Middleton beach big4 and the jetty next to the historical path and the little kiosk and restaurant there was producing heaps in summer, so winter should be on fire! Go at night so the light draws em in and u should get heaps!


Fishing the swan for bream, it's just an obsession
