Exmouth advice please

 Hey guys,

The boys and I are heading up to exmouth in a couple weeks for the second time and I was just wondering if anyone could give us some advice on where to fish etc, our first trip didnt go as well as we would've hoped aha didnt really get onto much. We might be hiring a boat, but we're mainly looking for LB advice; interested in catching queenies, GT etc on lures if at all possible (we'd probably be down for anything after last trip if im honest :') ). We're also interested in catching some mud crabs if possible.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

 

Cheers,

Marko

Learmonth

Hey Mate
Go into the Learmonth jetty and before getting to the jetty take a right along the beach, drive all the way down and you will meet the river inlet. We threw pots in there and got muddies. Good place to flick for Jacks and big sand whiting too.

Cheers

Accesses

Try the accesses down the west coast on a full tide for spanglies, single 6/0 hook, no sinker and a big slab of mullet fillet, belt it out, leave it sit and wait till something takes it.

2WD

2WD straight off the bitumen and not more than a couple of hundred yards of gravel. Then at most a hundred and fifty metre walk.

6/0 hook in a big lump of mullet fillet or occy, belt it out and let it sit, no sinker, spangos will do the rest

Gday mate There is a creek

Gday mate 

There is a creek opposite the raaf base . Not sure of the name maybe wapit creek. You can follow a track down there. Its always good to explore. Check it out on google maps. All small to medium fish on light gear. Plastics and lures always worked well, couple of jacks in there
