The sands

 The preston will be soft sand with waves  and Forrest beach is a hard beach with flat water.

 If you go to Forrest beach, head right towards Bunbury and fish out in front of the big pine tree. Been some great catches from there over the years.

Sharks

Sharks are everywhere, usually in other places than those trying to catch them though.

Forrest beach produces some good gummies, bronzies and whiskeries at night plus the odd wobbigong during the day.

Its a lot easier beach to fish than Preston and you should get anything from gardies, whiting, herring, salmon trout and tailor, much the same as Preston.
