Not sure what kind of fish are you wanting to catch but...

I was told that king george whiting is at the run at the moment in Mandurah especially at the cut. Lots of herring too.

Just over five hours drive straight through and there is no shortage of fishing options if the weather changes or you want to try something different.

Beach fishing at Wittecarra Creek, the Murchison River mouth or across the river on the reef (get the canoe guy to take you across for a couple of $$); head up the river for some estuary fishing - bream, jacks, mullas, estuary cod.  Head to the cliffs for some gnarly rock fishing or if you've got some boating experience you can hire a boat and get offshore (it's a tricky exit through the river mouth).

Walpole. Enough said. Haha. Got estuary, river, beach and rock fishing to give you lots of options with the weather. Will you have a 4wd? Heaps of places to explore down there!
