Hamelin Bay - Depth & What's biting

 Hi all

Heading down to Hamelin Bay in 4 weeks for the first time. Will be takling Kayak so heading out into the bay.

Does anyone have any idea as to the maximum depth between the shore and the 2 islands. 

Also what am I likely to catch this time of year? Had all booked for April and salmon season but well we know what happened to those well laid plans.

 Gday Iceman, if you are only in a yak then you'll be right because the weed over the ramp can be an issue this time of year.


Plenty of KGs in the sand holes VERY close to shore so don't be thinking further is better...


Worth drifting around inside the islands with a livey out under a balloon with a circle hook, good chance of a pink, YTK or a Sambo...

There is some ground in the middle of the bay, read the maps and you'll find pretty easy.


we've picked up smaller model Dhu's on jigs for a muck around on the days that aren't to fisheable out wider.


also picked Dhu up just behind Elephant Rock

 There is a channel that runs close to the inside of the island and deeper water on the south side, , good chance of big skippy, herring, pinkies and even a dhuey  if you are lucky.
