Looking for ideas - LB fishing, North

Hey guys, venturing north in a month or so and just looking for some ideas on which general area to hit up. Will be LB, have 4x4, prefer beaches - chasing tailor, mulloway, sharks and the little fellas on the flicky.

Normally drive up Leeman way, but wanting a sea change. Any ideas on somewhere nice and quiet? If it's within 5-6 hours of Perth, I'm happy.

Have you checked out S-bend?

Pretty much ticks all your boxes and the caravan park is good. It’s not too far out of Geraldton if you need supplies, you could spend half a day exploring if you wanted to. Some cracking mulloway and good amounts of tailor come out of the beach up that way.

 Some great 4X4 along the beaches, heaps of both beach and low rock platforms and the real possibility of a dhuie from the shore......gets my vote

I did Flat Rocks once, about 10 minutes drive from caravan park and cleaned up with good size tailor. Love that patch

 Dongara start at caravan park head south along the beach until you get to a river mouth well river sand ocean it rarely breaks anyway directly infrount of the river mouth is a huge gutter with reef either side of it at first light this can be a very productive spot for big tailor on surface lures.

Appreciate the responses. S Bend & Dongara area are both on the radar. I probably wont make a call until later in the month when I know what the conditions will be like.

What are the beaches like to drive on around S Bend? Pretty soft?

Just watch out for drifts of sand covered sea weed, can be an absolute trap
