Mandurah Fishing L/B.

Hi guys,

Over this long weekend myself and a couple of mates are planning to fish the Jolly Frog Jetty in Mandurah. But I'm hearing it being hit all the time and now just asking myself is it still worth a crack or is there any other substitutes out there? Really keen to land a fish down at Mandurah as I've never landed one down there myself. I'm not very familiar with Mandurah and spots around there, so if anyone out there who has the experience of fishing Mandurah can you please help this young cobber out?

Thanks guys.

Elora.

Elora - Mandurah LB Fishing

Thu, 2008-05-29 09:45

Hi Elora. Gee; you have tons of options at Mandurah - Beach, estuarty, river fishing. Depends what gear you intend to use and what you want to target.

For beach fishing, you could try the beaches north of Mandurah - Madora, San Remo etc - early in the morning fishing the gutters for tailor and (if you are really lucky) even a mullaway. Or during the day for whiting. Further south, across the old traffic bridge, you have the older part of Mandurah - halls head. A drive round there will find you in alternating territory from sandy beaches with gutters and some rocky areas as well.

For estuary, yes, the Jolly frog comes up quiet a bit. So you may want to travel over the dawsville cutt, take the first right (west) where the new development is going in and work your way to the southern rock wall - always caught a good feed of herring there - great fun on light gear. Then, of course, there's the ocean facing groin extensions either side of the cut, worth a flick off those too!

As to river fishing, you have both the Murray and Sepentine rivers - there's been plenty of reports of folks pulling out some decent bream - have a look around.

So plenty of options!

Local knowledge is a GOOD thing, so you might want to give Ash or Paul a call at Mandurah Tackle Mart - both top blokes and should be able to help you out with spot guides, what's been happening now, conditions and the right equiptment - especially HBs and softies for brim etc.

Good luck! Hope this helps!

I'm going to Mandurah in 2.5 weeks time and I'm staying in a house on the doorstep of one of the canals. Can you help me out because I've never been fishing in Mandurah before.Smile

I really appreciate the time and effort you put into giving me some options. Well I'm going to be armed with a 2-4kg Tica graphite rod, 5-8kg G Loomis Spin matched with a Daiwa Certate (use for bottom fish and beach fishing). Just planning to catch Tailor, Mulloway if lucky, Salmon if lucky, Herring basically anything worth a trip down there.  

Thanks.

Yes, do so Elora :)

Take some pics, try different spots and give Ash or Paul a call - worth a spend on the telephone call IMO. Those guys live and breath Mandurah!

Will look forward to your report - good luck!

Go to the North end wall at the cut, watch out there swell can rip you in. drive past the jolly frog and go to the Northern end. when you find it there are two rock walls.
