Monkey Mia

hi guys,

I am heading to Monkey Mia for a few days when heading home from coral bay in sept / oct.

what is the land based fishing like. If I wa to walk north and south of the resort would I get anything. If so what would I be targeting.

I will have a kayak but not sure I would be game enough to venture too far.

 Yeah i am told you see some big shadows under the yak!

You'll get whiting off the beach, sharks and probably rays.  Towards the point east of the ramp i have seen big mulloway caught at night.

If you have a 4wd there some ok land based spots in Francois Peron national park. But the yakking up that way looks pretty awesome. Theres plenty of youtube vids from the YFW crew.

Denham side -= squid and small snapper off the jetty or sharks, sharks, and more sharks.

 Are the sharks bad at Denham? Was thinking of taking the boat, 6.5 mtr, up there next year after getting smashed by sharks in Exmouth the past few years. If they are as bad there I wont bother.
