Shark Bay Coral Trout

Hello All,

I have been going to Shark Bay, WA for a while now and have never managed to catch a coral trout. Could anyone please Give me info to lead me into the right direction. I dont mind either Denham side or even monkey mia. My boat is big enough to get to most locations so some details would be very appreciated:)

We've got them around Turtle Bay in the past (although I can't give you the exact location !).

Only problem with Turtle Bay these days is getting them past the sharks.............

When are you there ? We're arriving Anzac Day for 3 weeks.

Im currently up here now and have only got out fishing on 3 occasions. We go up April and july school holidays for 3 weeks. People have talked to me about Lousia bay which is a bit closer 6-10 m of water but havent got there yet.

 Its a shame, we are leaving around anzac day so good luck to you.

Fair bit of good ground

Fair bit of good ground behind that area. It’s a fair run and an absolutely horrible trip home if the wind picks up though. Choose your days carefully or have turtle bay in mind as a back up overnighter.
