The ‘catch of the day’ is yours for the taking, whether it’s flathead, trevally, salmon, calamari or any of the thousand odd species on offer. Just pick up some bait from the pub or Killiecrankie Enterprises, wander over to Whitemark wharf and try your luck for some Squid or Trevally. Salmon Rocks, at the eastern end of Trousers Point beach is also a good spot for kingfish or leatherjacket off the rocks.
At the North East River on an incoming tide you’re bound to land an Australian Black Back Salmon. Many of the western beaches, such as Marshall Bay, Lillies Beach and Long Point, will also produce sizeable flathead.
For the adventurous, go on a boat ride and fish in the warm waters of the Continental Shelf with . Surf Fishing for Gummy Shark or Flathead at Camerons or Patriarchs Inlets is also a winner, especially around the full moon. Beware of sting rays.
The Lady Barron Store and Killiecrankie Enterprises in Whitemark carry a large supply of fishing tackle and bait.
