Whether you’re after delicious dhufish, tasty tailor, or scrumptious snapper, or can’t decide between fishing off a boat, casting off the beach or simply working a reef – Two Rocks has all the right fishing spots for you!
Two Rocks is a Dhufish hotspot at the right time of year and unlike most places where you need a boat to catch any demersal fish, at Two Rocks you have the luxury of being able to reel them in from the beach!
You also have the chance to hook up big tailor (especially in the summer), Pink Snapper, Groper, Whiting, Mulloway, Samson, and Cod, and if you’re lucky you can even catch a Southern Bluefin Tuna!
There are several reefs not far off the coast and having a 4WD will give you access to some of the best secret spots around town. The beaches north of the marina are only accessible by 4WD and have plenty of gutters and small reef areas to target.
When heading out by boat, Rhone’s Reef is only 6kms south of the Marina, just past the popular surf break known as “The Spot”. If you’re not having any luck at Rhone’s, try Linda’s Reef 14kms north-northwest of the marina which is full of crayfish!
The best times to head out vary so be sure to check out ‘My Fishing Forecast’ (https://www.myfishingforecast.net/) when planning your trip. Other resources include the Department of Fisheries (http://www.fish.wa.gov.au/). For accurate coastal data, forecasts, and safety warnings, be sure to check the WA Department of Transport’s Marine site at http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/imarine/two-rocks-marina-facility.asp#
If fishing is not your thing, you can go scuba diving and explore the many shipwrecks that stretch the 45kms from Wreck Point (just south of Two Rocks) all the way to Lancelin. Many of these wreck sites are shallow enough to comfortably scuba dive; you just need a clear day with no swell to safely navigate them.
If you’d rather stay on land, simply sit back and relax at the Two Rocks Marina whilst taking in the beautiful views and fresh ocean air.
