The Western Australia holds some of the best fishing grounds in the country. Its remoteness and low population in relation to its great size mean that most of the coastline is seldom fish. The west coast most popular fish caught are: Tailor, tommy-ruff often referred to as a herring, mulloway, whiting, trevally, snapper, sweetlips, bluebone groper, and queenfish.

The long beaches of Western Australia make surf fishing available to everyone, the hot summers encourage thousands of people to the beaches at dawn and dusk when the best fish are caught. I believe that no fish is too big to be landed on rod and reel from the shore, provided you will use Alvey reel and right fishing rod. Fish

Wedge is often quiet during the cooler months but during major public holidays there are people everywhere. There are no shops, electricity or running water so you have to have your own supplies.

Trevallies are magnificent family fast streamlined fish. Trevallies are found in all Australian States. Young Skipjacks hunt in big schools close to surface, voraciously feeding on smaller fish. When hooked it puts up a fight equal to or better than most fish its size, and will take most baitfish.
