Scarborough, Perth local fishing tips

Check swell with Perth Surf Cam

Herring best mornings, Mid summer to April. Whiting all year.  Mostly small close to shore. Taylor are usually fished for from sunset. Drift bottom fishing from a kayak in winter for squid.

Many deep sea fishing charter boats depart from Hillarys Harbour just 8km north of Scarborough. 25 min bicycle ride to Hillarys habour is recommended.

Warm water fish such as flying-fish have been seen late summer. They remind me of night fishing - scooping with oversized butterfly nets from an outrigger canoe outside the reef with the Chief of Aitutaki where I got an IGFA world record for a Humped Headed Maori Wrasse.

Large schools of mullet migrate close to swimmers in summer

Rod benders include harmless sand sharks and stingrays.

All mammals are protected. Common are dolphins, seals and whales in months October to December.

Above my Aitutaki game fishing boat captain Ian with snapper fish caught dawn 24 October, less than 1 kilometre from a Perth Beach boat ramp.Western Australian Salmon were running by Scarborough Beach in April. At sunset you can see Western Australian Salmon swarming near the surface off Perth Beaches. I used to catch salmon with my Dad at the North Mole, Fremantle, Western Australia. Most of his fishing was where now the Marmion Marine Conservation Park is, located 5 km north of Scarborough and Trigg Island

Trigg island
Protected inside the Marmion Conservation Marine Park which is great for snorkelling, a good way to see which inshore costal water fish are in season off Perth beaches and reefs.
Having lived on a small South Pacific Island for 10 years, non-Polynesian names escape me? Caught November 150 metres off Brighton Beach. Not sure what these fish are but they tasted great and were double header catches by the count of 3 every time.  Had to paddle my sea kayak in before it sank with the load of fish.

My Aitutaki game fishing boat. I preferred lure troll fishing from my yachts for game fishing outside the Aitutaki lagoon and GTs in the Aitutaki lagoon, especially with my regular fun fishing mate Dave Lange (IM):
