There are a huge number of places to dangle a line along with many varied types of fish to
catch .So far the types of fish I have taken here are Bream ,Trevally ,Pinkies , Yellow Eye Mullet and there are reports of Snapper up to 5 kilo's and Mulloway of an evening .Large amounts of undersized fish are often caught here and when you consider that a Bream of 27 cms is about 8 years old it's well worth throwing some of the smaller ones back to catch another day .
The erea between wharfs 4/5/6 are now closed off to the public due to the construction zones for housing
Nth Wharf .
You can access here by going down Piggot St and turning RIGHT at
the custom gates .Most of the Sth side of the wharf is fenced off but if you drive all the way down the end of Nth Wharf Rd you can park the car and walk onto the wharf , it is not fenced off to pedestrians only cars .There is so much erea to fish along here so it's best just to go with what feels right ,by that I mean look at the suroundings and try to imagine where the fish will be hiding within the structure of the pier .There is so much timber with all the pylons , everywhere is a potential fish holding site .
On the opposite side of the wharf there are qiute a few boats moored up along here and it's pretty much the same as what i described above .The beauty of this part of the wharf is that you can drive right up to the edge and set up and fish ,easy . You can drive all the way around to berth No 8 and fish around the boats .There are times when you may be asked to move on but only when there is a function on one of the boats moored there.
This one is in the middle of the Docklands precinct and is most likely one of the most productive places here .
You can drive out onto the pier past 9/10/11 berths but there are businesses along here so it may pay to ask them if you can go up there first ,this is accessed from berth 8 .The next access road is in between berth 9 and 14 , this is most likey the best place in the whole of the Docklands to fish . From the edge of the access rd all the way around to berth 16 there are some very good sized Bream along with some excellent Pinkie Snapper .Also around at no16 there have been Mulloway taken at dusk .
VICTORIA DOCK ( now closed to public )
Unfortunately the erea ranging from Docks 17 & 18 all the way to the end of Victoria Dock is now almost totally closed to the public , the bits that are not are pretty much all taken up by constuction equipment in the Wharf 21 - 22 erea ,they are rebuilding the docks .
In summary this is a wonderfully enjoyable place to fish ,there are a large variety of fish to catch and at times they almost jump on the hook .There are some places that you must be carefull of as they have collapsed ,most have been fenced off but people still insist in ignoring the danger signs and fences ,and if they keep doing this perhaps we will be stopped from fishing there because after all it's not public land .
Have fun , keep safe and by all means respect the wishes of the maintenance division that looks after the erea and the tennants who work here .
