Esperance fishing charters and the fishing spots off the Western Australia's Southern Coast present a range of challenges for the keen angler. Here, where pristine white beaches meet brilliant blue seas, you can cast a line while sitting back and enjoying the view. You’ll often find you're the only soul on the beach – the ideal setting when waiting for a bite, watching the sunset and perhaps enjoying a beer. You have the option of freshwater fishing in the calmer, more protected waters of Bandy Creek, Lake Windabout or even out at Stokes Inlet National Park.

Munglinup Beach near Hopetoun, is also an excellent place for salmon, herring, whiting and flathead as well as mulloway. Alternatively, leave the beach behind and try hooking deep-sea species on a hire or charter boat with Black Jack Charters or Esperance Diving and Fishing.

Boat ramps are located at Bandy Creek Boat Harbour, and adjacent the Esplanade Foreshore.

The coastline around Esperance and the Southern Coast offers breathtaking scenery, and dotted with massive granite boulders and reefs, making rockfishing a popular activity. Visit the Recfishwest website for rockfishing safety tips.
