Fishing locations Mordialloc Creek is the channel that runs of Black Rock. Its an interesting fishing location with boat ramp access and choc full of life with moored boats throughout. The water can be quite polluted but it holds good numbers of bream and mullet. For some this area is to polluted and would prefer to walk up further to the pier which holds good numbers of squid and pinkies. It does offer nice walking trials and bird watching.

FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

bream, mullet, pinkies

BEST BAITS AND LURES

When bait fishing use sand worms, maggots, scrub/earth worms, pilchards, mussels, yabbies, & chicken. Click here to see our full guide for bait fishing for Bream. You can also flick a whole range of soft plastic and hard body lures. Some good choices include the Savage Gear Fat head cranks, zman grubs and squidy wrigglers.

ROD SETUP

We would recommend a light rod setup with a float suspending dough, bream or worms. For bream a light rod setup is best. I prefer a bream rod 1–3 or 2-4 kilo capacity, with a 2000 reel. Something sensitive to see the bites and inquiries. For carp youl need a heavier 4-6 kilo outfit with 8 pound line.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

Any time of day

FAMILY FRIENDLY

There are spots along this strip which are good to take the kids fishing for small fish, but your probably better heading to the beach and fishing of the main pier at black rock. It does offer nice walking trials and bird watching.

KNOWN HAZARDS

The water is quite polluted so think carefully before eating anything you catch and wash your hands and gear thoroughly after fishing here.
