Fishing locations Tenby Point is a fishing hotspot for Gummy Sharks along Western Port. Particularly with a great gutter system in the sand that encourages Gummys to come through at night for a feed. This is often a location which you will see keen anglers fishing throughout the night trying to land a big gummy.

FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

Gummy Sharks, Elephant Fish, Trevally, Whiting, Baracouta, Flathead, Salmon, Sting Ray, Mullety, Leather jacket

BEST BAITS AND LURES

Squid, Trevally, Salmon, Pilchard, Blue Bait, Silver Whiting,

ROD SETUP

This very much depends on what species of fish your targeting. If your chasing the larger species such as Gummy sharks or Sting Rays then your going to need a nice heavy outfit. My preference for this is a 8-12 kilo rod and a 4000-6000 reel spooled with 20 pound line. A single large hook or double snelled hook to present a full squid or pilchard. Sometimes I will also chase these species my with Snapper rods which are a 5-8 kilo rod with 12 pound line. This is a fun way of targeting these fish that might get busted off occasionally.  If your chasing lighter fish that don’t require gear as heavy such as elephant fish, flathead, trevally or whiting then a nice light general purport 2-4 or 3-5 kilo with a 2500-3000 reel spooled with 6 pound line will work well.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

If your chasing Gummies then a run-out tide during night is probably the ideal conditions to fish in. This is a great winter location for elephant fish and salmon, but it fishes well for most parts of the year. If your keen to land a gummy shark then fishing throughout the night will be the best bet as thats when predatory fish are most active. Always keep an eye on tide tide early morning high tide is always great along piers and jettys.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

It is along the beach but the prime fishing spots are either the rocky ares or along the pier. Piers and Jettys can be a great place to take the family fishing.

KNOWN HAZARDS

The muddy conditions cane make walking very difficult in that immediate area. Also the rocks can become slippery and shark so watch your steps.
