Fishing

The bays and oceans of Victoria provide many opportunities for recreational fishing. Cast a line from a jetty, try exhilarating surf beach fishing, or head off-shore in a boat.

A special place to fish is at Port Albert. It is one of Victoria's few remaining operational coastal fishing villages and it's no wonder that it is so popular with anglers. A variety of fish can be caught, including large snapper and whiting. Fish from the wharf or for those that want to get right out onto the water, there is a concrete boat launching ramp.

For those who prefer to join an organised fishing expedition with other keen fishermen, there are fishing charters which operate in both bay and ocean areas.
