Shore anglers are well catered for along the metro coast, with a number of rockwalls offering great fishing platforms for fishers of all ages. All of them will produce bread and butter species such as herring, tailor, garfish and skippy at times. After, or even during, rough weather they will also turn up bigger species such as pink snapper and mulloway.
Squid are often caught from these as rockwalls as well. Some of the more popular locations include the North and South moles, and Hillarys Marina. A range of species is also caught inside Hillarys at times. There is some good beach and reef fishing in the metro area for a similar range of species, with tailor a favourite species of many surf anglers. Popular spots include Brighton Beach, Swanbourne, Trigg and Point Peron.
