Fishing Spots in Foul Bay
In addition to Swincers Rock, Gleesons Landing and Burners Beach, Foul Bay is a great fishing destination worth considering. Located 268 km from Adelaide, this is a productive batch of coastline to fish when the tide is high. If you are mullet fisher, the region is a delight in late March and all through winter. Try to get to the beach early on as the tide is rising. This is when the mullet are extremely hungry and attracting them with a great supply of berley is easy. The best bait to bring along to catch some mullet is the local seaweed worms.
You will also be able to find some giant King George Whiting in the deeper waters of this region. The reef regions off Point Yorke close to Foul Bay are known to offer great schools of whiting and medium snapper, often in the beginning of summer.
Make sure you bring all your fishing and camping equipment and plan your trip well in advance to have a whole trip in Foul Bay.
