missing: australian salmon

FOR anglers in the southern half of this country, Australian salmon are a popular and easily accessible sportfish. While there are better fish on the table, these tough fighters take lures, flies and bait with gusto and rarely disappoint with aerial displays and relentless stamina. Salmon are found all along the NSW coast, down into Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. The SA and WA Aussie salmon are slightly different species and are often larger than their East Coast counterparts.

Studying how big flathead sunbake, ambush and attack their prey at high tide on sand and mud flats adds further merit to the all-encompassing moniker, “croc”. Like many anglers, I have fond memories of chasing flatties as a kid. Early on, I spent…

fastrack your local knowledge with dpi’s “go fishing” guides

IF you’ve ever visited a new fishing location, you’ll know how important access to “local knowledge” can be. More often than not, it’s the difference between catching fish or not catching fish.
