Bendalong - Sth Coast


Recommended Posts

I'm off on a trip down the south coast in November to Bendalong.

I have done heaps of fishing at the usual haunts on the south coast, like JB, Batemans bay, Narooma & Bermagui, but never fished out of Bendalong.

Has anyone fished here before? Any hotspots to try? Bait grounds?

I've heard the boat ramp is also little average at low tide?

Any feed back from fellow raiders would be appriecated.

Hi Nathan,

I haven't fished offshore from Bendalong but I am very familiar with the place having done many surf trips to the area.

The boatramp is pretty good and well protected from the sea being tucked in a little cove with direct sea access. Only during big NE swells is it off limits.

The locals launch some pretty big boats from it, I have seen 25 berties going in the only drawback is a reef just off the ramp say 50 metres out which you have to watch at low tide. It is well marked though.

This is where they pick up yakkas etc.

Have seen the guy's come back with trophy reds and kings so the area is pretty rich.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Rod.

My 2 Cents are -

We dropped the old boys 6m cruisecraft in the ok but at low tide a 4WD is definately required, also if you are using a car watch the surge if there is any swell running.

I mainly spearfished the area between Bendalong and sussex and picked up a lot of Bream Drummer Blackfish Big b@stard Trumpeter etc. We did see some fishos come in early with a Good catch of snapper between 2-4kg (about 5 fish, mind this was in May)

We did see a few reddies in the water up to say 10m in close so it maye be wirth berlying up for them if you sound them but i think most of the fish are caught in deeper water.
