Although the bay area (Bill's bay) is a sanctioned marine park and no fishing is allowed in this area - there is still plenty of land based fishing opportunities both north and south of the bay.
If you have access to a boat then fishing from a dingy, is permitted inside the reef north of Point Maud and south of Monk's Head. For the larger boats you can venture out to the back of the reef via the north or south passage.
Although the south passage is more of a direct route out, recommendations are to use the north passage as this is a much safer option especially in rough conditions.
Spangled emperor, sweetlip, trevally and queenfish are some of the fish caught inside the reef.
However fishing outside the reef gives you access to other species such as baldchin groper, red emperor, rankin cod, coronation cod and coral trout.
A huge variety of game fish are also caught off Coral Bay including marlin, Spanish mackerel, wahoo, mahi mahi, sailfish and much more.
Situated on the North West coast, Coral Bay is located 140kms south of Exmouth and 1200km north of Perth.
Coral Bay is the southern gateway to Australia's largest fringing coral reef, the world-famous Ningaloo Reef.
Known for its clear blue skies, warm lively waters and spectacular reef structures, Coral Bay is one of WA's premier fishing and diving destinations.
