What rods will I need?
For flats and inshore fishing an 8/9wt rod and reel will be ideal. For tuna, offshore and larger pelagic fish a 10-12wt set up will be best. Reels with large arbours can retrieve line faster and reduces line memory. Reels should be loaded with a minimum of 200m of backing.

What’s the best time of year to come?
Fishing is generally always good in Exmouth. During the summer months the daytime temperatures are very warm and the area experiences cyclones during the months from late November to late March. During this time accommodation is readily available throughout the area. Fishing is generally less pressured and water is warmer during this time.
April through to October is generally the busiest time of year in Exmouth. Whale Shark Season starts at the beginning of April and the towns population virtually triples for 6 months. During this time the daytime temps are lovely and moderate and there’s no cyclones.
