Billfish enthusiasts have been encountering big numbers of sailfish in the upper areas of the gulf as well as off the west coast. Black marlin are being found in excess of 100m of water while bigger blue marlin are in 500m and beyond. Yellowfin tuna and wahoo are being located in a range of depths and areas and there are plenty of dolphin fish also about. Spanish mackerel are being caught in better numbers south of Tantabiddi and near the Muiron Islands.
The access points along the west coast are worth a visit late afternoon and evening for spangled emperor, which are ordinarily close to shore in numbers during this time of the year. Queenfish and trevally are also about the west coast as well as the gulf beaches. Yellowfin whiting are in excellent numbers south of the marina. Learmonth Jetty has squid, trevally and garfish.
