Sydney's southern shore line offers many great place for all types of fishing. High cliffs dominate this shore line offering rock platforms at various heights for rock fishermen.
Maroubra Beach has a lot going for it as a beach, especially with the rock formations that are found at the ends of the beach. There is a gutter on the northern end which is about 50 metres away from the rock platform, this is commonly used by surfers to get out the past the surf. Bream, tailor, whiting and the odd Australian salmon can be caught here at the top of the tide. You can also try fishing back into this area from the rock platform on the northern end of the beach. Drummer and Luderick can also be available here during the winter months. Further down the beach there is a section where a small reef is sometimes exposed. When this happens you can fish here for bream, tailor, whiting, Australian salmon and the odd Mulloway. After there has been a southerly blow and a bit swell the southern end of the beach is worth a shot for Bream, Tailor, Whiting, Drummer and the odd Australian salmon. Maroubra beach also has a very good population of beach worms. That's if you know how to get them.
