Cast a line in the tranquil surrounds of Phillip Island and catch your share of super fresh seafood to cook up around the campfire or throw on the family BBQ.

Fishing from jetties
Rod and line-fishing enthusiasts set up shop along the jetties at Cowes, Newhaven, Rhyll and San Remo – great places to snag flathead, snapper, whiting, salmon, shark and squid.

Out on the water
Cast your net further afield and embark upon boat fishing in Westernport Bay. For an almost guaranteed catch, join a charter fishing expeditions from San Remo and Rhyll.

Prefer to go it alone? Launch your own boat from all-tide and all-weather boat launching facilities at Cowes, Rhyll, Corinella and Newhaven, or hire a vessel from Rhyll and Cowes.

Closer to home
If you happen to return empty-handed, there's always the option of buying seafood straight off the boat at the San Remo Fisherman's Cooperative. And for an all ages fishing day out, grab the kids and make a beeline for the Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm.

You want more?
It's always important to plan ahead when out on the water. Tide times are published every week in the Phillip Island & San Remo Advertiser newspaper. For information on weather, licences, local hotspots, as well as where to find supplies, drop into local newsagents, service stations and fishing outlets.
