The west side north of Norman bay is all ok for fishing, some of the islands are parks I think but unless you have a boat that won’t be relevant
2015/16 Species comp total: 289cm
Brown Trout: 37cm
Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm

Big fish went 67cm and 3.6kg and inhaled a nomad Madscad in pilchard pattern. The other on one of the float baits.

I'm happy to discuss any aspect of the tactics other than the exact location.

I believe you can fish in Marine parks but not on Marine sanctuaries.
