Fishing Cape Cuvier in the North West of Western Australia.
Cape Cuvier is located north of the coastal town of Carnarvon in Western Australia. The scenery is magnificent and the fishing is excellent. Anglers can battle prize gamefish and reef fish from the deep water off the rocks by spinning, ballooning or bottom fishing but beware of king waves (rogue waves). Many anglers have lost their lives after being swept from the rocks in this area (more than thirty at the time of writing). Some of the many fish species encountered include Spanish Mackeral, Broad Bar Mackeral, Shark Mackeral, Barracuda, Swallow Tail Dart, Long Tom, Cobia, Sailfish, Tuna, Queenfish, Tailor, Golden Trevally, Giant Trevally, Turrum, Pink Snapper, Nor' West Snapper (Spangled Emporer), Amberjack, Groper, Tiger Sharks, Whaler Sharks, Mako Sharks... Points of interest include the 'Blowholes' at Quobba. The cliffs at the Cape have become popular and internationally famous as a venue for watching Whale Sharks feeding on massive schools of baitfish. Humpback Whales and Manta Rays are often seen in the waters around Cape Cuvier as well...

FISHING CAPE CUVIER IN THE SEVENTIES Fishing Photos  Action Photo Fighting a Tuna from the rocks at Cape Cuvier in the 1970's. I drove up to Camp Rock from Perth in my 1974 Holden HQ Kingswood sedan (202ci). My girlfriend and I were the only ones there. I got out of the car, tied a lure on and cast out. I hooked up straight away and that wonderful afternoon I caught Queenfish, Broad-Bar mackeral and Tuna spinning from the rocks using a simple chrome-sliced lure (a Halco Sparkler - in red). No hat, no shirt and sometimes no shoes. This rock rat had gone to heaven...      Bob Fisher's SportfishWorld ©
