Fishing/Fishing Charters

For the rod and line fisherman, great opportunities exist to land a decent fish from the pier where you can cast into deep water or simply drop a line over the edge. Beach and rock fishing are popular but if you are fishing off the rocks at locations like Artilliary Rocks then be aware of the tide movements and slippery rocks. Fishing licences are available from the Information Centre.

Fishing Lorne
Fishing Lorne
The Lorne Pier opposite the Grand Pacific Hotel has a large platform at the end which allows plenty of room for anglers or sightseers. The pier is the most popular recreational fishing spot in town. Views from the pier back to the town centre and along the Great Ocean Road are spectacular. Other spots worth a try are Reedy Creek and Louttit Bay.
Remember, whether you are freshwater, estuary or saltwater fishing you need a licence.

Fishing Artilliary Rocks
Fishing Artilliary Rocks
For the more serious there is ocean fishing from the rocks at Artilliary Rocks a few kms from Lorne on the Apollo Bay side. There are steps down to the rocks, but be very careful and be aware of changing tide conditions-definitely not for the inexperienced.
Remember, whether you are freshwater, estuary or saltwater fishing you need a licence.
