McLoughlins Beach is a popular destination for Melbourne fishos as it has a long jetty that produces most species, with estuary and offshore grounds for boaters, and surf fishing on the nearby Ninety Mile Beach.
Snapper are caught by boat in the deeper inlet entrance.
Big flathead are on the local flats and channel edges in summer.
Expect strong currents in the channels, especially at the entrance.
Reeves Beach is the southernmost section of Ninety Mile Beach accessible by road, via Reeves Beach Road. There is a camping area behind the beach.
A 4WD track runs at the back of the dunes, joining the foot track from McLoughlins Beach.
McLoughlins Beach itself has a picnic shelter, playground and toilets.
The area that makes it great is vast Corner Inlet north of Wilsons Promontory, which extends east to McLoughlins Beach.
McLoughlins is reached from Yarram on the South Gippsland Highway.
The jetty near the McLoughlins boat ramp is a great spot for those without a boat, and those who make the 3km walk to the sea entrance will find superb surf fishing, with the
chance of snapper or large salmon.
Yabbies can be pumped on the flats and beach worms can be caught in the surf.
Fishing is best in summer, with mainly trevally, salmon and tailor in winter.
