Port Albert, Victoria

Port Albert is a great access point for boaters, and the local jetties can be fished on the run-in tide for most species.

The upper Albert River has estuary perch.

Its mouth, called Old Port, produces occasional snapper, with flathead and whiting the usual catch.

A reliable spot for big snapper is the Snake Channel inside Snake Island, fishing at night and at dawn.

Big snapper are caught in Old Port in Nov/Dec.

On the western side of Snake Island is Singapore Deep, which drains much of the inlet.

This channel reaches 34m depth and has strong currents.

Fish the Singapore Deep on small tides for big snapper and gummy sharks.

Don’t ignore shallow areas through the inlet, as big flathead, whiting, squid and gar are common.
