Fishing at 14 Mile Beach Camp

Both beach fishing and boat fishing are permitted off the beach at 14 Mile with a number of different species to catch. These include the likes of flathead, whiting, bream, tailor, trevally, spangled emperor, dart and mackerel.

If you’ve got access to a tinny or a kayak then you can also head out and fish the inside of the Ningaloo Reef, however, make sure you’re aware of the marine parks to the south and further north of 14 Mile where fishing is restricted.

If you are considering fishing off the beach then I’d recommend fishing early morning or as the sun sets.

Can you launch your boat at 14 Mile?

Yes, you can launch your boat at 14 Mile, however, due to the steep incline down towards the water it can be very boggy, hence ensure you have snatch straps, etc, or someone nearby should you need towing out.

Rather than driving your car down, if your boat is light enough I’d recommend pulling it down into the water or alternatively using a trailer with a third wheel fitted.

With this type of setup, you can disconnect the trailer from the car and push it down to the water’s edge. Once launched you can then tow the trailer out using a rope from the trailer to your 4WD.

Yes, there are usually caretakers that are positioned at the entrance of the beach sites. The last time we stayed there the caretakers were very helpful and a delight to deal with. They will usually drop by when you’ve checked in. If they don’t it’s likely they’ll be busy so be sure to swing by and say hi.
