King George Whiting start their lives around sea grass, usually closer to the shore. Since undersize specimens are not for fishing, you generally want to head further out.

Mature fish move offshore and you will sometimes find them in the depths of up to 100 meters. So, you’d be hiring a charter to take you to Rottnest Island, as well as Garden Island. As Whiting like to stay close to the protected waters, you’ll be fishing around coral formations and the edges of the reef structures. Sea grass holds numerous specimens, and the deeper you fish, the larger King George Whiting get. Also, check out North and South Mole when fishing closer to the shore.
