Boat launching – Dual lane, all tide
Price is a small settlement with substantial mangrove forests and two creek systems - Shag Creek and Wills Creek - both of which are very important fish nursery areas.
The Price creek system yields big mullet, crabs, garfish, salmon trout and the occasional flathead and is the ideal sheltered location for small boat fishing. Those with larger boats often venture outside on to the gulf to catch King George whiting, snapper and plenty of blue crabs in season. Price is a crabber’s delight, and if you are there at the right time (November through until May), pulling a boat limit isn’t difficult.
Boat launching can be tricky again at low tide, but a little thoughtful planning can overcome any associated problems. There is also a strong tidal run in the creek, so take care during periods of peak water movement.
