Gleesons Landing

275km from Adelaide
Boat launching – Beach ramp

Gleesons Landing, situated about 20 kilometres south of Corny Point, is popular with weekend surf fishers, but it can be inconsistent. A four wheel drive vehicle will assist with access, but it is possible to park your car and walk in.

Big mulloway are taken occasionally from Gleesons from late October through until the end of summer, but only by those who put in the hours. Fish to 25 kilograms and better have been caught, with fresh fish fillets and squid heads the most productive baits. A rising tide that peaks just after sunset is ideal and, as with the Dusthole, it is imperative to survey the beach to find a deep gutter prior to fishing.

Nice mullet and a few salmon are caught from Easter throughout the cooler months, along with sharks and rays of various species and sizes. It is wise to cover all bases when fishing Gleesons, with a light rod for mullet, a medium outfit for salmon and a heavier stick for sharks and mulloway.
