Fish Profiles

Herring – Australian

Description:

A relatively small compact fish. The herring although similar in appearance as the Australian Salmon, the herring has notably larger eyes. This fish has a forked tail with a black tip at the end. The Herrings colouring fades from Olive-green to silver-white. The Australian Herring is actually a perch and is native to Australian waters.

Size:

Most commonly caught around 20cm.

Where:

Found in the waters of South Australia, along the south coast of Western Australia and into Victoria.

How:

Very good idea to use berley when fishing for Australian Herring ( bread, cereal or even crushed dog biscuits will do the trick ). Colourful/glow lures work well, or baited line of prawn or whitebait.
