Boat fishing is popular at Balgowan and produces plenty of good-size King George Whiting. Squid, large Snook and Garfish can also be caught from the boat.

The single lane boat ramp is located just west of the general store, but it doesn’t have a floating boarding pontoon and can be a little tricky around dead low tide. The ramp is protected by a small breakwater to the west, but is open to winds from the north. Some locals prefer to launch from the beach via tractor.

Best times to visit Balgowan are autumn (when the weather is calmest) and, if you have a larger trailer boat, summer for big snapper. Incessant south-easterly winds can make summer fishing a challenge, but the results are often well worth the long boat rides and choppy seas.
