Here is our collection of videos about catching all types of whiting.

They are a simple fish to catch but if you’re tired of bait fishing, why not try them on lures and really challenge yourself.

We are still building this section but we’ll regularly be adding videos about King George, Yellowfin and School whiting from both the shore and boats.

More Whiting Facts:

Whiting are one of the 2 most commonly kept fish species by WA anglers.

Research shows whiting sizes are larger over the warmer months, although KG whiting seem bigger in the colder months.

In WA, ten whiting species are known to exist:

  • King George whiting
  • Southern school whiting
  • Western school whiting
  • Yellowfin whiting
  • Western trumpeter whiting
  • Stout whiting
  • Goldenline whiting
  • Northern whiting
  • Bay whiting
  • Mud whiting

In southern WA, around 75% of whiting caught are southern school whiting, even though most people call them sand whiting.

Even school whiting can live for over 10 years and anglers seem to release about 20% of the whiting they catch, a fairly high figure compared to other bread and butter species.
