The 80 km Quobba coastline, which incorporates Quobba Station, is a mecca for land-based game anglers. However, the rock-fishing can be dangerous and should not be attempted without seeking local knowledge. The attraction for land-based game anglers includes Spanish mackerel, cobia, tuna, sailfish and various sharks. The rock ledges are high, so rope gaffs are necessary in most areas. Other species caught in the area are norwest and pink snapper, bald chin groper, queenfish, tailor and trevally.

Anglers chasing game fish send out baits, usually tailor, under balloons or employ high-speed spinning or popper techniques. Several beaches along the coastline offer a less dangerous option for mulloway, tailor, trevally, snapper and squid. Bonefish are also reported in these waters.
