What kind of fishing?

Light tackle sportfishing is very popular for the mackerel and tuna that feed along the coast during the dry season. Residential trevally and queenfish are often found in the same areas. These speedsters can certainly pull line and really put on a show.

Barramundi and salmon can be found feeding in the low tide drains, holdinTaking care of your fish for release is important if you want it to survive - the more stress caused the more susseptable it will be to desease and being picked off by other preditors.g on snags and lurking over shallow mangrove lined flats. The harbours have good populations of both.

Bream, grunter and golden snapper can be thick on the reefy areas inside the creeks. They’re great for folks who  just want to catch fish and get a feed together.

Large jewfish reside on the wrecks and deep reefs, along with cod, bluebone, snapper and the odd coral trout.
