I am very lucky to have some of the best Australian fishing right at my doorstep and as an avid fisherman living on the East Coast of Australia I know that I am incredibly lucky because I am always in easy reach of the ocean, and all of Australia is surrounded by magnificent waters filled with an abundance of fish species. Our clean coastly waters range from warm and tropical to moderate and changeable to cool and temperate, we also of course also happen to have magnificent reefs.
Tropical Australian Fishing.
Our tropical waters produce the mighty Marlin for the Game fishing enthusiasts plus the famous Barramundi for the sports fisherman in coastal inlets, plus such species as Mangrove Jacks, Trevally, Queenfish, Cod, Sharks just to name a few and the Barra, Jacks are top table fish. The tropical reefs are full of Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Nannygai, Cod, Grouper, Spangled Emperor, Red Throat Emperor etc. Don't forget about the pelagics on the reef such as Tuna, Mackerel, Wahoo, Sailfish, Marlin etc, and all are great fun to catch.
Australia's Central Coast.
The central coast of Queensland is abundant during winter months with Snapper, Mulloway, Cobia, Yellowtail Kingfish, Tuna, Pearl Perch etc. The summer months give us all the pelagics, All Marlin species, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, Sharks and Mangrove Jacks to chase both inshore and offshore. As we go south to more temperate cooler waters the fishing is just as good.
Temperate Cooler Waters.
Australian fishing is just as good in the cooler waters of southern Australia and is well known for catching Mulloway, Bluefin Tuna, Snapper, King George Whiting and Sharks just to name a few. Catching all these fish requires knowledge and know-how, some are inshore living and some are offshore, they come in all sizes and all present different challenges, I have caught them all at one time or another, and on this site I will discuss them all while giving out the tips and tricks of the trade, the techniques and the tackle used.
