Fishing

Did you say fishing!? Well ask the dedicated and they say ‘no, the fishing’s no bloody good anymore’ but that is like the endless stories of ‘the one that got away’ – no one wants to share the good fishing spots with anyone else. It is great to see the excited faces of kids when they catch a whiting or bream off the beach, and the not so young kids when they arrive back with flathead, finger mark, grunter or the occasional barra (in season). Then on top of all this, you can get enough prawns and crab for a meal – and why take any more.

There are plenty of fishing spots around Cape Hillsborough, Andrews Point, Casuarina Beach and Sandy Bay, or alternatively, there is beach access for launching small boats.

The fishing at Cape Hillsborough remains unaffected by the new ‘green zones’ of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. However,┬áthere are some limits on the size of fish that can be legally taken for many species. There are minimum size limits and also some maximum size limits.
