Hervey Bay has some of the best fishing in Australia, largely as a result of its geographical location, providing a home for both cool and warm water species. It’s close proximity to Fraser Island is another definite plus, as well as it’s crystal bays and calm waters. I could write a short novel on the fabulous beaches, lakes and fishing spots in Hervey Bay and surrounding islands, but I’ll just stick to a short (hopefully intriguing) blog instead.
Hervey Bay offers a variety of fishing experiences from fly fishing to fishing off the pier and fishing charters to name a few. The Hervey Bay waters create the perfect breeding ground for a number of species. You can find longtail tuna, Spanish mackerel, coral trout, estuary cod, threadfin salmon and much more, anytime you make a drop over one of the region’s bountiful bommies.
So where are the best spots to fish?
