Hervey Bay Fly and Sportfishing

Jetty Street
Urangan QL, Australia

Hervey Bay is the gateway to Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Straits Marine Park, and is situated 300km north of Brisbane. Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast boasts some of the best sportfishing and flyfishing to be had on the east coast of Queensland.

Hervey Bay Fly and Sportfishing Charters operates in this unique fishery, which is one of very few places in Australia that has an overlap of southern and northern species. Snapper, Barramundi, flathead, threadfin salmon,longtail tuna, GT’s, queenfish, juvenile black marlin, golden trevally and more can all be caught when fishing in this unique location. Fraser Island to the East protects Hervey Bay from the south easterly trade winds, this gives anglers access to sheltered fishing conditions year round.

Hervey Bay is also known as the whale watching capital of the world. The majestic Humpback whale inhabits our waters from July through to November. Dolphins, dugongs, marine turtles, shore and seabirds, the elusive Fraser Island dingo and much more wildlife can be seen whilst fishing this diverse area.

We have a wide range of charter options available and cater to all levels. Charter options include, half day or full day options, multiple day packages, group bookings and mother shipping from our luxury 50ft liveaboard vessel on request.

Andrew Chorley or " chozza " as he is known by most is a true local, born and bred on the Fraser Coast he has spent a lifetime fishing these waters. His father first introduced Andrew to fishing at around the age of 5 and he has never looked back. In his school years he spent most afternoons, weekends and school holidays fishing the local Jettys, Rock walls, lakes and beaches or hitting Hervey Bay with his Father and friends in their boat. In this time he learnt and used a huge range of techniques many which he still uses today. Growing up around the local guiding and sportfishing scene it was only a matter of time before Andrew obtained his skipper's ticket and began guiding . Sharing his passion for fishing and his home waters comes is something he enjoys and with his casual yet professional approach to guiding it has made him one of the most successful guides on the East coast of Australia.

Great day of weather and fishing.  Captain was on task all day.  We started catching fish before 9 am.  Positives - Captain never sat too long if fish were off.  We continued fishing different spots all day.  We caught fish and captain was friendly.  Negatives - just a few.  We would not take this boat if full sun day as there was no bimini top for shade and it would have been too much sun for full day without shade.  There was no need for cover on day we went as clouds were plentiful.  We felt like we travelled too far out for our liking with 1.5 hr boat trip to get to fishing and worked way back.  Would think fish were closer in but we saw whales and turtles where we fished and we did catch fish so made the ride worth it.  Would have enjoyed hot beverages in early morning—would recommend bringing coffee flask.  Plenty of good food for day was supplied.  We would go again for sure—great trip and caught a lot of fish.  Tackle was great but we would have liked fishing some with live bait.  All rods were well kept and Captain was quick to fix any bait issues and caught a lot of fish to give us to reel as well.  Very pleased, just a few improvements but we got what we paid for - a fun great day of fishing.
