Fishing in Whitsunday

Writing about fishing Whitsundays is an arduous task. Why? Indigo waters, scores of fish, pristine beaches, Black Marlin, Great Barrier Reef—it seems like one could go on for days and essays. But, that’s exactly why. There’s so much you can fish for, or generally enjoy there, that it makes it really hard to pick one thing to start with. Luckily, this collection of 74 little islands boasts a variety of goods. World records rise and fall on a daily basis, and the books just keep adding names of anglers landing ‘granders’. The question is—are you fit to land the next one?

Rules & Regulations

It’s really important to pay attention to the zones where fishing is prohibited.  Otherwise, you risk being fined, but even worse, you risk damaging the natural habitat of lush marine life. If you’re a recreational angler, you don’t need a fishing license. Still, be nice and follow the local guidelines. It’s best to check them out before the trip to stay up to date. There are some fish that have been reported to cause tropical fish poisoning. You want to stay away from Chinaman fish, Paddle tail, Red bream, Barracouta, and Moray eel.

Whitsunday Fishing Seasons

January

What a better way to kickstart another angling year than by claim a big game prize. Black Marlin are ripe for fishing. You can also get other Billfish, and the Tuna offer might surprise you. Find a charter to help you get to the hall of fame.

February

Fine game fishing. If you’re here to set a record, you still have solid chances. Black Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin and Dogtooth Tuna are swimming around. Sharpen your gear, and go get them.

March

Big game fishing is on, and you can land Marlin, Sailfish, or Tuna. If this is not enough, you can head out to the reefs and taste your luck there. You might get Coral Trout, Red Emperor, or Nannygai.

April

Fishing can get a bit slow in April, but you might get some Trevally. Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin can also be caught, but not in large numbers we all are looking for.

May

You can get yourself some Coral Trout, Tuskfish and Sweetlip. Do expect Mackerel to rise in numbers. Some anglers manage to get fingermark or Jewfish. Further out, you can get Red Emperor and Nannygai.

June

Mackerel are biting, and the bottom around reefs rewards with Sweetlip, and Coral Trout. Further out, you can get Red Emperor and Nannygai. There are sightings of Tuna.

July

Spanish Mackerel, Red Emperor and Jewfish are on the chew. Sweetlip fishing can be really productive, so head out to the reefs. Mackerel can be a bit timid.

August

Reef fish are out there, and you can find schools of Red Throat Emperor, Sweetlip, and Tuskfish. Find fringing reefs and their drop-offs. you can also get Queenfish, Trevally, and Mackerel, Coral Trout, and Black Jew.

September

Around the reefs, go for Sweetlip, Giant Trevally, Red Emperor, Coral Trout, or head further out to get a Black Marlin, Yellowfin or Dogtooth Tuna.

October

Tuna time! Go trolling for Yellowfin. They can be found around the islands. Some anglers recommend spinning. You can also catch Spanish Mackerel, as well as Black Marlin.

November

Prepare your gear for big game. Sailfish, Swordfish, Black Marlin are big and hungry. Go trolling for them. Or go around the reefs, and you may catch Coral Trout, Red Emperor, or Giant Trevally.

December

The to-do lists are wrapping up before the year ends, but not game fishing. It’s hot and everywhere. Find a charter to take you and yours for an early Christmas gift.
