Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Sydney

The Marlin fishing Sydney offers is exemplary. You can target Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin all within a short distance from shore. The best time to come fishing for Marlin is from November to May, in the warmer months in New South Wales. Striped Marlin arrive first, then Black Marlin, and lastly, Blue Marlin. All three species make this area their prime feeding grounds until June.

What to Expect 

Sydney Harbour offers anglers the rare opportunity to target Marlin just minutes after leaving the dock. This is great for anglers who aren’t a fan of travelling hours offshore. Just 22 km from the harbour is the continental shelf, which drops from 140 meters to 3,000 meters. This is the perfect habitat for huge predatory fish! It’s even possible to catch Marlin around Sydney just 16 km from shore!

The quantity and variety of Marlin found in Sydney give the Marlin Mecca further north a run for its money. However, the size of the Marlin you’ll be reeling in are smaller than their northern relatives. Local Black Marlin are usually around 200 kilograms, compared to the 400 kg specimens you can target in Queensland. Blue Marlin around Sydney will usually weigh around 150 kilos, with anything pulled out over 200 kilos is seen as a huge catch. There have been bigger Blues caught, but these are rare.

How to Prepare

Anglers mainly target Marlin by trolling with heavy tackle. This opens up big game fishing to fairly new anglers. You’ll need strength to reel them in, so make sure your charter boat has a fighting chair to help you. Marlin will hit your lures fast – you’ll know you’ve hooked one when your line screams!
