Good Things Come To Those That Bait
Fishing on Magnetic Island - by Magnetic Adventure & Hire Magnetic Island has 23 beautiful bays, all with unique features, and 14 of them can be fished. The other nine are amazing green zone protected bays, wonderful for snorkeling.
All weather fishing, that’s the advantage of an island. There is always somewhere you can throw a line. We have sandy beach fishing, rugged mangrove swamps. Tidal Creeks holding Barra and Mudcrabs, calm harbour waters for juvenile breeding, and fringing reefs with many colourful and tasty coral species.
Species regularly caught are Flathead, Giant Trevally, Queenfish, Mangrove Jack, Fingermark, (Golden Snapper), Golden and Tealeaf Trevally, Salmon, Tarpon, Grunter, Cobia and Mackerel just to name a few.
Best baits are peeled or half peeled prawns, and squid for beach fishing. Try hole or cut pilchards over rocks and reef, whilst whole poddy mullet and strip fish flesh work well in most locations.
