Best fishing times:
Firstly, Dusk and Dawn are especially scenic times. These same times also offer an increase chance of action!
The first hour of tidal movement, from high to low and also from low to high are also good times to be soaking a bait!
Finally, look at your tide guide if you happen to find the tide patterns just mentioned coincide with dusk or dawn. Get in, get on!

Fish ID:
We recommended using the QLD fishing app App Store QLD Fishing 2.0 app or, Google Play QLD Fishing 2.0 app as your ultimate Fish Guide reference.


General Safety Tips

As a visitor to Tropical North Queensland, for your ultimate safety we simply and strongly advise you fish from a jetty or wharf, where you can fish day or night with confidence knowing you are up high and safe from the water’s edge.

Catch fish or not, we hope that a Pedro’s pack can provide an experience of the pastime that is fishing. A chance to get back to nature, relax and enjoy some quality time with family and friends!

Likely Catch

Jetty/wharf fishing presents a range of fish to be caught. From young reef species to pelagic fish, small reef shark/ray. Structure draws fish life!
