Magnetic Island fishing just has to be seen to be believed. A catch is virtually guaranteed, and what a catch it can be; 22 pound Coral Trout and 44 pound Spanish Mackerel are among the trophies happy fishermen have taken home.

From the beaches, rocky points and inshore waters, you can also catch species such as bream, flathead, whiting, queen fish and trevally. Fresh bait is best, using prawns, pilchards, squid or herring.

Fishing tackle and bait can be purchased from many places on the Island, also boat with outboard motors can be hired. There are boat ramps located in Picnic, Nelly and Horseshoe bay.

Some of the best fishing spots are Middle Reef, West Point, Orchard Rocks, the wrecks; Palmosa and Argonant in Horseshoe Bay, the rocks off Bright Point, Nobby Head and the Picnic Bay Jetty.

Local Fishing trips can be booked for a few hours or more, with a professional fishing guide who knows the "right spots", so good results are assured.
