One of our favourite things about being in the boat sales business is that we get to meet keen fishermen and women from all over Australia. We sell our Vindicator Quality Aluminium Boats & Trailers right across the country and it’s great to chat with fellow fishing enthusiasts from other places. It seems we all agree on one thing: we are lucky to live in this wonderful country surrounded by beautiful beaches, wide open seas and great fishing spots. You all know we love fishing our local Fraser Coast, but we thought we’d share some of the other fishing locations around Australia –
Fishing in Far North Queensland
Far North Queensland is renowned for its good fishing and the city of Cairns is a well-known destination for those who love to throw in a line. Because of its close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, the area is home to a wide variety of fish species. If you are not a fishing boat owner, there are plenty of fishing charters that can take you to the best spots on the Reef.
Catch a Barramundi at Kakadu
Kakadu in the Northern Territory is a National Park so you will need a permit to fish here, but this area is simply stunning and offers up the best Barramundi you will find anywhere. Alternatively, there are tourism companies who have the correct permits to take you out for a day’s fishing in this natural wonderland.
Broome and 80 Mile Beach
The remote area of Broome in Western Australia is another excellent spot for fishing. The small population coupled with the out-of-the-way location mean that there are loads of fish to be caught in and around Broome. 80 Mile Beach, about 350 k’s south of Broome, is also an idyllic spot to spend some time. Take your beach rod and you will probably snag a salmon for your supper.
Wherever you are situated, Watson’s Marine can supply you with our aluminium boats and boat trailers to ensure you many happy years fishing. If you’d like to share your favourite fishing spot, we’d love to hear from you.
