Fishing is one of the most popular pastimes in the world. Be it for sport or leisure. We have all heard or told stories about the ones that got away, and the tales of it was this big (stretch your arms out as far as they go, and you'll know what I mean) . We have compiled a guide to the types of fish you are likely to catch whilst in Queensland and particularly the far north. For some mysterious reason, whenever I go fishing the fish seem to like every one else's hooks except mine.  I am sure you will have better luck than I do as is evidence by the many anglers that have recorded record catches for the various fish species listed here...

You will find all the latest information on recreational fishing rules and regulations laid down by the QLD fisheries department change from time to time and it is in your best interest to find out the latest rules with regards to bag limits and closed seasons.  So play it safe and keep within the limits.
