Good fish in the bay for kayakers. Popular areas are the Shallow inshore reefs of Redcliffe and Wellington Point as well as around the southern bay islands fishing for snapper, jew, cod,sweetlip, bream, and the occasional pelagic such as tuna, mackeral and tailor. If you head up or down the coast and try your luck with surf launches then you could be chasing the bigger pelagics on a more consistent basis as well as the above mentioned rocky reef species, add to this some kingfish and cobia that are also regularly caught within paddling distance of land and your oppportunities are endless. This is without mentioning how easy it is to quietly paddle around in the creeks dams and estuaries with the exceptional stealth factor that a kayak brings with it.
