View Full Version : whitsunday advice needed.

23-10-2003, 12:21 PM
I need some help with fihsing locations in the whitsundays. I'll be heading up there for a week in late november with the woman. She thinks its a romantic trip away, but has kindly agreed to let me take some fishing rods.

We will be staying at long island. Are there any good spots within walking distance or a short boat (hire tinny) ride away?

We will be doing a day trip to whitehaven and maybe a fishing charterboat.

Ideally, I want to swing the fly rod and throw lures at GT's and macks.

Any advice appreciated...

Take a squid jig with ya. #At night there are heaps at the end of the Jetty. #Nothin' like easy bait. #Unfortunately when I was there I didn't plan on fishing (wife, kid, romantic weekend only). #The guys at club croc reckon you can get some decent fish off there too but my bet would be to get on to a boat -money well spent. #The guides know where the fish are and it will save you a lot of time in trial and error.
