The Sunshine Coasts’ sub tropical climate offers every possible offshore fishing option. You can fish the sandy bottom or rocky out crops with bait for Coral Trout or Snapper, or if you’re into soft plastic or lure fishing, you can troll for Mackerel, Blue Marlin or even Yellow Fin Tuna. How about drifting some baits through deeper waters for Red Emperor and Sweet Lip.
Approximately 40 miles offshore there is a trench where blue marlin are found and reef systems that produce a wide variety of quality reef fish. The trench drops past 100 metres. Inshore you will find coffee rock grounds where reef fish hole up ready to strike unsuspecting live bait.
