TAILOR

MADE for ISHING Three blokes named John walked into Eurong’s beach bar. No, it’s not the start of a bawdy joke, but rather the end of a fabulous day’s tailor fishing on Fraser Island for the fellas. World-class all-season angling sees fisher folk – like the Johns – flock to Fraser to test their rigs and rods when the tailor run. Many addicts prefer to beach camp on 75-Mile Beach, whilst a great majority prefer the creature comforts and welcoming atmosphere of Eurong Beach Resort. It’s an added bonus that there’s great fishing within a coo-ee of your hotel room. EVERYBODY’S DOING IT Former Australian batsman, Matty Hayden, grew up fishing in and around Fraser Island with his brother. As he said to the folks at theartofmoney.com.au in a recent article about his favourite fishing spots: “It was all bloody good. The estuary fishing, picking up trevally, mackerel and spangled emperors off Moon Point and mangrove jack in the creeks.”

The Fraser Coast is a top spot where anglers can readily catch Bream, Bass and Barra. 28

For world class fishing, you can’t beat Fraser Island.
