Fishing fans get ready… Fraser Island’s a real catch. Sand whiting 2

Flathead

Tailor is of course the top of many anglers’ target lists on Flathead Fraser, and are most prominent on the eastern side. Whilst beach fishing is a year-round foray on Fraser Island, mark the calendar for May to October, and prepare for the annual ‘Tailor Run’… you’ll be hooked in no time! Forget camping, long days of fishing require hot showers and cold beers, and Eurong Beach Resort is the perfect place for the whole family to stay (and a beaut spot for sunrise sessions).

Whether beach worming, or bait fishing, the resort’s general store is stocked with all of your rigging needs. You’ll be equipped with the works – hook, line and sinker. When hitting the tracks always allow for high tide, be sure to breeze back before you run out of beach, so you can get back to cook up your catch!

the ultimate tips • Plan with the seasons to target your favourite fish • Time your trips with the tide and make sure you can get back safely • Don’t leave fish or open buckets on the beach as they attract dingoes • Bait-up with some beachworms – have a crack at catching these little critters yourself!
