Fraser Island is indeed one of the most blessed island in the world. It is endowed with natural beauty like its profuse rainforests, abundant flora and fauna, white-sand beaches, lovely lakes and creeks as well as the healthy marine life its great seas could offer.

In fact, in the part of Hervey Bay at the southern area of the Great Barrier Reef, there exist some good fishing grounds that has been famous for all those who come to Fraser island for the sole purpose of fishing. In here you can catch a wide range of tropical specie of fishes such as Estuary Cod, Mulloway, Snapper, Coral Trout, Bream, Sweetlip, Trevally and a wide range of pelagic fish such as Tuna, Mackerel, Cobia and Marlin. Aside from Hervey Bay, Great Sandy Strait is also considered as an angler's paradise. Its middle portion is packed with islands which are mostly covered by mangroves and some mud flats. However if you want to have an ultimate deep sea fishing adventure you have to stick with Hervey Bay. It is probably the most magnificent and practically untouched deep sea fishing site in Australia. In here the warm northern waters meet cold southern currents. Hence, this creates an overlap of warm and cold conditions bringing with it a doubling up of warm water and southern cooler water species. Just some of the much sort after and world renown species include Coral Trout, Red Emporer, Estuary and Maori Cod, Red Throat Emperor, Snapper, Parrot and Tusk Fish, King Snapper (Rosey Job Fish), Kingfish, Giant Trevally and many others. Certainly, deep sea fishing is a unique experience each and every fishing enthusiast must undergo. Though a little more adventurous than ordinary fishing, deed sea fishing would definitely raise up your adrenaline levels every time you will see that huge fish you are about to catch in the midst of the ocean.
