Best Fishing Spots in Sydney
Our summer has not been the best so far for 2012, but one outdoor activity which is not weather dependent is fishing. A great way to while away the hours relaxing and chilling out, or spending quality time with a mate and a few cold tinny’s.
Here are our tips for the best fishing spots in and around the harbour:-
Kirribilli – Kirribilli is translated from the aboriginal words “good fishing spot” so you are off to a great start at this part of the harbour. Add to this the dramatic backdrop of the harbour bridge and the stunning Opera House which looks magical at dawn or dusk and you are in one cracking spot to fish. You can catch anything from leather jackets to sometimes even squid here. Best spot is right from Jeffery St Wharf right down by the harbour bridge pylon.
LilliPilli – Port Hacking is home to LilliPilli, a great little spot which gets crowded but delivers some great fishing. Take some live bait for best results and get down there at dawn to set up a good spot to catch bream, flathead and whiting.
Gladesville Wharf – Start heading west and you will quickly find Gladesville and Gladesville Wharf. Here is where the secretive Jewfish resides, if you have patience and want to catch one of these fish, this is a good spot to try.
Brighton Le Sands – If you want to experience fishing from the beach then head on south to Brighton-Le-Sands. Make sure you bring a rod which will get your line out past the wave breaks and you might get lucky and catch a snapper! If the fish aren’t biting you can take a swim or top up your tan!
Get out on the Water- To experience something a little different and luxurious get yourself on a yacht on the harbour. You can club together with your friends and take a fishing trip to a whole new level. Search for some great spots a little further out and experience fishing without the crowds, with a lunch which is a little more appetising than a tuna sandwich with the peace and serenity of the Sydney Harbour.
