Main Beach is a paradise if you like to go on a fishing charter. Not only will your accommodation be within walking distance of the marina precinct, but you will be able to choose between several professional charter fishing companies.
All the Gold Coast fishing charters operate half-day trips and most cross the Southport seaway onto the open ocean. here they will target reef fish by bottom fishing on local bommies and rocks or they will troll for pelagic fish like Mackeral or Tuna, with lures and jigs. Their success rate is excellent and you are almost certain to return with some tasty fish for dinner.
If the weather is windy, the Broadwater is well protected and fishing charters to these calm inshore waters can often produce a very tasty dinner. The local flathead, bream, and several other species are prolific and a lot of fun to catch, especially for the younger generation.
