Surfers Paradise is a popular destination when it comes to fishing charters. The Pacific Ocean waters outside the Southport seaway are fantastic fishing spots for pelagic species like tuna and mackerel as well as reef fish like snapper and pearl perch. All of these are fantastic table fish. Most Surfers paradise fishing charters operate as half-day trips. On most of the Gold Coast fishing charters, and tours you will be supplied with top-quality rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Most Gold coast fishing charter operators operate from the marina at the southern end of the Southport Broadwater which is easy to get to from anywhere on the coast. If you like to go fishing and catch your own tasty dinner, then come and try a Surfers Paradise fishing charter.
The weather plays an important role in any successful fishing charter. As open sea charters need to cross the Southport seaway, heavy winds and swells can cause cancellation. During these times it is possible to take an inshore charter that fishes the shoals and sandbanks around the Southport Broadwater region. These trips can return great catches of flathead and bream which are excellent table fish. Most charter operators will offer a pickup and delivery service and bookings can be made through the tour desk at your Surfers Paradise resort.
