Bribie Island is one of three islands at the northern part of Moreton Bay, Queensland. It is 21 miles long and 8 miles wide. Cyclone Seth caused a wider passage to form at the northern tip of the island on January 2, 2022. People call this passage Morty's Passage, named after the person who was filming there at the time of the storm. The island is also known for having one side with calm water and the other side with surf waters, allowing people to enjoy the best of both worlds without traveling far.
For thousands of years, people have enjoyed fishing at this island, and it continues to be a great fishing destination. The Joondaburri trained dolphins to herd fish into nets and spears. In 1799, Captain Matthew Flinders mistakenly landed on the island thinking it was the mainland and had a conflict with one of the aboriginals. The person had attempted to take his hat off, then threw a spear at him and his crew as they were leaving the shore. Flinders shot back in retaliation and dubbed the area Point Skirmish because of the minor conflict. Today, the area where the conflict occurred is called South Point while another area of the island is Skirmish Point.
Common catches throughout the year from Bribie Island fishing include bream, cod, flathead, parrot, mulloway, juvenile snapper and Moses perch. From June to August, tailor is a frequent catch. In the winter, Bribie Island fishing often delivers sailfish, barramundi, whiting, bluefish and greater amberjack. The island is great for shore fishing and surf fishing, and it has a jetty and canals in addition to the sea waters bordering the island. The canals tend to be full of juvenile snapper, bream, trevally and mangrove jack. A wide variety of fish are available at the jetty, including juvenile snapper, bream, flathead and mulloway.
