Hooking Up Anglers Since 2011.
The Sunshine Coast is a region of the Australian state of Queensland, located north of Brisbane and extending north to the Great Sandy National Park. Fishing has played an important role in the history of the Sunshine Coast, both as a source of food and as a recreational activity. The traditional owners of the Sunshine Coast region are the Kabi Kabi people, who have lived in the area for thousands of years. The Kabi Kabi people relied on fishing as a major source of food, and they fished in the rivers, estuaries, and along the coastline using nets, spears, and traps.
Many early settlers on Sunshine Coast fished for a living. There were also boat builders who sold their boats to the local fishermen. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Sunshine Coast region began to develop as a popular tourist destination, and fishing became an important activity for visitors. The region's abundant fish stocks and pristine natural beauty made it an ideal location for fishing. Maloney's Wharf was a popular area for unloading fish, mending nets and receiving cargo in the 1920s. At the time, Mullet was one of the top species caught on the Sunshine Coast. Today, fishing remains an important part of the culture and economy of the Sunshine Coast region, with many commercial fishing operations and recreational fishing opportunities available.
The Sunshine Coast is known for its diverse range of fish species that can be caught in its waters. The region's proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and other important fishing grounds has made it a popular destination for game fishing enthusiasts, with Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Mahi-mahi, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and other species often caught off the coast. Nearshore there are lots of Grouper and Snapper on bottom, including Coral Grouper, Mangrove Red Snapper and Red Emperor. On top, Narrow barred Mackerel (Spanish Mackerel) are a popular target and Giant Trevally, Golden Trevally, and Queenfish are frequently caught while jigging. Inshore fishing around Sunshine Coast will produce Barramundi, Grenter Bream, Dusky Flathead, Salmon, and Whiting. There are many other fish species that can be caught in the waters around the Sunshine Coast, making it a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts of all levels.
