Fishing Poona & Great Sandy Strait

Poona is the ideal location for boating access to the inside of Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait. With yabbie banks, sea grass beds, sharp drop offs, expansive mangrove lined creeks feeding into the Strait it provides excellent fishing and crabbing.

There are many places where fish can be caught. You can expect to catch in the open waters of the Strait - winter and summer whiting, flathead, bream and sand crabs. A variety of reef fish can also be caught and in season, trevally, mackerel and tailor. Much of the Great Sandy Strait is mangrove lined with many creeks and waterways holding quality fish. In those mangrove areas you can expect - mud crabs, whiting, flathead, bream, cod, grunter, salmon, mangrove jack and for the lucky ones or those that work a bit harder, a nice barra.

Poona and Great Sandy Strait are ideal for the fisherman with the tinnie or equally suited to those that prefer a kayak working the shallows or the mangrove lined channels.

For those favouring deep sea fishing it is a short run to the Wide Bay bar and out to the many and very productive reefs off Fraser's eastern side. Equally, the land based fisherman at Poona has many spots to choose from including the sandbanks, channels, rocky foreshores and access to a number of creeks.

Many a fisherman can relate to some of their best experiences with a line in the Strait.

Poona has always been there but not as many as you would think have really experienced its fishing potential. Come and holiday in our beautiful part of the world - Poona will make you most welcome.
