The Fish

Spanish Mackerel

Spanish Mackerel are a regular capture when fishing all of our local waters. These are caught almost all year round in close proximity to Magnetic Island.  They put on a great fight and make exceptional eating.  The left hand picture shows a typical local waters sized 8.5 kg fish as caught within sight of the Island.  Specimens of up to 30 kg are occasionally encountered when fishing out wider with ones like this 23.5kg specimen shown below giving you a really good workout and a mountain of meal size fillets.

Budget priced day trips targeting these and other local species are available from the Island and are great fun!
