Island Fishing with Mission Beach’s most experienced company..

Only have half a day spare?  Book an island fishing adventure to tackle some of the hardest fighting table and sport fish these pristine waters have to offer!

Skippers Alister (senior skipper)  and Gererd cut their teeth fishing around Dunk Island, the Family and Barnard Island groups, having been contracted to the Dunk and Bedarra Resorts for some 30 years, prior to Dunks closing.

These are the most beautiful island groups  on the Eastern Australian Coast,covered in lush rainforest, fringed by reefs. Even if you don’t wet a line , you will enjoy being part of this scenery for a morning.

If you only have a half day spare, this is your trip to do.

Target species vary from the Outer Reef.  Grunter, fingermark and gold spot cod are our main bottom table fish targets, queenfish, spotted and school mackerel on the surface.

If available on the day, live sardines are the bait of choice, however cut and whole baits (pilchard and squid) will work perfectly well. Lures may also be trolled or used depending on conditions on the day (lures and jigs provided).

To fish the islands properly, you really need to know your stuff – along with the areas most experienced skippers,”Spirit of Dunk’s” dynamic positioning system allows you to fish quality pressure points and smaller rocks/reefs not easily accessible  with traditional anchor systems.

You will be fishing with quality Penn tackle on all our trips.
