Shark fishing up the river

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the water! Riverbank jettys like these along the Noosa River abound, and lots of fishing for river fish and sea fish happens here. But they also catch lots of sharks here too. You could fish for your supper daily here!

From the Laguna Charters Noosa website:

Noosa River Fishing

One of the most popular parts of Noosa to fish is the Noosa river. With so many nooks and crannies to explore, the options for fishing are endless. From Woods Bay, near Hastings street, to the Noosa Sound Canals, to Tewantin Marina, and all the water in between, the easily accessible parts of the Noosa River are easily fished for Bream, Whiting, Flathead, Trevally, Taylor, Estuary Cod, moses perch, and Mangrove Jack.

As well as many other species.....we even catch Cobia and Spotted Mackerel in the river at times. There is always the chance catching some of the many species Shark that inhabit the Noosa River, such as Bull Sharks.

Further up the Noosa river, toward Lake Cooroibah, there is a feel of wilderness, as traces of civilisation are replaced with trees, and National parkland. Up around this part of the Noosa river, fishing is plentiful, and it is always worth putting the crab pots out for some Mud Crabs!For those who don't mind staying up late (Or getting up really early), it is often worth getting a torch, and a net to catch prawns on the out running tides.
