Fishing the Southern Great Barrier Reef

Fishing is one of my absolute favourite things, it definitely rivals kitesurfing as my greatest passion. I'm lucky enough to live on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, a beautiful part of Australia with easy access to some excellent fishing. 

The Southern Great Barrier Reef is particularly good and it takes only a few hours in the car then a few more in the boat to access areas where you'll find species common in southern waters and more tropical climates - it's a kind of cross over zone where you end up with the best of both worlds.

On this trip I was joined by Dyllon Schulz and Beau Blake. Beau Blake has put together this clip so check it out. If you want to fish with Dyllon or me you can charter the Mitaia Rua operating out of Namotu Island, Fiji. Check it out at https://namotuislandfishing.com/
