Reviewer: Chris Scurfield

Quick comment: Fantastic land-based fishing in the creeks as well as from the ocean rocks. Even better fishing from a boat over the myriad inshore reefs, for all sorts of pelagic and reef species. Prone to strong winds and rough seas, the spring months generally offer the most stable conditions.
