FISHING IN COFFS HARBOUR

Picture


            The City of Coffs Harbour offers just about everything the visitor could need. Accommodation ranges from caravan parks to world class motels and resorts with everything in between. The area has very active deep sea and short fishing clubs. The deep sea club  house overlooks the harbour and maintains a radio watch for anglers. Visiting anglers are welcome and the club is fully licenced.
          The boat ramp, which is on the south wall of the harbour is below the Deep Sea club house, is of four lanes and is capable of taking any size trailer. It opens into the harbour which gives all weather access to the open sea.
          Bait and fuel is available from the Mobil service station in High Street not far from the harbour.
          All tackle and bait needs are catered for at Fisherman's Heaven on the Pacific Highway, one of the largest tackle shops in Australia.
          The ocean offshore abounds in islands and bommies where just about any temperate or tropical species can turn up. But be warned, these areas have claimed a number of lives over the years so take special care and listen to the advice of locals. There is also a great interest in diving so watch for warning flags when around the islands.

Some fish are protected in Coffs Harbour as are some parts of the Solitary Islands Marine National Park. Please ensure you obtain from the Department of Fisheries or most fish supply shops  details of the Fishing zones
