Kids Fishing on the Fraser Coast
Guided Fishing DownUnder is often asked if we can take children on fishing charters in the Hervey Bay area, and the answer is yes, of course!
We have taken many families fishing, and you don’t have to have any experience to enjoy a day on the water – we can show you all the basics you need to get started, and have you casting like a pro in no time at all!
Whilst casting lures is certainly a popular way to catch fish, we’re happy to troll or use bait to show you the range of techniques you can use to catch your own fish.
We tailor the fishing charters to suit the age and experience of the children. The Fraser Coast area has some wonderful freshwater fishing options, which are especially suitable for kids. Fishing in the calm waters of local rivers and streams is much easier for those who haven’t spent too much time on the water, and the feisty Australian Bass that predominantly inhabit the waterways provide plenty of fun for the kids and parents alike.
Kids don’t mind what they catch generally, as long as something pulls the string they’re happy – even the humble catfish is a great catch and they love hearing them grunting!
For those families who have done some fishing, but want to try something different, we’re happy to take them on the Bluewater, chasing a range of species: Longtail Tuna, Mackerel, Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, Trevally, Queenfish and Flathead to name but a few of the species most often caught when fishing Hervey Bay.
Fishing with Guided Fishing DownUnder is not just about catching fish on the day, it’s also about learning how to apply the information you learn on the day to your own fishing expertise, to help you catch fish next time you’re on the water – the kids will learn so much and have a great day out too!
We look forward to taking you and your kids fishing next time you’re visiting Hervey Bay!
