The world is one huge book worth reading and I bet you won't put it down!

Feel alive with some first class fishing charters that regularly head way off shore through the seaway at Southport in Surfers Paradise.
It doesn't matter if it's you're first time on a line or you're an avid angler the excitement of hooking a mackerel, snapper, tuna or maybe a marlin is exhilarating. It's even better when you can keep your catch which means you can come back and brag about the one you got.
Check with a local guide or the newspaper for the local fishing report to see what's biting where, and the best bait to use. Take a half or full day trip with one of the charter guys on the Gold Coast who know the best places, secrets spots, and all the tricks and tips of the trade. An outing on the ocean will be much more memorable with someone who has experience, local know-how and a fish finder.
Having all the equipment side of things sorted means you generally only have to take one thing, a darn good fishing hat. Jump on board and breathe in that crisp, salt air and wave good bye to your darling on the dock. Or you could take him or her with you and find out why so many go mad over the zing of a reel.
It's an adventure and the best 100-odd bucks you'll spend whether you're a bloke or a beauty queen. When that sky is completely cloud-free, the ocean's calling. and the fish are ready for a feed, "you're on!" as all anglers say.
