Fishing in Hervey Bay
If fishing is your passion then come fishing in Hervey Bay. Whether you like to fish off the beach, off the pier or off a charter vessel you’ll find what you’re looking for right here in Hervey Bay.
Whether you like to go out into deep water or stick a little closer to shore you’ll find a charter boat that can take you where you want to go. Most charter boats operate out of the Boat Harbour at Urangan at the southern end of Hervey Bay.
The beach at Hervey Bay stretches for many kilometres and, if beach fishing is your thing, you can fish anywhere along the full length of the beach.
If you want to get a bit further out into the bay without getting your feet wet, and without the cost of a fishing charter, you will find that fishing off the piers is definitely for you.
There are piers at Scarness, Torquay and Urangan and, while the first two can only be fished if the tide is right, you can fish from the Urangan pier at any time of the day or night and the end of the Urangan Pier will let you drop a line into some very deep water.
