In close proximity to Rainbow Beach we have some of the finest offshore fishing grounds in the world, from Fraser Island and Double Island Point. Tony Stewart, from Baitrunner Fishing Charters says “Right now we are catching snappery squire, pearl perch, moses perch, sweetlip, maori cod and red throat emperor. At the end of May we’ll start sighting whales as well.”
“Bookings are heavy for May,” Tony continued, “so if you are planning a trip don’t muck about – book early”.

Baitrunner caters for a maximum 10 Passengers plus 2 crew. You can witness their fish tagging programme with over 10,000 fish tagged so far as they work with Sun Tag and the Fisheries Research Team to monitor growth rates and travel habits of the fish. Hopefully this will help to ensure the future of the fishing industry.
