Boat Fishing in King George Sound

3. Pink snapper bank.  This spot is known to produce heaps of small pink snapper.  Check your size limits and have a great day when you find the best spot.

4. Coral ground that will produce Harlequin, Breaksea cod and a heap of variety. A great day's fishing for the kids.

7. A guaranteed great day for everyone. Spectacular views of the island with jettys and an abundance of wild life such as seals and birds. Check around on your sounder when you are about three quarters of the way up the island. Keep about 100mtrs off the rocks to find this great reef. Trawling this area while taking in the views is just about a guarantee of catching a good Bonito, King fish or Tuna.
