Anketell Point is a good area for camping close to Wickham. It is not a suitable for caravans, but makes for a good day trip. Accessed via four wheel drive via Boat Beach Road through the mining roads.
The fishing at Anketell Point is good for Bream, Tuskfish, Trevally, Queenfish, Flathead and Whiting. High tide is best time to fishing around the point, as the water moves up into the shallows. Bream and Tuskfish move into the shallows and hang around the rocky headlands. Bream also move up into the mangroves where they can be targeted on small soft plastics.
Trevally and Queenfish turn up randomly mostly on an incoming tide, they will take most lures. On the outgoind tide it is worth cast soft plastics into the feeder creeks on the eastern side for Flathead and the odd Threadfin Salmon.
Good reef fishing on the western side of Dixon Island. The reefs produce Coral Trout, Emperor, Tuskfish, Cod, Trevally, Queenfish and Mackerel.
Trolling with shallow diving hard body lures on an incoming tide is a sure way to hook mackerel. Bottom bouncing soft plastics and vibes works well for Tuskfish, Emperor and Coral Trout.
