Moreton bay fishing offers great fishing for boaters, kayakers and even some great land based fishing spots. The bay is fairly shallow, with most waters only 1-8m deep apart from the shipping channel. The main species to target are Bream, Flathead, Snapper, Sweetlip, Tailor and Whiting. However other species like Cobia, Mackerel, Tuna, Jewfish, Cod, Trevally and Mangrove jack are caught in the bay.

All year ‘round anglers can target Snapper, Bream, Flathead, Whiting and cod. The best months for Moreton Bay Snapper and Winter to Spring, when larger and more fish hand around structure of the bay. Winter is also a good time for Trevally, Bream and Diver Whiting. Summer time sees better pelagic fishing for Mackerel and Tuna in the bay.

Cobia also come into Moreton Bay, the best time to find them is from September to January. Target deeper structure in the northern bay, look for ledges, coffee rock, rubble and even channel markers.

Many anglers are hardcore lure fanatics and will fish for all species in Moreton Bay with lures only. This is definitely a viable option and will land fish, provided you fish at the right time.

Moreton bay doesn’t have much bottom structure. Boaters and kayakers will mostly find sandy bottom and weed beds. There are some rubble / pebble bottom sections that hold fish. There are also a number of artificial reefs that attract fish. But don’t be put off by the shallow water, some of the best fishing is done in only 2-4m of water, low light times are best.
