Nerang River is home to a maze of canals with thousands of jetties and rock walls to throw lures at. Chasing Mangrove Jack in Summer is hugely popular throughout the Nerang River. Every year the Nerang River fishing spots produce good catches, like Bream, Flathead, Mangrove Jack, Trevally, Luderick, Whiting, Cod, Herring and further upstream Australia Bass.

Some good places to start looking for fish is around the jetties close to deeper holes, these areas have Bream and Mangrove Jack in Summer. Where canal systems drain into the main river generally hold Trevally and the odd Herring.

There are also a bunch of great land based fishing spots that produce Mangrove Jack. The best places to start targeting around the Bridges and rock walls close to deep holes. Fishing into the night on live bait is a sure way to catch a Mangrove Jack. Although lure anglers are very successful at fishing for Mangrove Jack in the Nerang River. Fishing at Dawn, Dusk and at night for best results.

Kayak fishing in the Nerang River is very popular and for good reason. A kayak has the advantage of being very quiet with a small shadow that doesn’t put fish off. You can be sure most of the fish in the River have seen a few lures in their life.
