Poona has several options for fishing, however a Kayak or Boat is almost a necessity to really open up your options. Professional fishermen also work the area so the fishing can be hit or miss! There is plenty of sand bars, when the tide is less than half you need to start heading back to the boat ramp unless you want to get stuck. The water is about 200m from the ramp at dead low and the channel still have about 1-2m of water.

The main target fish around Poona is Flathead, good all year round and best in winter. Summer whiting are a staple. There’s plenty of bream, as well as little Trevally. Keen anglers can head up the creeks and cast lures for Mangrove Jack, Cod and Tarpon. Reports of Barramundi in the area are also common, however will require dedication.

For land based fishing, the best bet is a incoming tide. As the tide rises flathead, Bream and whiting start moving up on the Yabby beds to feed.

Fishing the creeks of Poona

There is Poona Creek, Black Swan Creek to the south and further north is Big Tuan creek which splits into Scrubby Creek. These creeks are best fished on an incoming tide and the start of the run out. Shallow sand bars can see boaters stuck up these small creeks if you’re not careful.

The small feeder creeks that flow back into the main creeks are always worth casting at during a run out tide for Flathead, 3” soft plastic work well. Small drains running back into Sand Strait usually hold the best flathead.

Upstream deeper bends and holes have snags that hold Bream, Cod and the odd small mangrove jack.
