Double Island Point

Access to fish here is via four wheel drive only. Double Island Point is a great refuge for bait fish seeking shelter. It’s the only headland between Noosa River mouth and inskip point, therefore it is a great spot for fishing.

Land based fishing around the point will produce Jewfish, Tailor, Snapper, Bream and the odd Trevally, Cobia, Tuna and Mackerel can sometimes come in closer. Land based access along the rocks is fairly easy but remember to fish only in good conditions. The surf breaks also hold good numbers of tailor over winter.

Beach fishing the Seasons

During summer the beaches and headland has mostly Bream, Whiting, Tarwhine and dart. Winter is definitely the most productive time for beach fishing. Bream and Tarwhine become more abundant. Late winter sees Tailor move up the beach and into the gutters. Flathead are a consistent catch and Jewfish are more likely to be encounted.

For boaters and kayakers, there are usually always calm waters for launching on the northern side of Double Island point. Access to launch here is either via Tewantin or rainbow beach. From the Tewantin direction the sand track crosses the headland and be can tricky with a big boat.

Around the headland there is some good patchy reef that produces winter Snapper. During the Tailor run between September and October the Tailor attract larger species like Mackerel and GT. The fishing around the headland can be dynamite that these times.

Sweetlip, Snapper, Cobia, Jewfish, Mackerel and Yellowtail Kingfish have all been caught around the headland here, and further offshore anglers can wrestle with Sweetlip, Trout and Red Emperor. But be careful as the weather conditions can change pretty quickly.

Some notable offshore spots are Pinnacles, 7 Mile and further offshore to 12 mile and 20 mile.

Inskip Point

Hugely popular camping spot, Inskip Point is a popular place to soak bait along the stretch of the Great Sandy Strait inlet. The tide can run hard through here so the changing tides are best for lures. Anglers can encounter all sorts here, Bream, Flathead, Tailor and Whiting are the common catches. Focus efforts around any gutters forms on the eastern side for best results.

If the wind is up, the inside of Inskip Point is a nice relaxing place to soak some bait. Anglers can expect Flathead, Bream and Whiting here. There’s really no trick here and the best baits are prawn, squid and strip mullet or pilchards. The Tailor will also frequent the sandy point.

The best time to target Tailor around Inskip and Double Island Point is during their annual run up the coast which happens in September. Anytime between July and December they can be around.

For the boating anglers, the mouth of the Great Sand Strait fishes well a times Tuna. You’ll know they are around when you see birds in the sky working the bait fish. Tailor are also around from July to December.

Tin Can Bay Inlet

Inside the Great Sandy Strait is a fantastic place for boaters and kayakers to explore. The waters stay relatively calm and there is generally always an option. There are great Flathead, Bream and Whiting population throughout Pelican Bay, Tin Can Inlet and the joining creeks like Carlo and Snapper Creek.

Most shallow run offs, feeder creeks, channels and drop offs produce flathead on the outgoing tides. While a rising tide will see Whiting and Bream move onto the flats.

The Mangrove Jack population isn’t a big here compared to northern creeks in the Great Sand Strait. However, it is still worth exploring upstream Carlo, Snapper and Teebar Creeks in Summer. Don’t be afraid to explore upstream skinny waters during bigger tides.

Trevally are also popular throughout the Tin Can Bay Inlet. They can be found working bait schools on the flats, points and junctions of intersecting creeks. The western flats usually produce on a rising tide.
