The Entrance and adjoining coastline boasts a fisherman’s bounty of bays, lakes, rock platforms and beaches.
The Entrance Channel is a hotspot for mixed bags of fish and is always popular at dawn and dusk. The channel is open to the sea and is occasionally dredged to keep it open.
North Entrance beach is a good spot for jewfish, tailor, salmon, bream, flathead and whiting. Tailor and tuna also thrive below Norah Head lighthouse. Further north, Budgewoi Lake is known for its bream.
Out in the deep blue ocean, snapper, morwong, kingfish, trevally, flathead and even marlin further out have been bagged. You can book a charter from ‘Central Coast Reef and Game Charter’ or ‘Big Fish’ to test your skill. Fishing bait, tackle, boats and advice are available from The Boathouse, located under The Entrance Bridge.
