Fishing in Orpheus Island
Orpheus Island Fishing. The tropical waters off Orpheus Island offer prized game and reef fish species. On group trips or solo dinghy excursions via motorized dinghy (free for guests' use, as is light tackle), tasty reef fish (red emperor and coral trout, sweetlip and giant trevally) can be caught right off the island. On excursions to the outer reef, you'll get the chance to land large pelagics including black marlin, wahoo, Spanish mackerel, and dog-tooth tuna. Pre-booking fishing charters is essential and all expeditions are subject to weather and tidal conditions. Orpheus Is. Jetty, Orpheus Island, QLD, 4850. 07/4777–7377. www.orpheus.com.au.
