Flying Fish Point would have to be our favourite fishing spot in Queensland.
Flying Fish Point is aptly named, we often see the flying fish, also dolphins at this peaceful Far North Queensland's rich estuary fishing location. Less inhabited and unsophisticated, this is the place for the fisherman and the writer to find a peaceful retreat away from the sophisticated resort beaches.
Flying Fish Point is located at the mouth of the Johnstone River, Innisfail. Innisfail is a great town for most essential shopping, prices are reasonable, cheap and good quality fruit and vegetables and free (aside from the cost of the bait and lost tackle), fish, help offset the cost of the caravan park rent.
Fishing off the beach is popular, Reg has caught, 23 whiting in the past 24 hours, fishing 45 minutes either side of the high tide, using shrimp bait, here of the beach at Flying Fish Point. The Flying Fish Point Caravan Park a caravan park is just meters from the beach.
