BK'S GOLD COAST OCEAN-REEF AND GAME FISH, FISHING TECHNIQUES AND WEATHER GUIDE.
We do fish all year round, (averaging around 300 trips per year since 1987) mainly over rocky reefs from the seaway/the entrance to the ocean to 11 kilometers from shore in depths from 10 to 48 meters for Mackerel, Cobia, Tuna, Snapper, Wahoo, MahiMahi, Sailfish, Marlin and many other rocky reef fish. As a general rule we fish where we had the best fishing the trip before. Our fishing techniques include simultaneous, multi level whole pilchard setting, live baiting/any fish caught that is of legal size, strip baiting/fillets of freshly caught legal fish, lure spinning/retrieving and lure trolling - whatever is working the best on the day. If unfamiliar, with those terms, don't let that "fish speak" worry you, we gladly assist/coach as required. Autumn, winter and spring has comfortable mild weather, approximately 20 degrees centigrade, day temperature. Summer has typical tropical weather, often with cooling afternoon sea breezes giving approximately 30 degrees centigrade day temp. In summer and autumn we encounter more Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, MahiMahi, Spanish, School and Spotted Mackerel. Winter and Spring are our best times for Snapper, Tuna, monster Cobia/our largest @ 51 kgs and Shark. Many species of sharks, particularly Whaler Sharks up to 3 meters in length are encountered but not targeted/fished for on BKs Gold Coast Fishing Charters, so as not to contribute to their rapidly dwindling and in some cases endangered numbers.

Bob, Thanks for a most enjoyable day. I'll be back again. I had always said that the Yellowtail Kingfish was, pound for pound, the best fighting fish in the sea. That was until I hooked a cobia. Those buggers don't give up until you sink the gaff in. I have attached a couple of photos. Thanks again. Ron Grapulin.

We will be sure to join you again next time we're up in the Gold Coast!
P.S It was the best tasting fish we have ever had!! Cheers, Ally.
MY BIGGEST FISH EVER and a big thankyou, Maryanne, Bec and Bob, I usually just dream of fish like the one I landed after a 30 minute battle on your Gold Coast Fishing Charter. Could you please post it on your website so that I may gloat to my mates at home some more.

The great Ocean Sunfish is closely related to Toadfishes, swims slowly with it's mouth permanently open to feed on jellyfish and plankton. It can grow to 3.35 metres/11feet estimated at around 2 tonnes, it is the most prolific egg bearing fish of all producing up to 300,000,000 eggs.
Spotted Wobbegong Sharks are released on BK's - better to dive with than to eat but will bite if provoked.
Port Jackson Sharks on BK's are released, who would want to kill a living fossil, it and it's cousin the Crested Port Jackson Shark have not changed in 2.2 million years.
Golden Toadfish, powerful hook shearing parrot beak-like mouth, some of it's flesh is poisonous to eat, we don't take the risk as some overseas cultures do, we therefore release then to play their part in the food chain.

Trigger Fish are often confused with Leather Jackets. A tell tale is that they have skin on the dorsel spine and scales. They have a powerful parrot beak-like mouth that bites at and through shiny fishing line. Better displayed in an aquarium rather than on the dinner plate. About 6 different species have been caught by BK's Fishing Gold Coast Fishing Charters on the Gold Coast.
Shovelnose Ray or Shovelnose Shark, prized flake to eat, harmless to touch. Being small this one was released. They can grow to 2.7 meters, 9 feet.
Scorpion Cod, like the name implies, handle with extreme care, a paralysing venom can stop humans respiration, not to mention the burning crushing pain. Known also as Red Ned, Prickly Heat, Red Rock Cod and ("Poor Mans Lobster" if steamed then cooled to eat as a sandwich filling) but the skinned fillets are fantastic/better cooked coated in olive oil spray, pan fried and eaten hot as we do for our guests on the boat when requested.
To conserve energy, the Slender Suckerfish (or Remora) has adapted their dorsal fin into a sucking disk to allow it to hitch a free ride on anything of larger size from turtles to whales. Sharks are often the host, providing the 2nd advantage of a free feed of scraps from the messy, mauling, head shake eating style of sharks. Aboriginals utilise the strong sucking power to fish for turtles by tying a line to the tail to then haul them in when sucked on to the turtle.

There is around 17 different species of whaler shark in Australian waters, many of them on the Gold Coast growing to a maximum of 5.7m, at over 2.5m they are considered to be potential man killers. Difficult to identify even by professional ichthyologists. BK's Gold Coast Fishing Charters guests have captured 6 discernable types, all of our whaler sharks over 1.3m have been released.
Half shark and half sting ray but without the stinging barb.

The Grey Nurse Shark has a worse reputation than it deserves because of it's fierce looking teeth but it has only one reliable report of an unprovoked attack against man to it's credit. They are protected due to dwindling numbers, this one was released in great condition from BK's Gold Coast Fishing Charters on the 4th of July 2006.
These squid hold onto our baits but rarely get hooked up which allows them to let go of the bait as they are pulled out of the water to escape. To catch them we slowly place a net under before they let go and wallah! - fresh calamari.
Porcupine fish are also known as burrfish - South Pacific Islander warriors have used the dried skin as a war helmets. Modern day beachcombers as light shades. BKs Gold Coast Fishing Charters.
