Can you catch Black Marlin on the Gold Coast? YES!
Black, blue and striped marlin, as well as sailfish, can all be caught on the Gold Coast.
These acrobatic fish put on an intense display of jumping and tail walking during your epic battle.
Marlin & Sailfish, collectively known as Billfish (due to all having a long, hard bill protruding from their upper jaw), are the ultimate game fish. These fish are often targeted well offshore, but we are lucky enough on the Gold Coast to have regular encounters with them, even in as low as 20m of water, while targeting other species like mackerel, tuna and mahi mahi.
Tips to catch Marlin
- Look for schools of bait in mid water to the surface
- Use live baits, from mid water to the surface
- Troll skirted lures, as well as trolling dead and live baits
So, don’t delay!
