While the HotShot is based on Queensland’s Gold Coast, the boat and crew also travel to put our guests onto some of the best sport and game fishing that the ‘Sunshine State’ has to offer.
Likewise, we can cater to many different styles of fishing from light and ultra light (and often record) fishing, to heavy tackle fishing for giant black marlin in the north.Day tripping is the normal way we fish here with the ability for us to organise accommodation to suit everyone’s taste. Light tackle fishing for black marlin and sailfish is best December through March with the chance of also catching wahoo, mahi mahi, Spanish mackerel, and yellowfin tuna.
Blue marlin fishing is an all round possibility in this great fishery. We troll lures as well as bait and switch for these great fish, with the chance of also encountering striped and black marlin as well as short billed spearfish.
Bycatch includes mahi mahi, wahoo, and yellowfin tuna.
