Fishing rods

Is there anywhere on Hamilton Island where I can hire fishing rods? Can you fish off the beach?

You can rent rods and stock up on bait and tackle at the dinghy hire. Big tides probably shouldn't cast a line in at Catseye as you may snag a swimmer. Plenty of people fish off a little beach in between marina leads and airport jetty. the rocks near catseye might be worthwhile or grab a dinghy for a half day.

Go for a srtoll to Coral bay or Escape Beach for a private fish.

Here is the info on the activity guide:

DINGHY HIRE: Create your own adventure and hire

a 4.5m motorised dingy. No experience needed. Fun for

all. Bookings essential at the Tour Desk.

Half day: 8.30am-12pm and 1pm-4.30pm $139.

Full day: 8.30am-4.30pm $229

My husband took up fishing rods last time and actually never used them at all. If you are after just a casual fish, bring a handline with you otherwise as mentioned above you can hire the rods from these guys. Just give the island a call and talk to the Dinghy Hire shop and they will be able to answer any other questions for you.
