Bermagui - New South Wales

Bermagui was one of the favourite haunts of well known author/angler Zane Grey, who was the first many years ago, to publicise the incredible fishing in this area.

Today, this magical fishing resort, located as Zane Grey might have put it, in the “deep south” of New South Wales, is where keen anglers journey regularly to challenge the ocean giants like Tuna, Marlin and Sharks.

Bermagui is more than just great fishing though, it has miles of beautiful beaches, scenic drives and an abundance of art and craft shops that make it a popular and inexpensive holiday resort for the whole family.

There are no international-standard hotels or airport facilities, but the available accommodation is comfortable and the pubs are friendly. Bermagui is a fisherman's town, with rustic wharves where its fleet of commercial trawlers and long-liners share harbour space with an ever-increasing number of small pleasure craft.

The big word in Bermagui is Marlin as well as Yellow fin Tuna and large consignments find their way from here to “Sashimi” gourmets in Japan.

Montague Island, about 15 nautical miles north of Bermagui, produces some spectacular catches of Yellowtail Kingfish on jigs, or live bait, and now and again some lucky angler captures a Marlin. In the main, our packages are geared around Marlin, from November through June.

During the summer months from December and through to April, vast schools of small bait-sized tuna are available. These fish are bridle-rigged and trolled live, and have produced some outstanding Marlin and Yellow Fin Tuna captures.
