The fishing opportunities are endless, including gamefishing, reef, beach and estuary fishing. An absence of commercial fishing means the fish are plentiful.

Sheer drop-offs provide perfect conditions for trolling spanish mackerel, wahoo and dog-tooth tuna. 

Surfcasting for giant trevally, red bass and coral trout is popular. Plenty of action in seeking sailfish, blue, black and striped marlin, yellow fin tuna or in contrast to the thrill of gamefishing, the quiet rivers are home to mangrove jack, estuary cods, brassy trevally and spot tail bass.
