Fishing the Gippsland Lakes is so much fun for everyone. Fish from your jetty at Captains Cove, sit on the banks of a river or a pier, cruise in to Duck Arm by boat & tie up at a swing mooring or throw in a line from the 90 mile beach. 

Lake & river fishing offer many species of fish including bream, mullet, luderick, trevally, mullet, tailor & flathead. Surf fishing from the 90 mile beach could see you catch salmon, gummy shark or flathead. The Summer months are fun for prawning around the Lakes. 

For bait, tackle, fishing gear & local tips visit the Paynesville Bait Shack (located next to the pub)

Fishing licences are required for anyone aged 18-70 years. Click here to purchase a Victorian Fishing licence

Captains Cove offers a fish cleaning area to get your catch ready for dinner
