Yak Fishing in Mackay

I absolutely love ‘yak fishing in Mackay, on any given day you can have an endless amount of options and different species to target regardless of weather and conditions. From the coral reefs of the Whitsundays to the freshwater streams of the upper Fitzroy River system, the local Mackay ‘yak fraternity get to target some of the worlds most legendary species. On our local bucket lists are the coral trout and tusk fish of the coral reefs to the mighty saratoga in the fresh and not to mention the Barramundi that we chase when the temperature and humidity is high.

Here is just a few of my latest captures along with a few favourites.
