Fishing in Australia
"Now here's a popular topic! Aussies just love their fishing"
Australia has some of the most tasty fish in the world
Open deep sea or enclosed waters - fresh water and rivers with fish in them that big, you will not believe it until you see them for yourself.
To mention every fishing spot in Australia would be almost impossible. Australia has some 36000 Kilometres of coastline and some of the best eating fish like sand flathead, whiting, and bream to mention only a few. Many are caught right of the BEACH and just about all the capital CITIES in Australia are situated right on the coast line and not far from the ocean where fishing spots are handy.
Placing the words "Fishing in Australia" into the Google search bar brings up about 156,000,000 results, so to say Australians like to go fishing is somewhat an understatement.
In the last five years a great number of websites have been placed on line dedicated to Australian Fishing.

Most people will remember, from the television commercial with a famous Australian Mr. Paul Hogan, the statement he made, "I'll just put another shrimp on the Barbie"!! Of course he was talking about the Bar-B-Que not the doll. Do you remember the giant sized Prawn or shrimp? Well you get them here in Australia.
