Best Fish To Catch In May In Sydney

What fish species can i hook in May?

It's getting cooler and the type of fish on offer is changing in Sydney for the month of May. From our experience, the best fish to catch from Cronulla to Sydney in May are Blue-eye Trevalla or cod, the 3 species of Flathead which are Blue Spot Flathead, Dusky Flathead and Tiger Flathead, Flounder, Gemfish, Mako Shark and Silver Trevally.  These fish are found in different regions and depths of the ocean, bays and estuaries. For example, the Dusky and Blue Spot Flathead can be found inshore but the Tiger Flathead can be caught at depths to 400 metres. The fish we have listed will challenge your fishing skills and bring great rewards as they are all delicious to eat.


May is an excellent time for the fishing enthusiast due to the drop in weather temperatures in Sydney. As we enter winter slowly the number of vessels on the water dwindles. Naturally, this offers the dedicated fisher more chance to land the targetted fish.  Our fishing boats are the Blue Fisher and the Blue Cat. They are well equipped to catch any type and size of fish. We will supply all the bait, fishing rods, licences and anything else that will make your fishing charter a memorable day. All you have to do is bring yourself and a smile. And whatever you catch you can take home. Our captains are experienced and pay close attention to safety. Most of all we like to have a fun time.  We run morning and afternoon fishing charters 7 days a week.
