Paradise Beach Lodge Activities:
Deep Sea Fishing:
On the day you arrive you put your boat in the estuary and this is where it remains safe and secure until the day you leave. Deep sea fishing in Pomene Bay will test any top anglers skills and there tackle. The best fishing to be had is between October and June, although no boat has come in empty handed as yet.
Species likely to be encountered are King and Queen Mackerel, Queen Fish, Wahoo, Ignobilis King Fish, Bonito, Dog Tooth Tuna, Yellow fin Tuna, Ambacor, Pick Handle and True Barracuda, with Bill Fish being landed during the summer months.
Warm water currents bring game fish right inshore and large Kingfish (Trevally), Bonito, Queen Fish and many others can be caught on fly from the beach, in the estuary and from boats drifting close inshore. There are some very shallow reefs from 44m to 6m which produces all your game species and is ideal for the fly fishing enthusiast.
