Australia's unique climate has a big impact on the best seasons to fish. The great thing about fishing in Australia is that there is never a bad time to fish! Though you are bound to catch something year-round, certain species tend to appear in abundance in different months. For example, you can find barramundi throughout the year, but their peak season is in March and April. Many areas of Australia are temperate year-round, with summer temperatures getting quite warm.
Of course, this also depends on what you're looking to catch, as it really depends on what you want to catch to determine the best time to visit. Keep in mind that the tropical areas of the north have a wet season between December and February, while September to November and March through May tend to have milder weather.

You can make sure your fishing trip is a success by integrating technology into your gear. No angler likes to plan a trip, spend hours waiting, and come home empty-handed. That's why you should consider using a fish finder on your next fishing trip. Fish finders like the Humminbird Helix 9DPI GPS, the Lowrance HDS-7, the Hook series and much more are all top-rated and can really make a huge difference on your next trip.
After spending hundreds of dollars on a great fish finder, though, the last thing you'd want is for it to fall in the water! When you buy a fish finder, it's a good idea to purchase a mount as well. That way, you can rest assured that your fish finder is secured on your boat with no risk of it falling in.
