Formerly Mike's Fishing and Tackle

Mike's Fishing and Tackle

Before Bait Master Fishing and Tackle opened in Bli Bli in 2021, it was formerly known as Mike's Fishing and Tackle. Mike's was originally established in 2012 and was located in Biggera Waters on the Gold Coast. In 2017, Mike's was sold and relocated to Aerodrome Road in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. We purchased the business in 2021 and moved it a few kilometres up the road to Bli Bli on the Maroochy River.

We acknowledge and appreciate our long history on both the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, and love hearing from customers who shopped at the original Mike's Fishing and Tackle on the Gold Coast!
