Currumbin Boatshed Bait and Tackle
At the Boatshed Bait and Tackle at Currumbin on Queensland's Gold Coast, we offer customers much more than just bait and tackle!
We also sell fishing rods, fishing gear, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, surfboards and much more in our shop.
We also have kayaks, SUPs and fishing gear available for hire.
We even offer SUP lessons for people who haven't tried it before or just need a little help.
We have a huge range of tackle, but if we don't have what you are looking for, we are happy to order it in for you.
We have a new fully stocked frozen bait fridge, as well as a new fresh bait fridge, fully stocked with fresh squid, bonito fillet, whole and fillets of mullet, prawn and fillets of salted salmon (changes dependent on season).
We have fishing reels ranging from as little as $50 for a kids combo to the more expensive individual reels and rods for the diehard fisherman out there. We also sell sunglasses, hats and sunscreen for those caught short, along with fishing wear and boating and surf safety gear.
If you are just visiting the Gold Coast on holidays you may wish to hire a fishing line for a day or purchase some of our fun range of fishing gear starting at $25 (up to about $59), that is cheap enough to through away at the end of your holiday. We also stock 2 and 3 piece rods so you can fit them in your luggage when travelling. For the backpackers, we stock telescopic rods that condense into something the size of a 30cm ruler.
Boatshed Bait & Tackle also stock a huge range of kayaks. We predominantly sell the Feel free and Winner brands, but sell second hand and used kayaks. There is a great range of sea kayaks, fishing kayaks and kayaks for the weekend paddler.
We recently added a SUP wall stocking BG boards and paddles as well as Lahui kai race boards, maximum short and long boards. We also have accessories including deck grip and leg ropes.

Fishing Gear for Hire
We also hire out fishing lines for $10 a day ($20 with bait), or if you would prefer to buy something, we have fishing gear starting at $25 (up to about $59), that is cheap enough to through away at the end of your holiday or when you decide you should get more serious about fishing and want to buy real fishing gear!
