Schulz Canal is a man-made waterway flowing into Brisbane’s Moreton Bay at Nudgee.

The canal leads upstream through Toombul and becomes Kedron Brook.

The entrance to Schulz Canal is through muddy sandflat along Nudgee Beach.

The mouth is a great spot for sand whiting, with easy access along the western shore from the Nudgee Beach road.

There are tidal creeks located immediately east and west of the mouth, helping make this a productive fishing area.

The area out the front of the canal where wave action meets the channel and flats edges is usually the best spot for whiting, but they can be caught on the flats and canal edges.

Use tiny fresh baits of worm or small pieces of frozen prawn.

Flathead can be caught reliably along the canal edges, and livebait works best.

Other local species include bream, catfish, pikey eels and stingrays. Jewfish and threadfin salmon are a chance.

There are prawns in season.

Whiting are best in summer and bream in winter.

The concrete boat ramp on the western bank has a large parking area.

The upper freshwater section of the canal around suburban Kedron has tilapia, eels and mullet.

The canal runs through Toombul shopping centre carpark, where it is slightly tidal. The canal floods the carpark during major rain events.

This free fishing and diving map is a work in progress, with more information added each week.

We have prioritised adding boat ramps, artificial reefs and wrecks, and are now moving onto rockbars, reefs and landbased spots.

Wiki Fishing Spots users can register and add information, or comment on existing information.

GPS data supplied with spot markers is generally in the WGS84 map datum.

If you add GPS data to your text, please be sure it is either in WGS84, or note what datum is used.

Any user-added map markers are checked by Admin before being approved.

No guarantee is supplied that the map data is accurate or fit for any purpose. For example, many links to shipwrecks may only be of interest to historians or divers.

How to add a marker

To add a marker, go to this website’s front page, either by clicking on the title, or using the url

Zoom into the spot or feature you want to mark, but don’t expand the map window or you’ll lose the “submit” boxes and button.

Right-click on the feature you want to mark. If the red pointer isn’t located quite right you can grab it by holding down the left mouse button and moving it.

Type your text in the boxes below the map and hit submit.

Once you have right-clicked a marker it will stay on the map, refresh the page if you want to get rid of it.

Why add markers?

It’s all about quid pro quo. You add some spots, and you’ll get some spots when you fish a new unfamiliar area.

You’ll also be part of what is going to be Australia’s greatest fishing map project.
