A man was winched to safety after hhis boat sank off Fraser Island.

A fisherman has been plucked from the ocean by a helicopter in a daring pre-dawn rescue today off Queensland's Fraser Island.

The 60-year-old activated an emergency beacon when his boat sank about 4am and he was in the water for about an hour-and-a-half before help arrived.

He was taken to Hervey Bay Hospital suffering suspected hypothermia.
