The Fishing

What makes Northern Conquest Charters so special is that we are experienced, fisherman! Unlike some other operators in Cairns, if the fish are not biting, weʼll move the boat to a better location. We offer night fishing and day fishing so itʼs hard to say exactly what fish you will catch. Some of the fish that other customers have caught include:

  • Red emperor
  • large mouth nannygai.
  • Spangled emperor,
  • Cobia,
  • Cod,
  • Green jobfish,
  • Mangrove jack
  • Coral trout
  • Throat emperor
  • Spanish mackerel
  • Sailfish

All of these fish species have been caught here in Cairns on our very own boat! And thereʼs no need to get your hands dirty, our experienced and helpful deckhands will gut, gill and bag up your fish so your prized catch is ready for you upon return to port. This gives you more time to fish from the boat and just enjoy being out on the reef.

The location

Catching fish is just part of your Northern Conquest Charters experience. What adds to your day is the location itself.
Picture yourself on the water…..

  • Itʼs a sunny day in North Queensland, youʼre on the reef, the water is calm,
    the sun is shining, the fish are biting…
  • You have a cold beer in one hand and a fishing rod in the other.
  • You have your mates all around you, all having some friendly fishing
  • Could your fishing experience get any better? Well yes, it does!

The boat

The fishing in Cairns is always good, but fishing on our boat ‘Sir Reelʼ is the best fishing you will ever do! Sir Reel is a 58′ Conquest vessel, purpose built for fishing in total comfort and safety along with the following features:

  • State of the art fish finding and navigation equipment on board
  • Air Conditioned accommodation cabins
  • An extensive range of quality fishing equipment supplied by our good
    friends at Shimano.
  • All of our trips provide a wide variety of quality cooked meals and drinks
    (non-alcoholic) and can cater for all diets.
  • A huge rear deck for maximum fishing room, complete with a large screen
    TV, DVD and signal booster providing television reception up to 70 Nm
    (great for the sports fan)
  • Plus many more features that will make it your best fishing experience ever!

  • Can't recommend highly enough Cliff and the guys from Northern Conquest Charters, San Miguel. From organising the trip from interstate with Cliff to a skipper who worked bloody hard to put us on the fish (Stuie, you're a legend!!). Then there was Chris and Bill who kept us fed, baited and generally entertained, exceptional service and dedication. Awesome trip, a huge thanks from the Darwin mob, we'll be back!!Bert McMahon
  • Thanks Cliff/Stu/Jeremy & Cade for another great trip! We have been doing yearly charters to Northern Australia since 2009 and the 2 trips we have had with Northern Conquest (one from Townsville and one from Cairns) have been the 2 best fishing trips we have been on. Over this period we have been lucky enough to have only dealt with good charter operators. However, Norther Conquest Charters is not only the best Charter company I have dealt with, they are the best company I have dealt with from the tourism industry period. The organising of the trip couldn’t be easier. On our first trip to Townsville we were picked up from the airport, driven to a bottle shop, dropped off at a pub for lunch while the crew got the boat ready, picked up from the pub 2 hours later and then dropped off at the marina with our bags already on the boat and our drinks on ice. Getting on the boat my father said “this is too easy, the fishing can’t be any good” (he was wrong). Not only has Cliff organised our accommodation on both of our trips, we have also been transferred from the marina to our hotel with our gear and our boxes of frozen fish (saving us 2-3 taxis). Whilst on the boat, the crew work tirelessly to ensure their customers are always comfortable and happy (and well fed). Our party is split between those who like bottom bashing and those who like trolling. On both of our trips Stu has kept the bottom bashing and trolling camps happy – a task no other skipper we have fished with has accomplished. The question each year used to be which charter company to book. The question is now which Northern Conquest charter to book.Simon, Denys, Darren, Ken, Dean & Bad Jimmy
