Have you dreamt of catching the great and mighty Barramundi?  Fishing in Queensland does not come any better than along the scenic coastline and estuaries of North Queensland.  Northern Conquest Charters can help make your dreams a reality and help you catch that Barra that you’ve dreamt about!  We offer Barra and Estuary fishing charter trips in some great locations including Townsville, the Burdekin and the Hinchinbrook Channel.

The Barramundi has to be the most iconic estuarine angling target across North Queensland.  Most anglers have dreamed of catching the mighty Barra!  In fact, Barramundi fishing is one of the most popular recreational sports in North Queensland.  At Northern Conquest Charters, we understand that to be a successful angler, you need a good understanding of the fish and it’s habits.   We have a wealth of knowledge about Barramundi’s and we understand it’s habits and know where to find them!  We know that Barramundi tend to patrol the edges of snag lines and tidal sheer lines where the smaller creeks join the mainstream. Of course, the time and tide will also effect their location.  At low tide, you can expect to find Barramundi in the channels of the estuary feeding on all of the baitfish and prawns which have been forced to leave the shelter of the mangroves.

There’s nothing quite like sitting back and casting a line into pristine waters teeming with wildlife, so why not make a holiday out of it?  We offer trips that run over consecutive days to give you the best opportunity to experience fishing in North Queensland. Our Barra and Estuary fishing trips will take you to either the Hinchinbrook Channels, the Burdekin or Townsville.  All of these locations offer some great scenery as well as action packed fishing.   These areas also offer some amazing wildlife which can make for some great photo opportunities and an experience you are not likely to forget.

You will have an unforgettable day if you choose Northern Conquest Charters. We have a great team onboard our boats that are dedicated to giving you the best fishing experience on the day.   The locations that we take you to are our home, and we have all spent a considerable amount of time fishing these locations.  We take great pride in knowing these systems better than all other fishing charters in the area!  Our fishing guides are friendly, experienced and patient and able to help all anglers from novice to experienced to catch a Barra!  We are proud of our fast, stable, spacious vessels which and are guided by some of the most experienced guides in the State.

  • 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
