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.

  • Just back from a 10 day trip to Flinders Reef, thanks to skipper Tony and crew of Chris and Carl. You guys really looked after us even weather shitty at first and Flinders Reef didn't fire we still caught Doggies, Yellowfin, Wahoo, then all the reef fish.Paul Grebert
  • We just got off the boat after a 4 day fishing trip and all 10 of us loved it. All the staff were great and could'nt do enough to make you feel comfortable which made our trip thoughly enjoyable. Mick the chef cooked up a storm, and I think ive put on 2kgs in 4 days, hehe. Carl and Bill were sensational deckies and really new their stuff and never stoped working throughout the whole trip. We picked a bad week for the weather unfortunatly, but a big thanks goes out to the skipper (Bob) for always trying to get us on the fish when mother nature was against us. Thanks again, Chris from the Wandering Fisho's 2016.Christopher Rimmer
