Barra and Estuary Fishing Trips

Without a doubt, the most iconic estuarine angling target across North Queensland has got to be the mighty Barramundi, and seriously who hasn’t spent a considerable amount of time dreaming about tangling with ole’ bucket mouth.  The Barramundi has a legendary reputation across the north and if we can be honest, from time to time it would be fair to say they have kept us awake at night long after our head has hit the pillow. We don’t blame you for having this urge…you are human after all!  If you’re ready to make your fishing dream a reality, we can help you catch that big Barramundi that you’ve been dreaming of! Along with the great barra, we will also target other fish such as those red devils – mangrove jack, fingermark and line burning queenfish which are a massive drawcard in themselves.

As if these species of fish weren’t appealing enough, throw into the mix the locational setting in which this all takes place.  The scenic background, combined with an action packed day of fishing combine to make a great day! The Burdekin, Townsville and the mighty Hinchinbrook channel are the locations we operate from for these trips. The best thing about it is that these spots are our home, our turf and a location we have spent considerable time growing up fishing as kids. We therefore pride ourselves in knowing these systems head and shoulders above all others and will guarantee you an exceptional day of fishing, even in what would seem challenging conditions by many. We know these rivers like the back of our hands and ladies and gentlemen, this means you are going to have a cracking day on the water.

6 metre centre consoles and 5.3m barra punts are the platforms that will make your angling dreams a reality and are specially picked from the countless other vessels on the market due to the fact they are absolutely fit for purpose. They are fast, stable, spacious and are guided by some of the most experienced guides in the State.

These great vessels are trailered to our chosen destination where trips are run over consecutive days. Accommodation is taken care of on your behalf and the digs are quite salubrious if we say so ourselves!

Let us “Hook” you up!!

  • 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
