Barra and Estuary Trips

Without 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. Their reputation is legendary 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! Along with the barra, we will also target those red devils – mangrove jack, fingermark and line burning queenfish which are a massive drawcard in themselves.

As if these species weren’t appealing enough, throw into the mix the locational setting in which this all takes place. 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 exceptional 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 experienced guides in the State.

These 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!!

  • Great trip out of Cairns on Sir Reel with a terrific crew. The skipper worked hard to find us fish all week and the boys were amazing around the deck making our life easy with rigs and fish. Chris was the master chef all week. Cannot rate these guys highly enough. Recommended.Dale Bainbridge
  • 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
