During summer there are some great options for inshore bluewater fishing off the coast of Cairns.
The inshore bluewater fishing off the tropical north coastline has lots to offer if the weather permits, from popping for GT's to jigging wrecks & headlands for fingermark (golden snapper). There are plenty of different target species and different fishing styles. Light tackle jigging, soft plastics, trolling and high speed spin fishing are different methods used to keep rods bent as much as possible. Tuna and other pelagics frequent the inshore islands and isolated reef and rubble marks produce a range of reef species including coral tout and nannigai. This tour is subject to weather conditions, during winter the south easterly tradewind restrict us from operating this tour option.
