There are meter plus barramundi in every system in the far north and they can be caught through out the year with the right conditions and lure presentaion. Our guides specialise in targetting barramundi on lure all year round. Through the wet season there are runoff events upstream and during the build up the fish congregate in the Saltwater to breed. The charter locations vary from day to day, the guide will choose the ideal system to suit the tides and weather condtions. Cairns is a great place to tick off that meter plus barramundi, we can offer trips dedicated to catching that fish of a lifetime.
The topwater fishing for mangrove jack is amazing in the Cairns region. After a few quick lessons on how to skip cast weedless plastics into the mangroves there is heaps of fun to be had.
All of our charters are lure or fly fishing only and no experience is neccecery. Our guides are happy to teach anglers the fundamentals skills of lure fishing and give them skills to take home to there own water ways.
