Fishing

Just an  hour in any direction of Cairns and you would have covered many types and styles of fishing such as lake, estuary, river, beach, reef, game and sport fishing.

Lake Fishing - Lake Tinaroo is one of the most popular lakes where most of the world record Barramundi is caught. Situated on the Atherton Tablelands, Lake Tinaroo has become become a renowned recreational hotspot, for watersports, fishing, birdwatching, camping, and sailing. Tinaroo Barra are an amazing fish, they can grow to an enormous size in the lake because they have no natural predators (except for the occasional speedboat). Each year, the lake is stocked with fresh baby "Barra". Also on the menu at Lake Tinaroo are eel-tailed catfish, sooty grunter, sleepy cod, mouth almighty, archer fish, spangled perch, long tom and many species of crayfish, including the red-claw and yabby.

Estuary Fishing - Cairns Trinity Inlet is located in Cairns City and features over 90 kilometres of winding Cairns waterways to explore. This extensive mangrove lined estuary is home to a great diversity of species including the famous Barramundi, Mangrove jack and Trevally, Salmon, Grunter, Flathead, Fingermark and Gold Spot Cod. Estuary fishing is not weather dependant so most of these Cairns fishing tours operate daily and make for an ideal half day activity.

Beach Fishing - Cairns has nine main beaches north out of the city starting with Machans Beach, and all make for some great and easily accessible fishing spots for all ages. Palm cove jetty is one of the Northern Beaches most popular fishing spots where anglers regularly catch species such as mackerel, Giant Trevally or "G.T's" and shark. The jetty provides a safe platform making Palm Cove an ideal fun, family friendly outing.

River Fishing - River fishing takes place either a scenic drive north to the Barron and Daintree Rivers, or south via the Mulgrave Valley to the Russell or Mulgrave Rivers. Most prime tropical river and estuary fish can be caught from the Barron.Fish Tales Charters operates smooth water river fishing in the Russell/Mulgrave River located approx 40kms south of Cairns. It has premier sport fishing on offer, from bait to lure to fly-fishing. Commonly, Fish Tales River Fishing Charters can yield a catch of Barramundi, Queen Fish (Queenies), Grunter (Javelin Fish), GT's (Trevally), Salmon - King & Blue, Mangrove Jack and Fingermark in the saltwater, to the fresh water species of Jungle Perch and Black Bream.

Reef Fishing - Bottom fishing or Bottom Bouncing is a style of fishing most suited to catching reef dwellers. Great-tasting fish to be caught include spanish mackerel, coral trout, red emperor and nannygai or sweetlip. There are a numver of charter boats specialising in bottom fishing that operate from Cairns and Port Douglas daily. Blackout Sportsfishing takes a maximum of 3 anglers onboard a beautifully fitted Badjcraft Custom Aluminium, powered by an 115hp 4 stroke Suzuki. Blackout fishes at various reef and wreck sites for the numerous pelagic and reef species that inhabit this majestic region. Quality Rods, Reels, and Tackle are provided.

Game Fishing - From September through to December, the largest black marlin in the world migrate to the 150 mile stretch of the Great Barrier Reef between Cairns and Lizard Island. Serious big game anglers will fall hook, line and sinker to come to Cairns at this time of year and be a part of the action!

Gone Fishing - Off to catch me a marlin!

 

Reef Closures: 2013

Fishing within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, is regulated by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA).

Dates for Reef Closures:

2 October to 6 October 2013 and 31 October to 4 November 2013.
All dates are inclusive.

Queenslanders are reminded that all coral reef fin fish will again be off limits due to the coral spawning closure. The closure coincides with the new moon period when a large number of coral reef fin fish spawn. The fishing ban helps protect fish through this important part of their life cycle.
