The areas accessible from Townsville include the Barramundi rich waters of the Hinchinbrook Channel to the exceptional light tackle grounds of Cape Bowling Green with some of the best Juvenile Sailfish and Black Marlin fishing in Australia. The Freshwater reaches of the Ross River that runs through town is teaming with metre plus Barramundi and some real lure crunching mangrove jacks. During the summer months if there is good rain fall then the numerous weirs spread throughout the River are particularly good with Aplins weir really turning it on for Barramundi and Mangrove Jacks as this is the last weir in the chain where the fresh meets the salt.
Most of the creeks and rivers around Townsville are full of mud crabs and prawns not to mention the fish with Barramundi, Mangrove Jacks, Javelin Fish and Flathead just some of the many species available in these systems. Cleveland and Halifax Bay are also very productive with the winter months in particular turning on some great
pelagic fishing, with Queensland School Mackerel, Spotted Mackerel and the odd Spanish mackerel being landed at this time. Then there is Salamander Reef, Magnetic Island and the Palm Island group just offshore and this is where the monster Spanish mackerel and Giant Trevally really turn it on with 30kg fish not uncommon.
Last but not lest the Great Barrier Reef is only about 40km off Townsville with some of the most spectacular fishing on the planet, with Coral Trout, Red emperor, Large mouth Nannygai, Red Throat emperor and numerous other species on offer, it is simply every angler or spear fishers paradise. With all this fishing action on offer there is also a million and one ways to fish these areas and that is were we come in, we love it and you will to.
