Fishing the Gulf of Carpentaria is awesome! The river systems and off shore grounds are packed with many arm breaking species, including jacks, grunter, cod, finger mark, trevally, sailfish, marlin and more. You might even spot a crocodile.

As for the different ways of catching them, the methods are endless. Hard body lures. Soft plastics. Surface lures. Poppers. Fly fishing and more.

Should we come across a fish with a severe case of lock jaw, the old live mullet should entice an early lunch bite.

When fishing the Gulf of Carpentaria, you aren’t restricted to the creeks and rivers; offshore fishing can be a fantastic way to break it up, adding an extra bonus of experiencing the different styles of fishing and species targeted.

Each day you will be accompanied by a fully qualified fishing guide, aboard a custom-built fibreglass, sport fishing tender. Their job is to ensure you have an unforgettable day fishing, teaching everyone on board about our untouched and unique fishery. We customize our trips to suit your group.
