Townsville Reef Fishing - 24-hour Wide Reef Experience Trip

After your 4pm departure it’s time to begin! You will start fishing at around 40 nautical miles. This takes about three and a half hours of travel and work your way out wider through the night.

It’s common that your night fishing will be based on Red Emperor and Large Mouth Nannygai. Of course their is a lot of by catch along with this. Spangled emperor, Cobia, Cod, Green Job Fish, Mangrove Jack and more!

Through the day time the focus is on Coral Trout but it is normal to catch Red Throat and other species with these. It’s possible to run out some balloons for Mackerel as well!

On the trip out and back to the reef clients are also welcome to put out a selection of high speed lures as quite often these will produce a Mackerel or Wahoo.

This trip is catered for with the highest quality meals – you need to keep those energy reserves satisfied so you can reel in your catch!

All fish are gutted, gilled and bagged up for you upon your return.
