Gone Fishing - Cooktown has been offering fishing and wildlife tours in Cooktown for 12 years and is Cooktown's premier guiding service.

Fishing - A host of different habitats are in easy reach from the headwaters of the local rivers chasing sooty grunter and jungle perch, down to the estuaries fishing for the iconic barramundi and mangrove jack; out to the Great Barrier Reef after queenfish, trevally, coral trout and a multitude of other tropical species.
