If you feel like wetting a line, they can take you to a variety of locations to try your luck. It simply depends on which fish species you are targeting and how much time you have. The local river systems are good for flathead, mangrove jack, grunter, barramundi and whiting to name a few, or if you prefer, you can target coral reef fin fish like coral trout, red emperor, nannygai and sweetlip around the islands and at the reef. The choice is yours!

Winter time is great for mackerel and their skipper knows where to find them. Bait, tackle, rod and reels are supplied (but bring your own gear if you prefer), plus an esky with ice to keep your catch fresh!
