TOWNSVILLE FISHING CHARTERS

With Eddie Riddle’s Fish City CHARTERS!

Half, full or multi-day Townsville fishing charter packages, flexible and tailored to suit anglers’ desires as well as seasonal options including both bluewater and estuary fishing options.

THE LOCATION:
TOWNSVILLE, NORTH QUEENSLAND

Enjoy the best fishing charter opportunities that Townsville and tropical North Queensland have to offer with the added bonus of breathtaking backdrops including Magnetic Island, the Palm Island group and World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island.

 

Meanwhile, the fish rich waters of Bowling Green Bay – and the creeks and rivers within – promise an angling adventure not easily forgotten. Potentially, the fish of a lifetime awaits your very next cast!

The FISH

Our most popular species include arguably Australia’s premier sportfish, the barramundi. Or chance a cast for a jack or fingermark, equally challenging and great on the plate!

Bluewater anglers also enjoy casting surface lures for GT, queenfish and cobia.Β  Northern bluefin or longtail tuna are speedsters that will also test your skills!

Meanwhile, quality table fish such as red emperor, coral trout and Spanish mackerel are also plentiful in Townsville waters.

And should you want to try something different, perhaps walk a mountain stream in search of exotic and challenging jungle perch, barra, jacks and tackle testing sooty grunter!

Townsville:
Destination FISHING

With more than 320 days of sunshine each year, fishing is considered the local pastime… and we have some great options for you!

Conditions not great but the lad got to bend a rod and was dragged around the boat a few times by unstoppables!
