About Fish City: Townsville Fishing Charters

Charters with Fish City

Fish City Charters caters for all types of fishing and all levels of angler experience with families and novice anglers most welcome.

Townsville fishing charters can be full or even half-day, or multi-day packages. These multi-day packages are entirely flexible and tailored to suit anglers’ desires as well as seasonal options.

3 Day options

The 3-DAY option is one of the most popular when anglers often choose to enjoy the first day bluewater fishing for sport and table fish including red emperor, coral trout and Spanish mackerel. The second day might be spent in pursuit of arguably Australia’s premier sportfish, the barramundi, while the third could find anglers casting surface lures for GT and queenfish and cobia, or perhaps strolling a mountain stream in search of exotic and challenging jungle perch. It’s your trip, so you choose what you want to do.


A personalised operation, each boat caters for a maximum 3 anglers offshore, and a maximum 4 anglers within partially smooth waters and estuary systems.

Two or more fully customised and surveyed boats might be used for parties of greater than 3 or 4 anglers, depending on options chosen.

We had a great four days with Eddie. He is a very knowledgeable and likable character with a good bank of bad dad jokes to keep you entertained. His gear is all good quality and reasonably maintained and he has a good variety of lures on hand.


I asked eddie if we could find a coral trout, he says I know just the spot. First drop a coral trout! We caught 15 species of quality QLD fish on our charter and a few sharks. My daughter (8yrs old) was thouroughly entertained by eddies jokes and tales. Well worth the money and I would recommend booking the boat for sure!


Enjoy the best fishing that tropical North Queensland and Townsville has to offer with the added bonus of breathtaking backdrops such as the Palm Island group and the World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island.

The fish rich waters of Bowling Green Bay – and the creeks and rivers within – promise an angling adventure not easily forgotten.

Whether casting lures or setting live baits for big predatory species, the surroundings alone often ensure fishing in Townsville’s North Queensland waters an incredible experience.

WE look forward to planning your fishing charter with you!
