Estuary Fishing Cairns

Let captain John Hangodi take you out on the estuary in Cairns.

With his 25 years of international guiding experience, including 15 years as a partner at the world famous Knight Inlet salmon lodge in B.C. Canada, John is excited to share his passion with everyone.

Our vessel

Our 7.5 metre custom vessel is powered by a 130 hp Honda four stroke.
And furthermore it has full shade cover and above all a toilet on board, making it one of the most modern estuary boats in Cairns.

Estuary Fishing Cairns takes you to an extremely well protected area, so even if the wind comes up you will still have a calm day of fishing.

We start the charter by throwing the cast net for live bait. Herring, prawns and mullet are best and usually easy to catch.

This is an exciting part of the trip as most likely not everyone not seen a cast in action.

You can help to quickly put the baits in the live well for the day’s use, before we head down the estuary in Cairns.

Our Estuary Fishing Cairns tours are suitable for adventurers of all ages and you don’t need to have previous experience in fishing.

Tour Inclusions

  • We venture up Trinity Inlet to catch barramundi, mangrove jack, queenfish, fingermark, travelly, salmon and many more hard fighting tropical species.
  • We split the day in two, with a morning charter for the early risers and an afternoon charter for the others.
  • The morning session is from 7:30 to noon and the afternoon charter is from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.
  • Both charters depart from b-finger at the Marlin Marina at the entrance to Trinity Inlet.
  • Dependant on your success and the size of your catch, it can be released after a photo or we are happy to clean and ice it on board so you can introduce it to the BBQ that evening, or maybe even ask your resort chef to prepare it for you.
  • All Sport fishing charters include quality tackle, bait and cold soft drinks.
  • We have a big esky/cooler/chilli bin on board, so bringing a few cold beers is not a problem.
  • The shared charters are great fun and the most popular.
  • You will enjoy meeting people from around the world, all after a relaxing day of fishing.
