Would you like a day fishing out on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef? Then join this Coral Sea Fishing tour onboard the MV Norseman. This tour departs daily and allows you to try your hand at landing some of the best fighting and eating fish the Coral Sea has to offer.
We are targeting table fish on this day tour using either hand lines or rod with overhead Penn reels, and whenever possible, float lines. Of course throughout the day we will encounter such species as Large Mouth Nannygai and Coral Trout. Sometimes though all the excitement and activity in the water brings along other fish such as Giant Trevally, Cobia and Spanish Mackerel
Don’ discount the use of hand lines. Using a hand line allows you to have better reaction time and hook that catch before they take your line into the coral! Professional Live Trout fishermen use hand lines to catch Coral Trout.
You will have about 4.5 hours of fishing time on this full day tour. You get to keep your own catch and it will be gutted and bagged ready for you to take home. There are a couple of restaurants in Port Douglas that will cook your fish for you for a nominal fee – we can let you know who they are. Any fish caught on the shared rod are shared with all guests.
Of course if ‘no take’ species such as Barramundi Cod, Maori Wrasse or Chinaman Fish are caught these will be thrown back. We also always adhere to bag limits and size restrictions.
Want more, or just want to avoid the crowds?
Well, why not arrange a private charter and tailor-make a day to suit your needs. You’ll never get bored with trolling, jig, popper, bottom and live bait fishing all on offer or why not cool your heels at one of the many pristine reefs. Just ask our friendly team and we can help you
