If you are ready for an awesome adventure down under, Hook Up Fishing Charters is for you. Come along with your friends, family, or even share a trip with anglers you’ve yet to befriend, everyone is welcome on board.
Captain Shawry will take you to some of the most pristine fishing locations in North Queensland. Fishing Australian inshore waters and rivers is an experience like no other and never disappoints. You really don’t have to travel far to be on the fish, just need to get in front of the inlet and you are good to go.
Hook Up Fishing Charters boasts a 2012 16’ Cairns custom boat, which can comfortably fit 4 anglers without crossing rods. With a 60 HP Yamaha engine, and a cruising speed of 28 knots, you’ll be on the fish before you know it. Along with fishfinder and Capt. Shawry’s 20 years experience fishing in this area, you’ll have your lines in the water and reeling in your dream catch in no time.
You can expect a huge variety of fish on these trips. Everything from Spanish Mackerel, Giant Trevally, and Snapper, to Coral Trout, Nannygai, Barramundi, Grunter, and plenty more. Barramundi are Australia’s most sought-after sport fish, and are incredibly tasty too! Capt. Shawry will take you up the creeks to try your hand at reeling them in.
Kids are welcome on board – a firm favorite for them is mud crabbing, which can be done on all private trips. Beginners and experienced anglers will love these trips and the fishing opportunities they offer.
Capt. Shawry knows which fish will bite when, so whichever trip you choose, at whatever time of the day, he will get you on the fish and your cooler filled up. He is happy to fillet whatever you catch – you only need to decide how to cook it!
