With the Great Barrier reef just a stone’s throw from shore, Townsville’s inshore fishing sees plenty of beautiful and exciting fish pass by. Ian Moody Sportfishing promises you a thrill-seeking trip, going after a range of prized and delicious fish. With local guide Ian Moody at the helm, you’ll hit all the productive fishing spots, and he’ll do everything he can to help you have a successful day on the water.
The 18’ custom craft Cairns saltwater fishing boat can cater to up to 4 guests. A light and nimble vessel, she’ll take you cruising across the water at speed. Thanks to her wireless trolling motor, she’s equally capable in the shallows and will help you quietly creep up on your prey. Using the latest rods and reels, you’ll have the edge over your target fish, as you troll and bottom fish throughout your trip.
You’ll start your trip by going after live bait, before heading to rich fishing grounds, which will give you a full angling experience. Hit the productive waters south of Townsville or north around Hinchinbrook Island. Along the shallow inshore waters and brackish rivers, you’ll have the chance to troll or bottom fish to get your fix of fishing.
Some of Australia’s most cherished fish call these waters home, so get ready to be amazed. You’ll be wowed by the dazzling colours of Golden Trevally and Nannygai, while Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, and Mackerel will make you work hard to earn their meat.
Everything you need for a productive day is waiting on board. Just bring your own food, drinks, and suncream along, and make the most of your time in these rich waters. Get in touch with your guide Ian if you would like to be picked up in the Townsville or Ayr region, and it’s off you go!
