G&T Fishing School & Charters

Come and enjoy your day on the tranquil waters of Townsville with G&T Fishing School & Charters! Captain Graham Knight specialises in lure casting and fly fishing, and he’ll take you to secret fishing spots no one really knows about.

You will head out on the Crews Control, a recently refurbished 10’ custom made bass boat, perfect for sport fishing. The boat is equipped with a wireless trolling motor to allow you to approach those spooky fish quietly. To add to your sight fishing experience, the boat also includes a poling platform. It can accommodate up to 3 anglers.

All the fishing equipment will be waiting for you on board, as well as a range of artificial lures. For those with a little more experience, there’s fly fishing on board as well, just let your captain know you’re up for a challenge.

Choose between half and full day trips, or embark on a multiday adventure to get the most out of this picturesque region. You’ll target estuary species such as Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, and Fingermark.

Capt. Graham also offers tutorials since he is passionate about passing on his fishing knowledge. No matter if you are a beginner, or a pro looking to learn a new style, he can teach you the basics of fishing, or go more in-depth on how to interpret tides and water conditions.

There is no better way to spend your day than on the water fishing, so go with a local and book your trip with G&T Fishing School & Charters!
