G&T Fishing School & Charters

Townsville Marina
Townsville City QL, Australia

G&T Fishing School & Charters specialise in lure casting and fly fishing, and offer charters along the tranquil waters of Townsville. Choose between their half and full day trips, or embark on a multi-night adventure to get the most out of this picturesque region.

You will head out on the 20ft “Crews Control”, a recently refurbished custom made Bass boat that is perfect for sport fishing. Its new 140HP Suzuki engine will ensure you arrive swiftly and safely to the fishing grounds, allowing for maximum fishing time. The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder, as well as 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. Seating and space is available for up to three anglers, and the boat’s icebox ensures that you can kick back with an ice cold beer or soft drink.

Take advantage of Captain Graham’s knowledge of the local waters, and be taken to areas even the “locals” don’t know about. While on charter, you will target estuary species such as the sought after Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Fingermark and many more.

Alongside their fishing charters, G&T also offer tutorials, and Captain Graham 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 charter with G&T today.

I found my trip with G&T a wonderful experience. The equipment provided was top quality accompanied with a friendly guide. His knowledge of the area was good and his friendly nature made the trip a relaxing and enjoyable one. Fish were caught as I was taken round the tranquil areas of townsvilles coast. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. I will surely book another trip with G&T fishing charter.
