COVID-19 Update: To help us with Safe Work Practices, we are introducing the following: All customers should wash hands prior to boarding and hand sanitizer and/or the use of a bucket of water and soap will be provided. The vessel will be thoroughly disinfected after each charter. We have downloaded the COVIDSafe app and we recommend our customers do the same. We ask everyone to respect each other’s space/social distancing - let common sense prevail. These procedures are subject to change as necessary. And lastly, just come along and have fun! Your hosts Darryl & Raewyn
Fish Tales Charters offers exciting estuary fishing adventures in the beautiful Trinity Inlet in Cairns, Australia. Skipper Darryl Wilson has been fishing the local waters for over 20 years, so he’ll help you make the most of your day in these prolific waters!
You will fish aboard the River Rocket – a 20’ boat designed for the estuaries and river systems in Cairns. Powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine, it’s fast and reliable when getting to the desired fishing areas. Fitted with the latest electronics, it will easily reveal what lies beneath the waterline.
The area is famous for the open waters, creeks, and the deep channel of the Cairns Estuary System. These waterways are an important part of the breeding cycle of juvenile fish and offer exceptional fishing for adult species.
Your targeted species will include Grunter, Blue Salmon, Queenfish, Giant Trevally, Threadfin, Mangrove Jack, Gold Spot Estuary Cod, Bream, Golden Trevally, Flathead, Hairtail, Tarpon, and the prized catch Barramundi.
Skipper Darryl will supply all bait – live and dead, as well as tackle, top quality rods, and Penn reels. You’ll get bottles of water, and the skipper will happily give advice on how to catch your target fish. Please bring along sunnies, a hat, a camera, and a few beers if you’re up for it.
Join Fish Tales Charters and explore these beautiful waters on the River Rocket, making some unforgettable memories!
