Skipper John Haenke is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge and passion with fellow anglers by taking them to the most productive fishing grounds which also happen to be located in the most scenic locations. He specialises in fly fishing: from a basic introduction to the art of fly fishing - to experienced fly anglers - everyone is welcome! He also caters to lure anglers, and offers services to those who need a bit of tuition, or none at all!
Charters operate out of Hervey Bay, and also the Capricorn Coast area, one of Queensland’s best kept secrets. For most anglers, sight fishing in shallow clear water is as good as it gets. It’s a spectacular coastline, with some of the best flats fishing in the country, offering a good variety of species including Golden Trevally, Permit, Giant Trevally and Queenfish.
Since this area gets very little fishing pressure, it’s not unusual to get dozens of sight cast shots per day. Guided Fishing DownUnder also offers charters out of Hervey Bay, targeting a number of species including Longtail Tuna, Queenfish, Golden Trevally, Barramundi and Threadfin Salmon.
You will fish aboard a 18 foot TABS aluminum fishing boat, originally built in 2012 and powered by a 130 HP Yamaha engine. The speedy vessel will take you to the best fishing grounds quickly, and also prove convenient when moving between productive fishing spots.

Had an amazing experience with John not only did he guide me to catch my first barramundi but we also caught four consecutive fish after that would highly recommend him to anybody in the area looking for a very professional experience
