Northern Conquest Charters

Perkins Street West
Railway Estate QL, Australia

Northern Conquest Charters runs year round trips around the estuaries and reefs in search of some fine and feisty table fare. Here you will find calm waters, a flexible boat to get you to the productive fisheries, and a professional guide to show you around.

Operating out of Townsville, Queensland, Northern Conquest Charters has fishing packages for rookie anglers and seasoned fishos. These waterways offer both big game fish, but also incredible fishing opportunities inshore as well. You will find famous Barramundi here, alongside some of the juiciest reef species, such as Snapper, Emperor, Coral Trout, and many more.

The action is consistent year round, and the Northern Conquest will cater to your needs. They run full day trips that give you plenty of time for fishing. Choose estuaries and creeks and go fishing for Barra, Fingermark, and Mangrove Snapper. If you’re feeling like reef fishing, the crew has just what you need. Book a spot and go fishing with your friends and family.

You will be fishing from a 20’ Javelin center console. She is powered by a 250 HP Honda engine. Easily cruising around the estuaries, the boat will put you on fish in no time. She can take up to four people. The boat comes equipped with the navigational gear, a live bait well, and stores the fishing gear and safety equipment. It’s a simple and reliable boat, just what you need for this terrain.

When you’re packing for the trip, make sure to bring a hat, sunblock, and sunglasses. You’ll also want to prepare food and drinks. The fishing license is included in the trip, and all the fishing gear is waiting for you onboard. Remember to bring a camera!

If you want to chase game fish, Northern Conquest has other boats in the fleet. When you’re done fishing for Barra, scroll down to see available spots on other vessels.
