Explore the pristine waters off the coast of Queensland and have a fishing adventure with Paradise Sportfishing Adventures! Captain John specializes in calm-water fishing excursions throughout the productive Cairns Trinity Inlet.
You’ll join him on his 25’ custom-built estuary boat, propelled by a 130 HP Honda four-stroke outboard engine. The boat can accommodate up to 8 anglers per trip, so it’s great for some fun with a group of friends. It also sports a full cover shade top and a toilet. You’ll be able to cover the Inlet in both speed and comfort.
All trips include quality fishing gear and bait. You’ll use Shimano Raider rods and Spinning Reels. There’s a large cooler on board with plenty of ice and you can bring drinks and snacks. Should you catch a legal-size fish, it can be cleaned and iced on board. There is an excellent restaurant at the marina that can cook your fish for lunch or dinner.
Each trip begins with the collection of live baits using a cast net. This is a very interesting part of the charter, especially if you have not seen a cast net in use. Specific bait varies depending on the season, with Sardines and Herring being the most effective and easiest to catch.
After securing the bait, it’s time to move up the Trinity Inlet, where depending on the season you’ll be going up against the likes of the famous Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Queenfish, Trevally, Salmon, and Fingermark. The day is typically split in two, with an early morning charter aimed at the early risers, and an afternoon trip for those that like to sleep in.
Join Paradise Sportfishing Adventures and have an unforgettable time under the Australian sun!
