For a bit of education and adventure we begin our half day morning or half day afternoon fishing tour with the catching of live bait with a cast net to ensure we tempt those hungry fish little wrigglers.

This in itself is an experience for those younger anglers who may not have had the opportunity to try their hand at bait fishing before.

Our Cairns fishing tours cater for all experience levels, with bait; tackle and an experienced guide on board, they promise to teach even the most novice anglers the right technique of either live, lure or fly fishing.

All our Cairns fishing trips begin with the collection of live bait with a cast net and include quality fishing equipment.

What to bring?

Sun protection clothing, camera to catch all the excitement and a few cold beverages is ok too…

Can I take my catch with me?

Absolutely! Dependent on size your guide is more than happy to clean and ice your catch ready for you to take home or back to your Cairns Holiday Accommodation for dinner.
