White-knuckle Fishing

Bluewater Sportsfishing

Our bluewater fishing is second to none. All the reefs and islands around the tip of Australia provide a perfect hiding place for baitfish as they escape the current generated by the Arafura sea and the Coral sea pouring back and forth through the Torres Strait, a piscatorial predator’s heaven.

As every fisherman knows, find the bait find the fish, and there is bait everywhere.

 Come fishing with us and enjoy every fishing option ever invented. Trolling for macks, popping for GTs, throwing slugs at tuna, stick baits at coral trout, flicking for barra and jacks, jigging for bottom beasts.

Spanish mackerel, barracuda, queenfish, cobia, giant trevally, longtail tuna, all of them tough enough to turn your knuckles white holding onto that buckling rod for dear life.

So round up a few of your best mates come and fish with Cape York Sportsfishing!
