Fishing Townsville

3219 Views 12 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Geejay
I'm heading up to Townsville for a week at the end of this week, and I'm aiming to rack up a few hours on the water. Not sure how I'll wrangle it yet, but where there's a will there's a fish. Any regulars here who are local to the area? I'm looking for a few pointers on where I might want to try, and what I might want to prepare for. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. :)

Mate you will have a ball :D I am situated a little south of Townsville. All the fish mentioned give a hard pull and are on the go. Water temp is still right for the mackerel.

Large dusky flathead will be coming on to laying their eggs on the flats also. Jacks are coming on though haven't got one yet. Barra are on as well, but don't seem to like the clearer water creeks l venture into. I wuold be a little wary of the murky water stuff. Crocs are coming more active this time of year.

Bring your wire trace and HB's for a troll. Friday l got 5 hits. Only landed one spottie mackerek (60cms). Lost one prong off a trebble with one hit (make sure you have strong trbbles on). Probably lost it to a large toad fish.
