Guided Fishing DownUnder

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Guided Fishing DownUnder, lead by Nathan Johnston, take pride in delivering the very best fishing experiences in Rockhampton, the Fitzroy and the Capricorn Coast region of Queensland, Australia. Our chartered fishing trips are guided by either Nathan Johnston or John Haenke, one of the all-time greats of Australian fishing.

Fish the Fitzroy, Rockhampton is the home of the Barramundi! Explore the river, estuaries and delta of this vast system targeting Barra and King Threadfin. Fish for Saratoga in the unspoilt tributaries of the Fitzroy.

Target Permit and other fly species on the great array of flats in the Capricorn Coast area. Marvel at the beauty of the Keppel Islands and Great Barrier Reef, while targeting a range of pelagic and reef species. The fishing options are endless, but one thing is for sure, you’ll have a day to remember on the water!

Charters include pick up from accommodation, lunch, snacks and drinks as well as all fishing equipment.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.

Services

From $500 to $600

Half Day Fishing Charter of around five hours. This includes pick up from accommodation, snacks and drinks as well as all fishing equipment.

Half day charters target barramundi and king threadfin and due to time constraints can only focus on fishing in the Rockhampton town and upper reaches of the Fitzroy River estuary. In the interests of improving the likelihood of your fishing success, half day charters are not offered when the Fitzroy is in flood with very dirty water conditions and for a short period of time after flooding until fishing conditions improve.

They offer a personalised charter where it is only your party on the boat, they do do split bookings or add other people to make up numbers. If you book as a single angler, it will be one on one with either of their excellent guides, Nathan Johnston or John Haenke.

Family Friendly

From $800 to $900

Full Day Fishing Charter (minimum 8 hours). This includes pick up from accommodation, lunch, snacks and drinks as well as all fishing equipment.

Full day charters include your choice of the following fishing experiences:
– Barramundi and King Threadfin charters anywhere in the extensive Fitzroy River system including downstream of Nerimbera Boat Ramp or departing from Port Alma boat ramp.

– Keppel Bay pelagic, flats and reef fishing departing from Rosslyn Bay Boat Ramp.

– Sighcasting for Saratoga in western impoundments departing from Rockhampton.

– Other options depending on your interest and where the fish are biting!

It would take more than a week on the water to see the entire Fitzroy River and Delta, not including coastal or freshwater fishing, so why not make the most of your time with them and book a few days to better explore the great fishery they have in the Capricorn Region! They offer a personalised charter where it is only your party on the boat, they do do split bookings or add other people to make up numbers.
