Fishing, Cairns: 5 reviews and 11 photos

  Remember Rules and Regulations

When you live in Cairns every second 4x4 has the spare wheel cover displaying * Don't Follow Me, I am Going Fishing*
There are so many places to fish here, you can go to the local creeks ( beware of the crocs), you can go to the inlet ( again crocs) and then there is the big one, out on one of the charter boats to the reef.
Also from Cairns there are fishing tours to the Cape.

There are so many charters you could chose. I would suggest that you do some reading and see what suites you.
If you are a boatie and hire a boat, be aware that there are VERY strick rules as to where you are allowed to fish around the reed area.There are HUGE fines for not following the rules.

There are also a number of large retail outlets where you can buy fishing tackle and all other bits and pieces you may need, from the very expensive to the cheap little hand line or crab net.

I would suggest that you go online and check this out, also once here you head to the marina and you will find heaps of boats to inquire about this sport.
