Tour Overview

Whether you join us on a Northbound or Southbound voyage on this trip you’ll soon see the endless opportunities this trip has to offer. Fishable in almost all-weather conditions is what gives this region the upper hand. The options to fish the inner or outer reefs depending on where the fish are and our ability to run 30 miles if we need to find the fish is what will maximise your results during your week onboard with us in the Torres Strait. 

 

The hardline offers fast moving current lines for pelagics such as Spanish Mackerel and Gt’s to hunt in most times of the tide to the bait infested shoals that litter the inner reefs. The key point here is – we have options. Species you can expect to encounter are some of the usual suspects from GT’s, Spanish Mackerel, Trout, Red bass and the list goes on. There are also opportunities for groups to focus their attention on Saltwater flyfishing as we move through the area of vast sand flats and cays. 

 

Only accessible by large liveaboard vessels who have been given permission to fish the area by the custodians of the region is the fundamental reason why the fishing is just so good through here. Not just anyone can visit these regions, so when you join us on one of these trips you can truly count yourself as one of the lucky ones.
