You can expect excellent fishing in October with the warming temperature firing many species up.
The barramundi fishing is great in the right areas and Townsville is an ideal location with plenty of creeks and rivers, which are close and a wide variety of ones that are within an hour’s drive. Giving the avid angler a place to fish with no crowds and good fishing opportunities.
The weather is well and truly heating up and the water temperatures are following suit, this results in the north’s favourite fish becoming increasingly active – barra.
Barra are a wonderful fish for many reasons but one of them is that they can be effectively targeted on a wide variety of techniques. One of the more popular techniques of late has been jigging soft vibes and sinking lures in the deeper water. It is no new fact that big fish prefer the deep water and by fishing in these areas you have a much better chance of hooking up to your next PB.
