Karumba QLD

Post by hurricane » Fri Jan 18, 2013 6:38 am

Hi everybody
The wife and I are heading to Karumba for the month of May, we have not been here before but we have fished the NT for barra and Jacks and the like.
Can any body give us some reference to what reefs/holes are worth taking a look at.
We have our own boat 455 bay raider set up for some boat based camping .
We are staying at Karumba point van park as a base but would like to spend a few days at a time camping from the boat.
The boat has a 50 horse mariner with a 60l tank so we should be able to travel about 40 n/miles each way
We will be chasing the obviuos fish but would like to try for some black jew and maybe some spanyards and snapper
Any info will be greatly appreciated
Cheers

Head up into van diemens inlet or even further up to duck/Gilbert and you will find some good barra fishing!

They are marked on a map. There was an article published a while ago called gulf barra oddyssey or something like that where a guy towed a big boat and a few smaller boats up from Townsville. Would give you a rough idea of logistics and an idea of what the fishing would be like

There are a few wrecks off the coast there that fish well if you can get someone to help you out with the marks. Good for spanish and chopper!
