REMOTE BARRA FISHING
FNSF’S remote Barra expeditions are tailored to the angler with a taste for adventure and coincides with the annual wet season run off from February to April. Catering for six guests, you depart Cairns or Port Douglas by helicopter for a magnificent 2 hour low level flight along the coast line then up Cape York to Princess Charlotte Bay.
You will rendezvous with their mothership, Blue Martini, then spend the next six days fishing aboard our 20′ Centre Consoles with our world class guiding team. You will target the likes of Barramundi, Fingermark, Queenfish, Nannygai, GT’s and a host of other fresh and saltwater sport fish in extremely remote waters very rarely fished. We even spend time chasing monster mud crabs. This trip is a truly remote and special experience.
The Northern Exposure charters run at different times throughout the year and cater for groups of up to six guests who meet the FNSF team aboard Blue Martini departing from either Port Douglas or Lizard Island. From the Centre Consoles you will fish the famous Ribbon reef flats, St Crispins, Escape and other reef systems which are rarely visited.
Using techniques from popping, jigging, trolling, fly and reef fishing you will target massive GTs’, Spanish Mackerel, Coral Trout, Wahoo, Tuna, Red Emperor and a host of other species. These trips coincide with the annual Giant Black Marlin season. We can also customise a mother ship package with our 40′ game boat Black Magic and a truly world class heavy tackle team.
