FISHING INFORMATION

FISHING INFORMATION

Fishing Cairns has been designed to inform and enlighten you, the visiting angler, on all matters fishy. To help make up your mind as to what to target, the local environments, where to fish, when to fish, and what to use.

We’ve got weather and tides, and fishing reports, and we even show you how to tie a good knot.

Most of this information for Tropical North Queensland wasn’t available in one place on the internet so we decided to knock it up for you. Some information is here on the Fishing Cairns site, while other information is available externally on other sites.

Barotrauma Release

Fishers from Tully to the Daintree are benefiting from a new hands-on model which shows how to release fish with barotrauma.

Barotrauma occurs when a fish is caught at depths of over 10 metres. As it surfaces,
the fish’s swim bladder swells due to the expansion of gases. Symptoms can range
from a hard, swollen stomach to extreme cases where the stomach is forced out the
fish’s mouth. The fish’s chances of survival is increased if treated before release.
