The Daintree River

The Daintree Rainforest is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and the river flowing through it is abundant with fish. Make sure you remain vigilant when fishing on the Daintree River, as crocodiles call the ancient riverway home. Most Cairns boats can handle crocodiles though, so as long as you stay inside the vessel, you’ll be fine. Depending on the time of year you go and the spot you pick, you could catch; 

  • Mangrove jack
  • Barramundi
  • Jungle perch
  • Sooty grunters
  • Barracuda
  • Cod
  • Queenfish
  • Flathead
  • Sickle fish
  • Estuary cod
  • Bream

To access the Daintree River, Edge Marine recommend the Stacer Proline range of boats in Cairns. These boats are built with tough, pressed aluminium, making them perfect for rivers, estuaries, creeks, dams, and lakes. The 449S Proline Angler and the 389 Territory Striker stand out to us as fantastic for comfort, value, and easy maintenance. To check out our Stacer Proline boats for sale in Cairns, head on down to Edge Marine.

Over 40 species of fish live in this tidal estuary, making it an ideal location for those looking to find a fishing spot close to Cairns city.

  • Mangrove jack
  • Fingermark
  • Grand Travalley

Fitzroy Island

Just off the Queensland mainland is Fitzroy Island. This island looks like it came straight out of your imagination with soft, white sands and sparkling turquoise water. If you’re casting a line off Fitzroy Island, depending on when and where you’re fishing, you could bag;

  • Black marlin
  • Largemouth nanagai
  • Smallmouth nanagai
  • Shark
  • Trevally

When you’re fishing off Fitzroy Island, you’ll want to do so in style. While there are several boats in Cairns that would do the job nicely, Edge Marine recommend the Islander. This impressive-looking vessel comes in three different models, each as aesthetically pleasing as the last. You’ll be fishing in a beautiful location, in a beautiful boat; what more could you want?!
