About us

Tim uses two custom built 23ft 'Stinger Longboats' for coastal, estuary and island sportfishing. These boats are well equipped for tropical sportfishing and have swivel seating for travel comfort and full length handrails for added passenger safety. To access the pristine freshwater upper reaches of the Jardine river, we use an 18ft flat bottom punt, powered by a jet outboard. This craft can travel in less then 4" of water and can go to and from shallow water areas with a degree of certainty that no other craft can match.


Your host, Tim Freebody

All boats are equipped with quality balanced spin, bait-caster or fly tackle.

When fishing conditions are right, visiting anglers can live the type of North Queensland angling adventure that thousands dream about, some have experienced and many have yet to enjoy.

With both the East and West Coasts of the 'Tip' to fish, we are blessed with daily options of fishing locations, and the species we can catch. Estuary Fishing includes the Jardine River, River 1 and River 2 on the west coast and Australias largest pristine Mangrove system the Jacky Jacky on the east coast. Such species as Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Tarpon, Salmon, Fingermark, Grunter, Cod, Bream, Saratoga and many more are found in these rivers.

Blue water fishing is avaliable with tropical species such as Spanish Mackerel, Giant Trevally, Queenfish, Tuna and a variety of reef fish including, Coral Trout, Spangled Emperor, Nannygai etc

TIM'S MOTTO IS 'FISH FOR THE FUTURE' AND WHILE A FISH FOR DINNER IS WELCOME, WE FULLY SUPPORT CATCH AND RELEASE FISHING!
