Fishing in the Daintree
Go fishing when you're staying in the Daintree/Cape Tribulation area; there's a few fishing boats available to charter on the Daintree river, or you can rent your own boat. The boats come and go a bit so we can't keep up to date info here but first find yourself some accommodation in the Daintree and your host will find you a boat then.
New South Wales fishing
Fishing report by Froggy: I have actually just returned from a 2 day Game Fishing Trip to Bermague on New South Wales Sapphire Coast. I have always dreamed of catching a Black or Striped Marlin on the high seas, and guess what.. I caught a 100-110 kg - 244lbs - Striped Marlin on my first try. It is very hard to describe the feelings of having a screaming reel in your hand, and wondering,, How can I actually reel this Monster in... he is pulling so hard, and I felt so tiny hanging on to the rod, and winding as fast as possible, then having this Fish take over, and I end up further away from him as when I first hooked on. Anyway... after a titanic struggle for 45 min, with a massive amount of help from the skipper, using his boat handling skills to take up the slack on the line, moving his 30ft boat in and out like it was a 12 ft tinny.... I finally got him along side,,, Yes! - I Tagged and released, (T.R.)

Bare hand barra fishing! Some of the most amazing fishing I have ever seen was in Mataranka, Northern Territory, where a bloke catches barramundi with his bare hands. He will stand in the water holding a bit of bait and when the barra goes for it he will shove his hand up its mouth ( making use of the fact barra don't have teeth) and lift him out of the water.
