Fishing at Karumba

There are so many options when it comes to fishing at Karumba that sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin! A good spot for starters is the Norman River, where you’ll find huge fish like.

The Barramundi is widely regarded as Australia’s premier native fishing sport and the Gulf Country in Tropical North Queensland offers excellent opportunities to target this much sought after species.

Regarded as a true sporting fish with great fighting ability, the bite is sudden and savage and once hooked barramundi perform aerobatics and repeated powerful runs for cover in snags. The Australian record catch for a Barra is 37.85kg. Size and bag limits do apply.

Here in Tropical North Queensland we have two species, the blue salmon and the threadfin or king salmon as it is called in Queens land. Our species are great sport on light tackle and readily take lures or flies when fishing for Barramundi. Its firm white flesh is arguably better eating than barramundi, easy to fillet and freezes quite well. Average captures vary from 50cm to just under 1 M., and size and bag limits do apply.
