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 Barramundi, Golden Snapper and Jewfish to name but a few. Trolling around the mouth of the river can produce great results, especially for big Barra and bait fish such as Javelin and Salmon. There are two boat ramps at Karumba which are useable on most tides, but if you don’t have a boat there are guides, charters and boat hire aplenty up here.
Further upstream towards the town of Normanton is a wealth of creeks that feed into the main waterway. Trolling around the rocky tidal stretches with a shallow-diving lure in front of the creek mouths often secures a decent sized Barra. The Baffle Group of Islands just north of Normanton is also a great spot for variety, with the sandbars and creek mouths holding Barra, Salmon and Queenfish.West of Karumba is the Bynoe River, where there is some great fishing to be had along the mouth and the muddy foreshore west of the mouth. This area holds large numbers of Blue Salmon and good Grunter and Jewfish can be found along the sandy foreshore just about a mile east of the Bynoe River. Mud Crabs are another great catch from the Bynoe and the trolling further upstream isn’t bad either!
Watch a kangaroo in the Australian outback, and you’ll notice something strange—when they walk, they have five “legs.” As they graze on grasses and shrubs, they place their tails on the ground in time with their front legs, forming a tripod like arrangement that supports their body while they bring their hind legs forward. Now, a study has shown that kangaroo tails are much more than just a passive crutch; they also play an active role in powering the animals’ unique, five-limbed walk
