You must take a fishing charter out of Karumba when you’re in town. The natural choice has to be Kerry D Charters. They have been in business for ages and know all the right spots. Their price was very reasonable too at $140pp for about 4 hours.
Our trip was great with Paul (skipper) & Mick (decky) looking after us really well. The fish weren’t all that friendly. The water was just 19 degrees so a bit cool for a great catch but Paul & Mick tried so many spots trying to improve our chances.
We were about 1.5kms from shore and the water depth was about 1 metre on average. Could not believe that it was so shallow.
Merrisa was successful with 2 lovely blue threadfin salmon and I caught 4 catfish (throw back fish).
