Fishing On-board the True North

A guide just for you

If you’re looking for experienced and knowledgeable fishing guides look no further than the guides on-board the True North. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an ‘expert’ you will benefit from local knowledge that ensures unequalled opportunity from the remote Kimberley to untouched West Papua and, the rarely fished islands of the Eyre Peninsula.

Variety is the spice

Our sailing schedule offers access to an array of species. You will be presented with convenient opportunity to do battle with some of the world’s most revered sports-fish including the iconic barramundi, the elusive mangrove jack, finger mark bream, golden snapper, jewfish, pink snapper, delectable whiting and even mighty sailfish!

On the Water

With six adventure boats (not zodiacs) accompanying the True North, guests have greater opportunity to do “what they want, when they want.” The luxury of so many tenders also means that we can always allocate craft to different fishing styles and, to varying degrees of experience. Fish in comfort and receive the individual attention that the True North is famous for.

In the Air

The ship’s helicopter also adds a unique dimension to fishing on the True North. Heli-fishing is one of our most popular activities - fly over stunning wilderness in air-conditioned comfort to an otherwise inaccessible location! Who could pass up the opportunity to fish where perhaps no one has fished before?

Nothing but the Best

The True North carries a full complement of high quality fishing equipment. Rods, reels and hand lines are provided for your complimentary convenience however keen anglers are welcome to bring their own gear (6-8kg bait casting outfits are recommended). Lures are available on a replace if lost basis.

Catch of the Day

Our chefs love to be a part of the fishing action – when the ‘hunters and gatherers’ return to their home away from home, they will delight in preparing your catch for lunch or dinner. And our chefs particularly enjoy mud crabbing – not only will they show you how to prepare unforgettable fare; they will also be right by your side when you do battle with these cantankerous adversaries!

Everyone is Invited

From the "never fished" to the "I’ve caught ‘em all" our guides encourage all on-board to join in the fun and multiple adventure boats always allow opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of fishing styles in small groups of equal ability!

And ladies please take note - fishing is not just for the men! In fact, on the True North it may just be the other way around! Things might start a little slowly but in our experience, once that first fish is in the esky – there’s no stopping the fairer sex! You may just surprise yourself – one of the common guest reactions is “I’ve never given fishing a thought – now I can’t get enough!”

We'll be Back!

Everyone on the True North is conscious of the fact that fishing in a wilderness area is a privilege. The True North is fully licensed for fishing and fishing regulations are strictly observed.

We never take more than a ‘taste’ and fishing operations are always conducted with the utmost care and respect. Wherever possible we practice 'catch & release' techniques and, we never permit any activity that might degrade fish habitat.
