Fishing Cape York – Land of the Barramundi
Join filmmakers and adventure anglers, Josh and Jamie as they embark on an epic fishing trip to Cape York in northernmost Australia. The Cape is one of the remotest areas of Australia and home to a terrific array of sport fishing species including the most famous of all Australian fish, the hard fighting Barramundi. Using a 56ft cruiser as their mothership, the guys are well equipped with fishing and camera gear to capture the best fishing that Cape York has to offer. Arriving by plane, they first scout the area with a helicopter trying to identify the best locations. There are just so many places to fish here with lagoons, mangroves, inlets, rivers and reefs, and almost certainly the fish here won't ever have seen a lure so hopes are high as they start fishing. Day one sees the weather gods play up with a huge downpours of rain but this doesn't stop the team as they fish the mangroves and catch several nice Barramundi as well as Blue and Threadfin Salmon. With a break in the weather, the fishing hots up with more stunning, aerobatic Barra coming to the guys. After a while in this area, they realise that all the rain has coloured the water too much so decide to move location, South in search of clearer conditions. Finding another inlet, the guys find some stunning mangrove and are soon into more hard fighting Barramundi. As well as the terrific boat fishing, the team experience some great action from the shore using light tackle spinning and fly rods to catch Queenfish.
With some incredible scenery, and amazing wildlife shots including some big saltwater crocodiles, this film gives a great insight into the spectacular fishing to be had on Cape York.
