Hinchinbrook’s Fullon Fish’n Charters operates fishing charters in the Hinchinbrook channel from Lucinda in the south to Cardwell and Missionary bay in the north. With such an enormous protected system of waterways it can be fished all year round with different areas and species targeted due to tides and weather conditions. Time and return times for the days fishing means nothing because there is none, we go when it’s best fishing and return when the clients have had enough. There is no end to fishing charters available, from day trips to extended and corporate charters to personalised trips. Complete packages are on offer with everything taken into account for the away fisherman, comfort, food, heaps of fishing and fish filleted and frozen to take with them on return. All fishing gear, ice, bait, etc. is supplied. Day trips lunch and food is not supplied. Alcohol is BYO but remember to drink responsibly.


The Hinchinbrook Channel is situated about one and a half hours drive north of Townsville, and two and a half hours drive south of Cairns in North Queensland. My home town of Ingham is situated at the southern end and a 15 min drive to the boat ramp. For the fisherman doing a day trip all you need to do is get to the Dungeness boat ramp in Lucinda and the away fisherman arriving by plane would be to arrive at the Townsville airport and not have to worry about a thing with all inclusive packages available with pick up and return to the airport.


Missionary Bay

At the north of Hinchinbrook Island lies a large protected waterway with 9 large creeks running into it. It has large rock bars and deep holes in most creeks. Most fishing in this system is live bait fishing for Barra and Mangrove Jacks. Fishing charters to this water way leave from Cardwell at the northern end of the Hinchinbrook Channel .

Surrounding Creeks and Estuaries

The Hinchinbrook Channel to the north and the south is surrounded by fish rich waterways which are fed directly from the open ocean. Most of these systems are only a short drive from Lucinda making them ideal as a second option when the Hinchinbrook is not fishing well..

Hinchinbrook Channel

Barra fishing in the pristine waters of the Hinchinbrook Channel is a lure and live bait fisherman’s heaven. The channel waterways are largely protected from the weather making it fishable all year round. Clients can expect a wide variety of fish including Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Salmon, Finger mark, Trevally, Queenfish, etc. Fishing charters leave from Lucinda and Cardwell.
