8歳の息子に確実にバラマンディを釣らせたい！という思いから訪れました。ドッグフードみたいなエサを使うのですが、なかなか釣れないでいるとオーナーのおじさんが出てきて秘策を教えてくれました...！なるほど、これなら必ず釣れる(爆笑)！70～80cm級を５匹くらい釣って大満足！ケアンズ近郊で絶対にバラマンディを釣りたい人にお勧めします。但し、周りにはこの他にはお店も何もありませんのでご注意を。 more »8-year-old son absolutely want to have caught barramundi! Came from the feeling. Came out clean and use food like a dog, but it has, and told me a secret. Indeed, it must be fished (lol)! 70-80 cm to 5 of them, and very happy! It is recommended to people in the vicinity of Cairns absolutely want to barramundi fishing. However, around the other shops also not so be careful.
Nice enough place. But like others have said. Catch a Barra. Is not what it seems. It's a bit of a expensive scam. * A little pond with smallish fish. * fishing gear designed not to catch fish. ( crappy lures with 1 tiny hook, the hooks on fishing rods are small & barely fits the pellet (which is only bait permitted) on it. The pellet is very hard & can't be threaded on hook. Rather it fits in the curve of the hook, covering the hook tip. So fish take it, but rarely get hooked & hooks are not tied properly, & knots regularly slip when you do get a hook up. I caught 2 fish only after cutting of hooks & gear & doing my own knots on line & hooks, after loosing 2 previous hook up. 1 wasn't hooked properly because of oversized pellet covering the hook tip. The other lost because knot slipped on other hook up. Also I made the pellet a little damp so I could put the hook through it & split it in half so the hook tip was free & exposed. Things a novice wouldn't work out. * the owner uses 15min of your $60 hour fishing time,to explain rules. & hovers around you when actually fishing. A bit uncomfortable. *overall very disappointing, frustrating & a waste of cash, seriously. Camping ground & other things may be good. But as far as catching a barra. Not the place to go Really shonky practice's going on here. Stay clear
Loved it, good fun, easy and friendly.
