Coral Sea Fishing

Norseman offers daily tours where you can try your hand at landing some of the best fighting and eating fish the Coral Sea has to offer.

Species such as Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Sea Perch (Nannygai), Mackerel, Cobia, Trevally, Cod, Spangled Emperor and Reef Red Bream (Mangrove Jack) will be targeted using either handlines or rods with overhead Penn reels, and whenever possible, float lines for the elusive GT (Giant Trevally), Spanish Mackerel, Tuna and Wahoo.

Want more, or just want to avoid the crowds?  Well, why not arrange a private charter and tailor-make a day to suit your needs.  You’ll never get bored with trolling, jig, popper, bottom and live bait fishing all on offer or why not cool your heels at one of the many pristine reefs.
