One days fishing just isn’t enough? ……. Or you’ve had a taste of what we do on our Escape Day Trips and simply want more!
At “CSSS” we want you to have the sportfishing adventure of a lifetime and as such these extended safaris have been tailored to you; destinations, target species, techniques, and duration are all variables within your control.
Aligned with your choices, our experienced guides are there every step of the way making sure all your fishing requirements are met from tackle preparation and coaching, right through to landing and photographing your fish. Our support crew will see to it that your time off the water is just as well catered for as on it.
Our extended safaris step off from the port of Lucinda situated at the southern end of Hinchinbrook Island. You will explore the lesser travelled pristine outer reef systems, as well as the inshore areas surrounding Hinchinbrook Island, the Palm Island group and Lucinda. The fish are big and brash and the action is hot.
This is the kind of fishing where tackle and anglers are regularly put to the test. Picture yourself popping for GT’s, when suddenly a VW sized hole is left in the water where your popper used to be, your rod bends to full load as you set the hook and your line crackles off the spool even with 15kg of drag on; your arms strain from the pure strength of the local inhabitant you’ve just hooked as it heads back to the ledge it just swam out from; You are now pitted in an epic battle with a fish that most anglers only ever read about.
Our extended safaris run for 3, 4 or 5 days and operate on a private charter basis for a maximum of 3 anglers.
As we steam for the outer reefs each morning with Hinchinbrook Island disappearing behind us, you will truly believe you are in the middle of nowhere.
Lucinda Fishing Lodge is our base of operations, all the rooms at the Lodge are self contained and air-conditioned. Situated at the southern end of the picturesque Hinchinbrook Channel, approximately 3 hours south of Cairns, the Lodge provides an excellent point of disembarkment, with it's own private pontoon.
Get up of a morning have breakfast and step on to the boat moored at the pontoon, ready for an action packed days fishing; In the afternoon step off the boat ready for nibbles and drinks out on the balcony overlooking the Channel and Hinchinbrook Island; before heading over to the licensed restaurant directly across the road for the evening meal.
