Fishing in Karumba is nothing short of fantastic. You can choose to target estuary species in the Norman River or head offshore for larger pelagics. It takes some time to wire the place as there is only one tide a day. Target species include, Barramundi, blue salmon, grunter, Spanish mackerel, queenfish, and cobia. You really need to consult the tide chart to do well here and throw out any preconceived notions about where you’d normally expect to catch these fish.
The Town Boat ramp.
Karumba has two excellent boat ramps; one at the point and one in town. The town ramp is the most protected and also features a floating pontoon. Both ramps are multi-lane and there is adequate parking.
The ‘Big Barra’ at Normanton.
For my first trip, I launched at the Point ramp and headed upstream in the Norman River. I was fishing with Brisbane friend and fellow traveller expert and we both had never fished here before. We headed up past the powerlines which is about 12 kilometres upstream. We tried for a barra before anchoring out the front of a creek and fishing pilchards on the bottom. We proceeded to catch catfish and some small grunter before I managed to land a reasonable sized Barramundi and Jewel fish. We didn't tried spots before heading back to fish under a derelict jetty. This provided shade for us and shelter for the fish. We then proceeded to catch about five different species of fish; Barra, cod, grunter, threadfin salmon, steelbacks and more catfish. We had constant action for about 2 hours and ended up catching about 30 fish. We used cubes of pilchard for bait and a size 2/0 hook.
