Gone Fishing is a locally owned business operating in Cooktown since 2002.
Originally from the Cow Bay next to the Daintree Rainforest, Our guide Cody has been passionate about fishing since he first picked up a rod aged 5. Inspired by his surroundings, Cody spent most weekends and summer holidays fishing the local creeks and rivers. As an adult he fished along side professionals working at sea for days on end.
Cody has worked on commercial Trout fishing boats most of his life, scouring the Great Barrier Reef forever searching for new fishing ground.
Cody is the most experienced guide operating in Cooktown; the business has grown through word of mouth and repeat custom. Cody loves having beginners and kids on the boat and enjoys showing people tips to improve their technique and catch rate.
Cody’s other passion is hunting, camping and most things outdoors. Cody knows the rivers and surrounding area well, its very likely that you will see our resident croc’s and numerous other types of wildlife along the way!
Over the years we have taken part in a number of TV shows, these have given our business great exposure and have allowed us to meet some fishing and outback icons including Ray Mears, ET, Les Hiddins, Matt Watson and Ernie Dingo.
What makes us different? Our professionalism and consistent results. It doesn’t matter if you are doing a half day fishing charter or a 10 day fishing charter you will receive the same friendly, productive, value for money charter that will be remembered for a long time.
