The 14th biennial edition of the biennial North Australian FISH FINDER went on sale in April 2022.
If you love fishing, this is your book.
FISH FINDER is Australia’s most detailed fishing book, with micro maps of rockbars, reefs and wrecks, landbased and boating hotspots, holes, launch sites, river crossings and other important fishing access points.
The book covers most of the mainland coast, and is particularly detailed in the remote north where it is dubbed ‘the bible’.
FISH FINDER has the information you need to catch one (or more!) of the dozens of $10,000 barramundi released each year for the NT’s Million Dollar Fish promotion.
The book also has information about many other lucrative fishing competitions.
As well as revealing spots in detail, FISH FINDER explains regional fishing conditions, including weather, tides and seasonal fishing.
FISH FINDER’s NT coverage includes special detail on the famous Roper, Mary and Daly Rivers, including hazardous rockbars.
For the NT mob, this new edition has charts of previously unrevealed Shady Camp snapper and jewfish reefs.
There is a superb bathymetric map of Darwin Harbour with a Lat-Long grid for taking GPS marks off any feature that looks fishy. Just about every patch of reef is revealed.
For Queenslanders, there is exclusive multi-page aerial low-tide photography on Ayr, Mackay and Townsville creeks and rivers.
FISH FINDER 2022/23 gives you a chance to win two fantastic Lowrance HDS9 units (closing dates apply, be quick).
