Barramundi Fishing Charters

If you’re not marlin fishing you may as well be barra fishing!
Barramundi are of course on of our other great loves and we are lucky that the Fraser Coast offers barramundi anglers a couple of different options fishing with Luke and with or without KEKOA!

Since relocating to Hervey Bay in 2018, Luke has been spending many hours on the waters of Lake Monduran. And in February 2021 we launched a custom built 5.8m O’Brien Boat KOA specifically to target barra in the estuaries and dams.

Lake Monduran is only 4 hours from Brisbane and less than 2 hours from Hervey Bay. It is the largest barramundi stocked impoundment in Queensland and the most convenient to southern anglers!

At certain times of the year when fishing is hot at other locations Luke will schedule a Dam Tour to other locations including Peter Faust Dam at Proserpine. More about impoundment packages including barramundi charters at Lake Monduran.


Luke also targets saltwater barramundi and other species like threadfin salmon within the Sandy Straits.


Day Tripping

Our Fraser Island estuary fishing charters are generally departing River Heads boat ramp which provides convenient access to the Mary & Susan Rivers as well as various other spots along the estuaries of the Sandy Straits.

Luke lives at River Heads and typically spends most of his private fishing effort locally to the benefit of our clients.


KEKOA comfortably adds a mothershipping option for extended / live aboard trips inside of Fraser Island in the Sandy Straits. As well as the flexibility to move and explore this wonderful playground!

Estuary fishing during the day, put out a crab pot or two, and back to the comfortable accommodations of KEKOA at night.
