Australia boasts one of the finest and well managed fishing fleets in the world. Black Marlin fishing at it’s finest on the Great Barrier Reef. The fishing is primarily tag and release, with large fish or world records only being taken. The Great Barrier Reef area of Cairns and Lizard Island is known world wide as the place to come to fish for ‘granders’. A quick glance at the record books will confirm Cairns as the fishing Capital of the world.
Fishing can be organized in many ways..
1.Working from a mother ship which is anchored behind the reef.
2. A self-contained game fishing boat which facilitates both fishing and live-aboard. This option gives the angler the ability to be able to move where the fish are.
The fishing grounds range from Lizard Island (150 miles north of Cairns) to slightly south of Cairns. Because of this distance it is sometimes advantageous to fly by seaplane to meet the vessel or a commercial flight to Lizard Island. Flexibility of charter services exist and trips ranging from day trips out of Cairns to extended fishing trips can easily be arranged. The Great Barrier Reef offers good anchorages and the ability to move to find the large concentrations of Billfish. Whether fly fishing, light tackle record fishing or heavy tackle, we can cater for all your needs. The opportunity also exists to take advantage of diving, snorkelling and reef fishing in a variety of locations.
