Fantastic Fun. We caught so many big fish. I caught this beautiful Red Emperor
Best Cairns fishing charters ever.

Cairns Reef Fishing 

 On our Cairns fishing charters you can expect to target a huge range of tropical fish species such as Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Nannygai, Trevally, Cobia, Tuna and Spanish Mackerel to name just a few using fishing methods such as trolling, lure casting, jigging and bait fishing.

Monster Spanish Mackerel of 27 kilo
Golden Trevally are common on the Great Barrier Reef

 Because our Cairns fishing charters are for your private group only, tour starting times become fairly flexible but around  7-7.30 am seems to be the preferred  kick off time. From there it depends on your interests and preferences . Maybe  dropping baits on the reef edge for Coral Trout, Red Throat Emperor and other assorted reef fish or deeper water for Red Emperor, Cod and Nannygai. Maybe trolling for Spanish Mackerel, Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi. How about Jigging and Lure casting for Trevally?  Better still, how about a combination? The benefits of our small group, private charters is that you are welcome to choose your target species and fishing methods without fear of conflict to others on board. The tour will consist of just you, your friends or family and myself. With a maximum of only 4 people onboard you are assured of abundant fishing room, a dramatic increase of fishing action per angler ratio and enjoying the day with the company you would rather keep.

 All our Cairns fishing charters include the use of our high quality Shimano fishing rods and reels, filled with braid line including all terminal tackle and bait. Of course you are always welcome to bring your own secret weapon if you wish.

 On your Cairns fishing charters you will need to bring lunch, snacks, drink, sun protection and camera. Alcohol is permitted in moderation (cans preferred).
