Charters › Blue Water Light Tackle
The Cairns section of the Great Barrier Reef is internationally famous for its prime black marlin fishery. What should not be overlooked however, is the incredible array of light tackle sportfishing options. Almost every species of Pacific game fish inhabit the plankton and bait fish rich waters off Cairns, adjacent to the reef and continental shelf.
Imagine trolling rigged baits or deep diving minnow lures for the likes of small marlin, wahoo, spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi), barracuda, scaly mackerel, various trevally including GT's and sailfish. Seasons apply (refer chart).
On the right tackle, 12-20lb test, these tropical speedsters offer exceptional sportfishing opportunities. You are in prime company indeed.
Day charters from $395 per person with daily departures from Cairns Marlin Marina, Yorkeys Knob or Port Douglas Marina Mirage. Overnight and live aboard extended charters are also available.
