Cairns Reef Fishing Charters Info

Cairns Fishing Charters:

Cairns Reef Fishing provide the best fishing charter trips in Cairns, for any level of angler, to the surrounding waters of the Great Barrier Reef 

This is internationally renowned as some of the most prolific fishing grounds in the world, so get set for some of the best fishing you will experience anywhere. 

With years of commercial and offshore deep sea charter fishing experience behind the crew, the guys at Cairns Reef Fishing know where the fish are, and will give you your best chance of landing your very own prize catch.  A variety of fishing methods and equipment are used including trolling, live bait fishing, bottom fishing and drift fishing.  On the way out to the reef we will troll some lures. This can result in hook ups of large Dolphin fish, Mackeral, Wahoo, Sailfish, Cobia, Marlin and Tuna. 

Out at the reef we will be targeting Coral Trout, Sea Perch, Red Emperor, Large and Small Mouth Nannygai, Cod, Trevally, Sweet Lip and many other reef species. Be warned that we expect to land fish up to 10kg so hang on!

A great day fishing, a delicious lunch and you can even bring a cold beer for on the way home. 

We provide quality, well maintained fishing equipment, bottled drinking water and a delicious, full, fresh buffet lunch and snacks. We clean and ice your fish and then bag them up ready for you to take home.  If you are staying in a hotel, take your catch to a local recommended restaurant and they will cook it to your liking or if you're flying out of Cairns speak to your friendly skipper and he can organise to have your catch packed up for the trip home! 

No matter the time of year, ideal weather, location and productive fishing grounds make the offshore reefs of Cairns the best destination for your next charter fishing trip.
