WELCOME TO YOUR NEXT
Topwater Sportfishing prides themselves in offering the very best Great Barrier Reef experience. With years of experience on the reef and on different operations to back us, we differ ourselves from other charters by being one of only a few that offer such a diverse array of fishing for all levels of anglers.
Have you ever woken up behind a reef very few people have visited onboard a luxury fishing vessel? Live-a-board fishing charters are the best way to experience what North QLD really has to offer. Wether it's an overnight trip or a whole week on the reef, it's something everyone has to experience at least once in their lifetime
*Disclaimer - This fish was properly looked after & handled by professional crew. After a quick couple photos it was released healthy.
HOME OF THE
1000LB BLACK MARLIN
Cairns has hands down, the best black marlin grounds in the world. In 1966 the first 1000lb black marlin was caught off the coast of cairns, putting cairns on the map. To this day cairns catches more 1000lb black marlin in 100 days, than the rest of the world catches in one year.
Every year from September
through to December, these giants migrate up to the reefs from lizard island to cairns before continuing on.
Catching a 1000 pound marlin is a bucket list fish for many anglers.
Cairns uses very unique techniques chasing these giants and the experience is one many fishermen's dreams
80% is done by trolling dead baits, such as rigged swimming and skipping baits and the rest with marlin lures attached to 130 pound tackle.
The big girls consistently feed in the afternoons, so mornings are spent catching fresh bait such as scad mackerel, tuna, shark mackerel and rainbow runners, which is great fishing in itself!
After spending the day catching giant marlin, enjoy a cheese platter while you watch the sunset over the Great Barrier Reef.
