Reef fishing on the great barrier reef is a great alternative for groups or family that want to experience a more relaxed style of fishing and catch a variety of fish and/or a feed for dinner. Prize target species are red emperor, large mouth nannygai, coral trout and Spanish mackerel, but as always the great barrier reef provides anglers many species to be caught?
This type of fishing is generally done at anchor which makes for a more comfortable day with not having the noise of the engines running, you can relax and listen to the sounds of the ocean. We can break up the day for you to relax and have a drink and troll between spots or even stop for a lunch swim and snorkel, if you desire.
We do promote catch and release fishing, but we are more than happy for you to keep a feed of fish for yourselves. Fish are kept iced, gutted and gilled and upon our return to the marina we are happy to fillet your fish for your convenience.
Our boat can accomodate up to 8 people on a day trip, however the recommended number of people fishing at any one time is 4-6 to save tangles. We are more than happy to customise your day to how you would like. We can try a bit of popper fishing for GT's or troll for pelagics in between reef spots or stop at a beautiful reef for lunch and a snorkel, there are many possible
