The waters surrounding the Great Barrier Reef provide some of the finest sportfishing in the World. Your Captain Alex has many years of Cairns sportfishing experience and can guide you upon an expansive variety of pelagic monsters.
Our winter months (May to September) offer great Cairns fishing for juvenile black marlin, sailfish and spanish (king) mackerel.
The warmer months (October to March) provide good light tackle sportfishing for wahoo, dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi and giant trevally.
We are equipped with top quality fishing tackle including Penn Reels and rods, Saltiga GT and jigging outfits, in all line classes.
Cairns Sportfishing with Big Game offer full day private charters for groups up to 8 anglers. Overnight and extended charters are also available for groups up to 4 anglers. Liveaboard trips are truly remarkable, were evenings are spent behind the calm lee of the reef, fishing for bottom fish (red emperor, spangled emperor, sweetlip, mangrove jack, jobfish and sharks).
We run a highly reputable and fully equipped Cairns fishing vessel “Shikari”. She is fitted with the latest fishing electronics, teasers, downriggers, and all safety gear. Departure from Cairns Marlin Marina at 8am and return back to Cairns after a great day at 530pm.
Tackle & bait, morning/afternoon tea, lunch and soft drink are all included in your Cairns Sportfishing experience. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for a great day on the water!
