A Game Fisherman’s Paradise For Giant Black Marlin

On the Great Barrier Reef in a stretch of water between Lizard Island and Cairns famously known as the Ribbon Reefs, every year giant black marlin come here to breed from September through to December. More granders (1000lb+) black marlin are caught here more than anywhere else in the world making these reefs a predominate BIG MARLIN factory and setting a scene for one the worlds most incredible big game fisheries.

Trophy Pelagic Fish

Also found here are sailfish around the reefs edges and blue marlin a little further offshore. Aside from the marlin fishing there’s a a great opportunity of luring excellent by catch including fish species such as wahoo, yellow fin tuna, spanish mackeral and mahi mahi.
