Live Aboard Fishing Charters
Extended Live Aboard And Overnight Fishing Charters
Go where the fishing is best – The Great Barrier Reef
Live aboard fishing charters maximise your fishing time on the water. Take advantage of the early morning and late evening bite plus fish all day. We highly recommend a 3 to 5 days duration to fully experience all of what the reef has to offer.
We offer all styles of fishing:
- light and heavy tackle
- Jigging and popping
- Soft plastics
- Bottom bait fishing
After leaving anchorage in the mornings on live aboard fishing charters, take advantage of some light tackle reef fishing like popping for Giant Trevally the brutes of the ocean and jigging for dogtooth tuna. By day trolling between reefs you may encounter such species as mackerel, tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, sailfish and the elusive black marlin.
The fishing doesn’t stop even when the sun goes down as we anchor at night behind the reef in sheltered lagoons where reef fish are abundant. Enjoy the underwater blue light show as Fascination’s built in aft LED lights attract bait fish then the bigger predators later on.
Live aboard Fishing Charters – Great For Night Time Fishing Too!
All fishing equipment is supplied but that doesn’t stop you from bringing that special rod or lure along for your fishing adventure. We use only the best equipment like Tiagra, Stella, Dog Fight, and Cabo reels. NO hand lines.
