Go where the fishing is best – The Great Barrier Reef

Liveaboard fishing charters maximise your fishing time on the water. Take advantage of the early morning and late evening bite plus fish all day. Topnotch highly recommend a 3 to 5 days duration to fully experience all of what the reef has to offer.

The Great Barrier Reef is a World Heritage-listed wonder and an essential Australian travel experience, especially for any keen angler. The Whitsundays is based right in the heart of the system, perfectly poised just off the central Queensland coastline a 2-hour passage away. The GBR sets the scene for one of the world’s most incredible game fishing destinations. All in all liveaboard fishing charters are perfect for targeting trophy pelagic species such as black marlin, sailfish, Spanish mackerel, tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo & giant trevally.

After departing anchorage in the mornings on fishing charters, we like to take advantage of some light tackle reef fishing straight up. Usually, some popping for Giant Trevally the big brutes of the ocean or trolling for black marlin for the most part. By day between reefs, you may encounter such species as mackerel, tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi, sailfish and the elusive black marlin.

All in all the fishing doesn’t stop even when the sun goes down. As we anchor at night behind the reef and sometimes in sheltered lagoons where reef fish are abundant. Enjoy the underwater light show as Brilliant Company has built-in Aqualuma LED lights to attract baitfish than watch as the bigger predators arrive later on. Given these points
