The Ultimate Whitsundays Game Fishing Adventure

Whitsunday sports fishing trips are based in the heart of the many 74 Whitsundays Islands and the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. Indeed the majestic large reef system is perfectly poised off the north Queensland coastline, a 2-hour passage away from Hamilton Island. An essential Australian travel experience, especially for any keen game fisherman.

Whitsunday Sport/Reef Fishing Experience

Fishing the Whitsundays with Topnotch Game Fishing will put you frontline in the hunt for trophy game fish and reef fish. Pelagic fish species targeted include giant trevally, Spanish mackerel, longtail/yellowfin tuna, sailfish, black marlin. Bottom reef fish that can be encountered are coral trout, red emperor, nannygai, cobia, a variety of cods, sweetlips and snapper. The many Whitsundays Islands set the scene for one of the world’s most incredible world-class sports/reef fishing destinations. ** Note we highly recommend booking private charters for the ultimate sports/reef fishing experience.
