Kerry; straight up baller

Had such a great time out! Kerry was super friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent facilities and a nice little bonus to keep a couple of very good eating fish.

Had an awesome time fishing with Kerry. We had two days with him, both were fantastic even if the weather wasn't favourable for the second day. Caught a huge variety of fish. Kerry was very helpful when we wanted to go from bait fishing to lures and supplied a very nice lunch. A very friendly, knowledgeable bloke who went The... More

Our recent charter with Kerry on Blackout is the third time we have been out with him. Kerry makes every effort to get you the fish you are after. Kerry and Sherry are always pleasant and are very efficient and easy to deal with. I highly recommend Blackout, and we will definitely be booking with them again shortly.

Kerry and sherry run a very professional charter business from trinity beach. From very first contact with Sherryl it was clear they were going to do everything they could to accommodate my goals. Leading up to my visit they kept in touch with weather reports and booking statuses. Kerry worked hard on the day to find the fish even with... More

With not much current out wide and weather not really in our favour Kerry did an excellent job putting us on some fish. I would come back and use Blackout services foe sure as you couldn't ask for anymore. Thanks very much Kerry.

Despite the winds Kerry was able to put us onto a good location that had us surrounded by longtail tuna, mackeral tuna, queenfish and even a coral trout. A knowledgable and instructive guide that provided a great day.

Went out with Kerry on what was quite a windy day, but that didn't seem to be much of a problem, Kerry put us on to quite a few good size fish that put up a good fight. Sherryl had packed us a delicious lunch and after we had finished we went and caught some amazing fish off the reef... More

A full day fishing charter with a very experience and helpful guide { Kerry Baily}. Even when it got bit slow Kerry was always trying something to keep the fish biting. A fresh and healthy lunch was much appreciated, with refreshments was also provided daily. Sun-protection ,cameras and a spare pair of glasses is all that is needed. Thanks Kerry

Awesome day of fishing went out to the reef did a bit of jigging, popping, and threw out the odd bait if it slowed up. The fish were a bit finicky at times but Kerry put me on them every drop.a great mixed back to. A great charter company and we'll organised. Will be back up for sure!!
