I am a keen fisho and have dreamed of heading north to tackle GT's, Spanish Mackerels and Queenfish and anything else big. This was to be a dream fishing trip for my son and myself. From the start I mentioned to Kerry the fish we were targeting and boy did he deliver. We fished three days in total and from... More

We had booked two days, they both blew away! Walking along the beach, we really did not wish we'd been out there! However the day after there could be a chance of decent weather and since Kerry was available this was set up. Weather around Cairns was still rough though, the solution was to drive us down to a harbor... More

Contacted Sherryl and Kerry at short notice and they were more than accommodating to fit us in for a days fishing. There was myself, son and daughter.i found Kerry to be very professional and was always doing his utmost to put us onto fish. Being from the far south where we fish very differently, so it was very interesting to... More

Had a fantastic time on the water with Kerry last week. From the moment you meet the guy you know your in for a great day! Having been on a few sport fishing charters before this was by far the best all round experience iv had. He got us popping around some structure straight up with plenty of Queenie and... More

My son and I had a super day with Kelly. First of all his gear is in great shape and perfect working order. Kelly is a professional and knows where to go, is eco minded and most importably is a good bloke. Kelly also only takes out small groups so the experience is very personalised. We caught plenty of fish,... More

Went out with Kerry today wanting to hit some Spanish mackerel and GTs. After a long trip out to a secret mark we were on shortly after sun-up - action was fast and furious. Had a large Spaniard in the locker early which will feed the family for the next week. Then off to another mark and we were hitting... More

I have been on two trips with Kerry, and are deeply disappointed, Equipment is very very old, does not listen to the customers wishes, insults you if you bring your own tackle Jigging and popping equipment (which I find very strange). Does not want to travel any distance just to the closet possible mark as to save on fuel cost... More

This review is a vindictive attempt to bad name our business and credibility and is misleading ! so it's truly not worth a response but i would like to say to any potential angler coming to cairns looking for a reef or river charter to call us and have a chat personally with Kerry or myself.

My partner and I spent two days fishing with Kerry, targetting primarilly GT's. We had a fantastic couple of days with resonable fishing (GT's up to 28 kgs and even bigger ones lost), and some exceptional vacation experiences with big sharks, turtles, and dolphins. I would recommend anybody - experienced or not - to go out on a fishing trip... More
