My partner & I spent 2 days on the Endeavour River fishing with Mark Privett from Gone Fishing. Mark's knowledge of fishing and the River were invaluable. We spent 1 1/2 days fishing, then the last afternoon he took us up the Nth Arm of the River to spot for Crocodiles. We had a very enjoyable time and learnt a... More

This was my first experience on a fishing trip such as this. My husband is an avid fisherman who booked this 5 day trip for our anniversary in Oct 2013. I was very apprehensive to say the least and was extremely worried about the long day on a boat for 5 days straight but I had the most fabulous time.... More

My husband and I fished with Mark on the Endeavor River in October, 2013. This was our first trip in that area and our first fish on the Endeavor! It was a perfect day! Mark gave us the best fishing trip we could imagine. We saw several crocs and one "grand daddy" of the river! We caught lots of fish.... More

This was my fourth time out with Mark over recent years and the first ever fishing trip for my wife. I had my usual expected experience just like fishing with a good mate. Daina loved every bit of our 2 days, from all the fish she caught to (big)croc spotting. Most of all she loved that she didn't have to... More

My fiance and I went out with Mark on August 9th and had a wonderful day. We chartered the boat for a full day with just the two of us. Dave had pretty specific hopes for the day, and Mark made it happen. The weather was perfect and the reef was so beautiful. Dave landed 5 nice sized GT's and... More

My husband and I needed someone to teach us lots about fishing. We came to the right person, Mark was fabulous. Caught a Fingermark as soon as we dropped anchor. We learnt more in our four hours than we have ever learnt in our lifetime. Mark makes it all look so easy and a great teacher. Heaps of local knowledge.... More

I've just made it back to Melbourne after spending four days fishing with Mark Privett from Gone Fishing Cooktown during 1-4 October. This was my third yearly visit and this time I had five mates with me. Six into one boat doesn't go, but Mark kindly made arrangements so that we could get out in two boats and we swapped... More
