Kerry Bailey made or trip comfortable and fun. Fish on at each drop and very attentive to keeping rods baited. Highly recommended for a personal fishing experience

To start with I would of rated the trip 5 but I didn't catch the big one. That wasn't for Kerry's lack of trying its just happens that way on some days. Kerry put us on to a few great spots and the Spanish Mac were there but just got busted. I spent 20 mins or so flexing my muscles... More

Even though I found this business via a well respected Jigging and Popping tackle dealer, I was still a bit apprehensive about our trip. Would the guide know his stuff, would we just be bait fishing in a muddy river, would he really go all the way out to the reef? Well I needn't have worried. Despite having a hectic... More

Kerry and cheryl host a great day on the water. Weather was great, and it offers a very personable experiance. Only taking 3 people max on the boat makes it a great experiance. Heaps of giant fish to catch and beautiful scenery. Would highly recommend booking a day on blackout sports fishing charters. You will not be disappointed.

We took the opportunity to take our business partners whilst they were in town for a few days. We had previously taken them on a larger charter vessel however did not get all that many fish and spent most the day moving from place to place or unwrapping tangles in lines. We went with Blackout Sportsfishing as they have a... More

Kerry and his wife Sherryl were very accommodating. Kerry is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He will put you on the fish and all I can say is "HOLD ON"! We had a blast fishing with blackout sportfishing and will definitely use them again the next time we are in Cairns Australia! P.S. Watch out for the "HOT" mustard!

Probably the best and most enjoyable days fishing I have had. Great skipper, Kerry, friendly co-fishers (only three typically per trip) and incredible boat. This is not a tourist boat with a mob onboard that barely gets near a reef - this is the real thing. I ca't wait to go again

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.
