Fishing out of Cairns

Can anyone recommend a good chater company that doesn't cost a fortune?

Although hubby has only fished out of Cairns a few times(can't remember who with,sorry),he has in the past been given great advice from a tackle shop near Cairns called Bransfords, they do have a website


If you don't receive any advice from fellow anglers,send Bransfords a quick email and I'm certain you'll get honest advice.

Have a look at this site http://www.fishingcairns.com.au/ as you need to determine the type of fishing you are looking at (creek? reef? bluewater?). There are a host of charter boats operating from Cairns. This site will also list the main ones. When it comes to boat charters, price is a very good indication of the experience as this is an industry where there are no shortcuts. If you are used to catching lots of big fish, go for a small boat where you'll get the best gear and treatment - for a price. If catching anything is the go, bigger boats with lots of others will be OK and probably cheaper.
