“Thanks Darryl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Thanks to Darryl for being a great skipper on our half day fishing charter. With the fish not really on the bite that day, we did end up catching 3 fish but only one as a keeper for dinner that night. It was my young son's first fishing trip and he, and I, enjoyed the time. Darryl is great with kids. Happy to recommend.

Thank you very much for your review.
All kids young and old are an important part of our business. We need to teach our kids about fishing to ensure we have clean and health fish species and waterways for the future.
Thank you very much for coming out with us; see you when next you are in Cairns.

“Reef fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

I've been on a few charters and this one was by far the best, the skipper had alot of knowledge and he really knew what he was talking about. The fish were plentiful and as soon as they stopped biting he would find another spot which was prime. Highly recommend and will definitely go again if in the area.

Thank you very much for your review.
It is important part of a fishing charter to move around, hence Darryl is a hunter-he goes hunting for the fish. Communication with all our guest is an important part of charter fishing-Darryl is happy to teach you our way of fishing so you may hook and land the fish.
Thank you very much for coming out with us, we hope to see you soon.

“The best fishing charter !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We went out today with Wombat / Tim. His knowledge about fishing and all things fishing is second to none! He kept us entertained all day with his stories and general mucking around! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to actually experience fishing with someone who knows what they are doing!

“Fishing with Capt. Tim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

We came here from Miami, Florida where we are avid anglers looking for a good Australian guided charter. And we received one of the best charters we've ever been on. Tim picked us up from our apartment and took us back in the estuary for a day of backcountry fishing. My husband and I had our 4 & 5 yr old sons on the boat, and Tim was so awesome with guiding us and interacting with the boys. Most captains get impatient with little ones, but he was great with them, and gave us a great day on the water. I highly recommend this charter due to their professionalism, knowledge of the back country and easy going personality. We fought great fish, and had a good time. Thanks

Thank you Erik and Heather for choosing to come out with us for a full day of river fishing on The Mulgrave River/Russell River and Mutchero Inlet from Cairns. Timmy aka Wombat has asked me to let you know it was a pleasure to take you out on a charter to show you `our backyard`. When he gets to Florida he is going to look you up so you may show him `your backyard`.
Thank you taking a charter with us.

“Awesome day with a great skipper and guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

After hearing about the knowledge and passion this company holds it wasn't a hard decision to get my self and friends out on this boat for the day. Our skipper wombat was a great teacher and knew the inlets and rivers like the back of his hands which made us feel like we were in the right hands. I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to barra fishing but timmy aka wombat filled me in on the do's and donts and it was happy fishing from then on in. I highly recommend this day to anyone, just make sure you pack a nice lunch to have out there.

Thank you for your review.
Catching Barramundi is not always easy; at times they just don`t eat. However there are some simple rules to follow as well as talking to us first about your target species and when you wish to take a charter helps. Timmy aka Wombat spends the time in the mornings to get the right bait to help in your target species.
Thank you for coming out with us.
