Saltaire Fishing Charters


Light Tackle Fishing

Available all year round, the change of seasons brings different species to target.
The run of juvenile black marlin are from july to october and are an exciting catch on 10kg line. There is a number of mackerel species to catch and can be caught most of the year. Other species are northern bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi & giant trevally.


Reef Fishing Charters

Reef fishing can be experienced all year round with a large variety of species.
Rod and reel or the more traditional hand line can be used with dead bait, live bait or soft plastics when on a Reef Fishing Charter. The main species we target are coral trout, large and small mouth nanyagai, red emperor, spangled emperor, sweetlip, reef jacks & trevally.


GT Popper Charters

Casting Poppers for Giant Trevally is one of the most exciting forms of fishing.
Watching a GT smash a surface bait and head straight for the reef edge or bommie can make you week at the knees. We specialize in targeting these big GT's and use Shimano Stella 18000 Reels with 100lb gerry brown braid on a Yamaga blue reef rod to land these amazing fish.


Heavy Tackle Charters

Fishing for Giant Black Marlin is the ultimate experience of a lifetime.
The 150 miles from cairns to lizard island is the undisputed home of the Giant Black Marlin. More Black Marlin over 1000Lbs (Granders) are caught here every season than anywhere else in the world. September to mid December is the best time to catch one of these monsters.
