Fraser Island runs hot & also off Coffs

The fishing off Fraser has gone from strength to strength with both the Hervey Bay Game Fishing Tournament fleet and fleet outside the comp recording some awesome numbers. While the official tournament results are not available yet, I did hear some of the skeds over the radio and line class willing, Capt. Brett Alty’s Mistress […]

More Cairns catchups

Some more catch up reports coming in from the Cairns fleet. Capt. Brett Goetze’s Amokura was into port overnight on changeover with Brett reporting they just finished up with Stephan Kreupl from Germany again trying to catch his grander black (to complete his grander marlin slam). Brett says although they never got the one he […]

Cairns to Fraser Island

Cairns continues to be hot (if you’re the lucky boat) and cold (if you’re not) although once again some nice fish being caught. 2017 certainly has been a year of big fish! Capt. Daniel Klein on Onsite tells me they caught a couple of small ones on this last trip as well as one about […]

Catching (them) up in Cairns

As I reported yesterday on the Facebook page I’ve been having trouble getting online overnight where we are anchoring. But I have a few catch up reports to share! This report is from Monday and Capt. Corey Hard’s Askari. Corey reports battling the rain and some pretty sloppy conditions over the last week they still […]

Slower but big Cairns

Reports have been a little fewer over the past several days as the fishing has been a little slower. But as always, there are big fish around to keep everyone keen! On Friday Capt. Craig “Sparra” Denham’s Hot Shot released a fish that he put at 800lbs. While yesterday, it was Capt. Tim Dean on […]

Slowing down period but big fish around

Capt. Scotty Thorrington at the wheel of Jon Priddles (PHGFC’s) Doghouse seems to be the boat on the fish at the moment.  After their cracker day Monday, they followed up yesterday with a big fish that Scotty put at over a grand (photos above and below). And another one on the fish again is Capt. […]

Corey wanted to thank his fellow Captains and crew for […]

Moving south, more great drone action

A lot of the Cairns boats are moving south with the bite now bidding farewell to the Ribbons for at least the time being. Not a whole lot of action to report though. On the Bank Capt. Craig “Sparra” Denham’s Hot Shot went 1 from 2 with one about 350lbs (and more great drone footage) […]
