About the Charter Operator

Mark (Parko) Parkinson
Cairns, Queensland, Australia
Member since December 2014
I have been passionate about angling since I was able to hold a fishing rod and target everything from Bass to Billfish. I moved to the Northern Territory late teens and started my guiding career for another operator learning what we call the old school way of running a charter company and learning people skills and learning better fishing techniques. I started up my own charter company and made a good name and reputation in the Top End. After 25 years of guiding guests to monster Barramundi, Sailfish and Black Marlin my partner and I decided to sell up in the NT and move to Cairns to pursue a new venture with our game boat Black Label, and our transition has been a good one, targeting light tackle Marlin and then putting clients onto the Grander Black Marlin of the Great Barrier reef. I have a great crew on board and am still learning as we do in the art of Game fishing.
