Description

Ultimate Sportfishing Charters operate a full range of trips, and offer anglers the choice of reef fishing charters to target species such as Coral Trout, Red Emperor and Cod; or sportfishing charters to cast poppers for GTs & Queenies or for teasing Mackerel and Tuna. Our gamefishing charters target Sailfish and Marlin species. They can also offer a light tackle sportfishing option that targets Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Thread-fin Salmon and Mud Crabbing.

Ultimate Sportfishing Charters have something to suit everyone. For the mad keen anglers, we have our very popular single day or single night fishing charters, through to their 10-Day liveaboard fishing charters.  They also operate diving, snorkelling or spearfishing charters; sightseeing party cruises and customised private charters. For those who want a relaxing charter, Ultimate Sportfishing Charters can offer a day, weekend or mid-week getaway that combines some fishing with snorkelling, a cruise and picnics on the island.

We (myself, two sons, two grandsons) were unable to go fishing on any day of our trip (4 days) due to strong winds. Ross (Grennan, skipper) could not help this anymore than we could.  Despite this he was extremely helpful in finding an alternative charter for us so that we were able to get in one day of inshore fishing. This was most important to us otherwise our whole trip would have been a washout from a fishing point of view.
We got to know Ross quite well, despite not actually going fishing with him. We found him easy to get along with, very helpful, and most importantly, very focussed on the needs of us as customers.
Based on everything except an actual fishing experience, I would unhesitatingly recommend him to anyone considering a fishing experience at Townsville.
