Topnotch Game Fishing Cairns

1 Spence Street
Cairns City QL, Australia

Try your hand at fishing for the world’s biggest game fish, the Black Marlin, from the world famous port town of Cairns, Australia. Fishing here is an experience that every serious game fisherman must have at least once in their life, and Topnotch Game Fishing Charters provide all the gear and the crew to make sure it is one that will never be forgotten.

Fishing aboard a fully surveyed 51 ft Riviera enclosed flybridge boat, Topnotch Game Fishing Charters are based out of Cairns during the summer, where they target giant Black Marlin with heavy tackle. Offering both single day and multiday trips, they cover all the best Marlin hotspots, from Cairns to Cooktown and including the Marlin paradise of Lizard Island.

Their extremely powerful boat is fitted with two MTU 8V-2000 series engines, each providing 1000 HP. In fact, the boat was made as a joint venture between Riviera and MTU in 2006 and was used as their corporate gamefishing show boat before being used for charters with Topless Gamefishing. Purpose built for sports fishing, this boat is an excellent platform to make any sport fisherman’s Black Marlin fishing dreams come true.

About the Charter Operator

My passion for fishing commenced in my early 20's with the purchase of a 28ft Sport Fisher. This was the vessel that I had my first encounter with black marlin & it wasn't long after that the decision was made that this boat wasn't quite the size we required for chasing marlin. So in 2008 I flew over to Florida to upgrade to a 36ft Luhrs & imported it into Australia. This boat "STILL PRODUCEN" delivered us plenty of marlin in the waters around the Kepple's, but we were still limited in range & to sea conditions. This vessel was sold to make way for the Eureka 42 "TOPLESS". A one of a kind Aussie built game boat that we used in the Whitsunday's & 2014/15 heavy tackle seasons in Cairns. Early 2016 saw yet another vessel upgrade to a Riviera 51 (17.75m) Launched in 2006 Sydney boat show in the joint venture between Riviera & MTU. "TOPLESS" turns heads everywhere she goes & I'm pleased to say there will be no more bigger boats as the riv meets all the requirements & luxuries needed.
