All Tackle Sportfishing

The Marlin Marina Cairns
Cairns QL, Australia

All Tackle Sportfishing are based out of Cairns, in Tropical North Queensland, Australia. They offer half and full day guided fishing trips to Trinity Inlet (within walking distance from the CBD), and full day trips to some of the local rivers just south of Cairns.

Their newly restored 20’ Cairns Custom Craft boat is powered by a 90HP Honda outboard motor. It features a spacious deck with a large cover for shade, and can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers. It also comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, live bait tank, and ice box for your drinks and snacks.

All Tackle Sportfishing offer both shared and private fishing charters, which are suitable for all levels of experience. Their half day trips are popular for those with limited time, while the full day river trips are often preferred by those who are a little more serious about their fishing. Private charters are limited to a maximum of 4 people for the full day river trips. Target species include Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Threadfin Salmon, Grunter, Trevally, Bream, Queenfish, Fingermark and more. The local wildlife is another added bonus, and the Saltwater Crocodile is not an unusual encounter in any of the local waterways!

The crew will supply you with top-quality tackle and bait, as well as a lifetime of local knowledge and guiding experience, while lunch will also be provided on full day river trips. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, hat and camera, and you are more than welcome to bring a couple of beers along, however the crew emphasize that responsibility is preferred. Pickups are available by prior arrangement.

About the Captain

I started guiding full time in 1990 due to my obsession with fishing. This hasn't subsided in the slightest. If anything, it could best be described as a condition. I can honestly say I have spent more hours and years guiding and fishing our local Estuary and rivers than most people. Nothing compares to local knowledge.

Well the weather was not on our side with showers & 25-35 winds however Justin (our skipper) worked hard to put on plenty of fish. Justin knows his game & with many years experience he was able to provide a great morning on the water.
The boat was clean & well fitted out & the fishing gear was well above the standard of other charters that i have been on.
I would thoroughly recommend Justin & “All Tackle Sportsfishing” & hope to return to Cairns & hook up with this operator again.’

Our family booked Justin charter for a fishing day. The boat was new & well equipped. Captain was professional & friendly. The weather was bad so we didn’t catch as many fishes as we have expected, yet we still get a few, and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this charter.
