Based in Cairns Australia and in operation for over 30 years, Australian Black Marlin offers heavy tackle charters to suit your needs. They have a proven record in fishing for huge Black Marlin, with over 450 fish in excess of 900 lbs released and ten over 1000 lbs weighed.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Kiama’, a comfortable 47 ft custom built Pleysier that is powered by twin MAN engines, giving her a cruising speed of 26 knots, and reaching a maximum speed of 31 knots. This is extremely fast for a boat of her size, and it allows you plenty of time to fish. The boat is fully equipped both inside and out, and features two staterooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen, as well as all the essentials and more for big game fishing, including outriggers, tuna tubes, and a fighting chair.

The highly experienced skipper and crew will focus on helping you achieve your sport fishing dreams, providing equipment, experience, and advice in order that you can reel in the biggest fish of your life. Whether you want to fish with heavy tackle, light tackle, or even fly fishing gear, they will provide top of the range equipment so all you have to think about is reeling in your fish.

About the Captain

Brad Craft
Cairns, Queensland, Australia
Member since August 2016
I have been involved in both sportfishing and recreational and commercial fishing since I was 16 and have worked tirelessly to stop illegal longlining in the coral sea. I have caught over 4000 black Marlin in the last 36 years, 450 of which have been in excess of 900 lb. The heaviest fish weighed 1304 lb. I weighed my first grander as a captain in 1990, and I am a past president of the Cairns Professional Gamefishing Assosciation.
