Airlie Beach Fishing Charters sets the standard when it comes to fishing in the Whitsundays.

Based out of beautiful Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, they have access to some of the best fishing spots to be had on the east coast of Australia.

They offer several types of fishing charters, ranging from half day to full day trips. Jake and Wayne will have you onto the fish in no time.

The half day trips depart 8 am and then again at 5 pm. These trips are very popular and you will be surprised how many fish can be caught in that time.

Full day fishing trips depart at 8 am and return at 5 pm, this trip includes lunch, we cover a lot of ground moving to our best spots throughout the Islands you will have sore arms after this

They can also introduce you to the most extreme surface lure fishing, mainly targeting the mighty GT. With this charter they only run small numbers heading to the outer reef for some explosive action using a variety of surface lures (poppers and stick baits), being cast from the Dance Floor, a unique elevated platform letting you see and cast further than ever before. This is setting the standard for sport fishing in the Whitsundays.

The fishing tackle provided on Airlie Beach Fishing Charters is top notch. They use and are sponsored by Zeikel Australia and Shimano Australia.

Having a 5 star rating from their customers is no accident as they strive to provide the best fishing experience they can.

My favorite species is Coral Trout, but we have so many species here—1500 different types to be exact—its hard to single out one. I love interaction with passengers and enjoy the pleasure people get when they get the big one!

Would thoroughly recommend a trip on stryker, good crew who know their business. Would have definitely been out on more trips with Jake and his crew had he not had such an unfortunate turn of luck. I will be back in the witsunday islands soon enough and definitely back on a charter with stryker!
