You could be fishing all the way from Cairns up to Lizard Island, tracking the movement of the best sportfish. Fishing through ‘til sunset every single day, this is a real sport fisherman’s dream. The best part is, on a multi-day excursion, you will have multiple attempts at catching the fish of a lifetime.
