Member since May 2016

Cairns, Australia

Background
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.
Techniques
Preferred method is surface fishing and live bait fishing for giant Barramundi.

Definitely a trip I’d take again if I’m ever in Cairns.  As someone who knows fishing, I can say that Justin is a solid captain and will put you in a position to catch fish.  He taught me a few tricks that I plan to use while fishing in the States.  A++ and 5 star experience.

I had fantastic day fishing with Justin.  From the time he picked me up at the marina it was all business.  Justin quickly netted some fresh live bait and we were soon on to the fish.  We caught a range of species including Fingermark, Giant Trevally and Black Jewfish.  Justin knew I wanted to do some lure fishing and we tied on some soft plastic vibes and caught more fish.  As soon as the bite died off in one spot Justin moved us to another one.  It was clear he had the whole day thought out in terms of where to fish and at what time. All in all it was a great day out.

Justin is a highly capable, knowledgable and experienced guide.  His boat and equipment is all good quality and well maintained.  He is also a good guy.

I highly recommend All Tackle Sportfishing.
