Captain
Justin Gibbins

Member since May 2016 Cairns, Australia
Background
Skipper Justin started guiding full-time in 1990 due to his obsession with fishing. This hasn't subsided in the slightest. If anything, he could best describe it as a condition. The skipper can honestly say he has spent more hours and years guiding and fishing the local estuary and rivers than most people have. Nothing compares to local knowledge.
Techniques
Skipper Justin's preferred method is surface fishing and live bait fishing for giant Barramundi.
