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.

Return of good weather

The return of good weather and fishing conditions has helped our traditional winter struggle. More often than not the good fishing coincides with the good weather at this time of the year. We started our day the usual way… Read Full Report →

Justin was very accommodating, we were able to reschedule our fishing trip at the last minute. 
Lots of fun for the whole family and we all learnt new skills.

Well the weather was not on our side with showers & 25-35 winds however Justin (our skipper) worked hard to put on plenty of fish. Justin knows his game & with many years experience he was able to provide a great morning on the water.
The boat was clean & well fitted out & the fishing gear was well above the standard of other charters that i have been on.
I would thoroughly recommend Justin & “All Tackle Sportsfishing” & hope to return to Cairns & hook up with this operator again.’

Our family booked Justin charter for a fishing day. The boat was new & well equipped. Captain was professional & friendly. The weather was bad so we didn’t catch as many fishes as we have expected, yet we still get a few, and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this charter.

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.
