For the best experience reef fishing is a must. For a more enjoyable experience also I would recommend that the anglers organise cooking facilities so that they can fully enjoy the there catch, something unfortunately I could not do

Fishing Booker should not charge so much off the charters, I will enquire with the charter directly next time for cash payments

I've done several charters out of port Douglas and never caught a single keeper do your research find a boat with a good reputation.

Well, there was a American father with 2 teenage daughters that clearly hd no idea. I think that should have been identifed by the support crew they should have given extra attention.

A tough time of year to catch barramundi, but with so many other amazing fish to catch I wouldn't get caught up on solely targeting barra this time of year.

Yes. While we were experienced, the weather was great, the variety of fish amazing, and the actual work of fishing straight-forward.

Don’t be cheap and pay for a full day if time permitted, you will not be disappointed.

The wind can definitely be a factor but with the right crew, you will catch fish.

Choose Matt Koch, he knows what he is doing. Do not be to disappointed if it gets windy as it usually is all year round.

Be aware it’s hot, don’t just imagine you can chuck in and catch as there are a lot of variables the skipper can’t control.

Check the weather for wind, otherwise you will be fishing in the rivers and no guarantee to catch fish.

That the cheaper charters on offer are not always the best. You get what you pay for.
