I would definitely recommend going on a charter with Jimmy or an experienced captain to help find the fish and make the day enjoyable.

Weather was definately windy and I understand now this was typical for month of July. So if that's not for your party maybe ask when it would be less windy.

Remember to check the season you're in so you know what fish may be biting. Heed the sage advice of the professional fisherman you've engaged for your charter - they really do know what's best! Relax and enjoy the trip!

Yes our youngest was 11 probably wouldn't go younger than that as was quite choppy in some areas so depends on the weather conditions.

Depending on the day, weather could prohibit you from fishing the reef but that’s to be expected anywhere.

Be prepared for all types of weather and that any catch is a good catch. We went in May and this day was cloudy and the temp had dropped. It was an estuary morning half day trip, I caught a Blue Salmon..other species caught on the trip were Trevally, Mangrove Jack and Grunter. So although the dream was of a Barramundi...just remember to enjoy the thrill, the company and that each day brings a different catch!

Don’t visit Airlie without going fishing - experience or not. It’s an all round unforgettable experience.

Worth the drive. Less overfished relative to Carins and shorter boat ride to the fish (this makes it good for kids).

If you are planning to take cached fish back, ensure you make arrangements to transport it in the car. You may not get good bags and blood may drip from the given bags to take the the catch home at the end of the trip.
