Deep Sea Fishing in Australia

Deep sea fishing in Australia is the rod-bending action arena! Thousands of miles of rich coastline means there’s numerous fish species to catch on an adventure deep sea fishing in Australia. With so many big game fish around, it’s no wonder this country hosts the largest game fishing tournament in the southern hemisphere. Whether you visit the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Darwin, or Perth, you’ll experience the trip of a lifetime. 
 

What to Catch

If you’re aiming for Black Marlin, you’re in the right place! Head out from Cairns, QL, also known as “the Marlin capital of the world,” where they come to spawn each year. The main season lasts from September till late December. What makes these trips epic is a high chance of landing “Grander” Marlin, that weighs over 1000 pounds! If you lack fishing experience, rely on your fishing guide and learn from the best to hook this beast.
 
There are three types of Marlin you can target in Australia, the other two being White and Striped. Other Billfish species, which are mainly tagged and released after catching, are Sailfish and the increasingly popular Broadbill Swordfish.
 
Impressive as it is, the list doesn’t end there. You can also catch Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Narrow-barred Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi (Dorado), Barracuda, Wahoo, and Cobia. These fish can be kept and they will make a delicious lunch afterward.
 

Which Trip to Book

Catching big game species requires you to go further offshore, which means that a full day trip is the right choice. These usually last between eight and nine hours but can go way longer – some even up to nine days! Multi-day trips are common with Aussie guides and they are well prepared for them. The boats are equipped for these extended adventures, with full bathrooms and sleeping rooms. You should always check with the captain about what’s included in the price on multi-day trips and what you need to bring with you.
 
You don’t have to delay your fishing trips because your friends and family are busy, either. Just take a shared trip! “Shared” trips often mirror private trips, so you’re not missing out on anything.
 
Deep sea fishing in Australia has earned a reputation for itself, and people all over the world are coming here just for a few hours of fishing. Regardless of your skill level, you’ll always find something to catch here. Find the right guide and start your adventure!

Fishing is fishing, sometimes you catch fish sometimes you don't. Don't get upset if you expect something and it doesn't work out.
