BLACK MARLIN FISHING

Castille Charters has arrived! With 2 happy charters already under our belt, let the games begin. After a change over in Cairns from our last charter out of Cooktown, the team are back out today on a 5 day Coral Sea charter. Good luck to our punters on board! “The thrill of Marlin Fishing is like getting out of a normal car and jumping in to a Ferrari F1. It is the ultimate adrenalin buzz!”

Marlin Fishing

Cairns/Cooktown/Lizard Island

September to December
Heavy Tackle

September to December every year the Female Big Black Marlin come into the Reefs of North Queensland to spawn. The area is huge over 200 Nm long. Most of the breeders are between 700 and 1300lbs. There are also many male marlin 200 lbs up with the females which give our angler plenty of chances to catch all sizes of marlin.

It is a fact that 70% of all 1000+lbs Marlin in the world caught or released each year are caught of The Great Barrier Reef. If you want to catch a grander marlin, fishing of Cairns is by far the best chance you can give yourself.

The action never stops from dawn to dusk. We usually start with a snorkel on the GBR, then some bait fishing, jigging and popper throwing for many different species. They include Scad, Mackerel, Yellow fin and dog tooth tuna, queen fish, coral trout, Giant trevally and of course Giant Black Marlin. We usually wind up and head to our anchorage behind the reef about 6 PM each night.
