Whether you’re an experienced angler or you’d like to learn a new style, we’re happy to share our many years of knowledge and experience with you. One of our main aims is to teach people about sport fishing and we view catch and release a major part of our sport. We’d like to help change the mindset of keeping as many trophies as possible.

Top Water Casting
Soft plastics
Micro Jigging
Light Tackle Sight Fishing
This is by far the most exhilarating forms of fishing around. Whether you’re a season angler or are looking at trying this discipline for the first time, we cater for all groups. Our intuitive casting lessons and our tentative approach to guiding our clients is the reason we convert bites to landed fish for the angler. Throwing large lures around the reef and pressure edges, and watching as huge fish explode on them is what makes this form of fishing so exciting. Target species include GT’s, Spanish mackerel, dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, longtail tuna, trout, red bass and more.
Jigging has been responsible for some of the most incredible trophy fish ever recorded. The physical nature of this style requires anglers to be reasonably fit. The bite while jigging is by far the best part. As you’re moving your jig through the water column, it feels like the rod has been hit by a steam train going in the opposite direction at 100 miles an hour. Not knowing what you’ve hooked, you’re usually in for a surprise at the end of the fight. Great for targeting dogtooth tuna, trout, emperor, Spanish mackerel, wahoo.
This is one of the most productive forms of fishing out on the reef. Throwing plastics and micro jigs around opens the flood gates on your possible species count and there are some big fish to be landed on this gear, including trout, red bass, emperor, giant trevally, Spanish mackerel, and cod.
For those who prefer to take a break from the physically demanding nature of heavy tackle top water and jigging then sit back, relax and enjoy some trolling. Just because we’re sitting around doesn’t mean this style of fishing isn’t productive. There are some serious fish to be caught whist trolling, of which the angry dogtooth and giant marlin are at the top of the list. Other species include Spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, sailfish, and wahoo.
We can cater for the adventurous Saltwater Fly fisherman. The East Cape is home to the most divers Saltwater fly fishing available today. From endless wading available for Permit, Blue Bastards, GT's and an array of mixed reef species to heading offshore and targeting larger pelagic's like Spanish mackerel, dogtooth tuna, Marlin the Great Barrier Reef has all bases covered.
This is one of the most productive forms of fishing out on the reef. Throwing plastics and micro jigs around opens the flood gates on your possible species count and there are some big fish to be landed on this gear, including trout, red bass, emperor, giant trevally, Spanish mackerel, and cod.
Join us on the flats for some light tackle sight fishing, this is a form of fishing that every angler needs to experience on their trip out with us on the reef. Throwing small to medium size stick baits and poppers in this terrain is very productive. Don’t think because you are throwing smaller lures you are only going to catch smaller fish! We have hooked GT’s over 50 kilos on the flats while throwing smaller lures as the excitement of the reef fish seems to wind the bigger predators up into attack mode. The best part about this is you’ll be watching the mayhem unfold in front of you as it is so shallow! So after a long day of throwing big lures around or simply just looking for something different, this is a must!
