“Great Day on the Water”

5 of 5 stars
We had a great morning today fishing with Jim in the tidal waters near the Marina today. Dispute less than perfect conditions with the weather, my husband caught several fish in a variety of sizes. Jim was knowledgable regarding the fish, the waters, and the boat. Fun day at a very reasonable price.“A great day out”

“Great day out!!”

5 of 5 stars
We had a private charter, which include 3 kids under 8. Jim could not have been more accomodating with us & the kids. Jim knew where the the fish would be and when. If they are on, he will find them!!! We must have caught 10 different types. Can’t wait to be back on his boat.

“Awesome session in beautiful Cairns”

5 of 5 stars
Booked a private half day charter with Jim and couldn’t have been better! Jim had a great knowledge of the local area, happy to spin a yarn about the spot we were fishing or the locals involved. We caught some great sized fish with some great gear (Shimano rods, Penn reels, custom made boat). He was very attentive, often spotting a bite on the rod before we did or quickly rebaiting for us so we could get a line back in the water. Unlike other charters we have been on, Jim was happy to handle fish, bait or simply show you how. We were lucky enough to share a few beers on board (amongst ourselves; not Jim!) and couldn’t have asked for a better host. Unlike a previous reviewer, just leave everything to the expert (Jim) and I sure he can put you on the fish and have a great day! Thanks Jim. We will be back again next time in FNQ.

“Excellent fishing trip”

Had an excellent half day trip, me and my girlfriend caught lots of fish including a 49 cm fingermark which we kept for dinner, our host was a good laugh, very professional and made our day very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this trip

“Highly skilled, good fishing and all with typical Australian charm”

5 of 5 stars
A very nice day on the water, we booked a half-day trip but enjoyed it so much we extended to full day, despite the rain (very heavy all day long).
Jim is a very skilled guide, and a nice man too, even if his Australian charm needed an hour to get used to.

Barramundi, queenfish, eel and catfish was the catches of the day
All my best to Jim, and thanks!

Went on half day trip couldn’t ask for better weather, watched Jim throw the net for fresh prawns and mullet the best bait.Jim’s local knowledge of where to fish was great.Boat is well set up and everything was taken care of,baiting up and advice on technique, nothing was too much .Fish caught where a bonus.Will definitely return Thanks Jim.

“75cm barramundi”

Came up to cairns in hope of catching a barra and Jim put me on the spot. Hooked up on a healthy 75cm using live prawns. Local knowledge and service was great. Would highly recommend.
