Giant Trevally & Reef Popper Fishing

With the most extensive and diverse reefs along the entirety of the Great Barrier Reef this style of fishing is very much in demand. It is visual and very exciting. We exclusively manage only the best in the region.

It is a very specialised form of fishing requiring expertise and the highest standard of fishing tackle. Target species include the mighty giant trevally as well as renowned surface fish across the top of the reef systems such as the coral trout, red bass, mackerel and emperor species.

This style of fishing can also include using stick baits and various soft plastics designed for the rigours of tangling with these hard fighting fish. The average size of these fish range from 10kg – 35kg for Giant Trevally, 5kg – 10kg for Coral Trout, 5kg – 10kg for Red Bass, 5kg – 20kg for Mackerel and 5kg – 10kg for the Emperor variety.

Daily trips will see you travel to destinations such as Batt Reef, Tongue Reef, Opal Reef, Rudder Reef and Undine Reef. Extended trips can take you through the entirety of the Ribbon Reefs, Jewell Reef and beyond.
