Light Tackle Fishing

Black marlin are the rarest of the marlin species and also one the fastest fish in the ocean.

Luckily the coastal reefs off of North Queensland are home to these treasured beauties. Juvenile Black Marlin (ideal for Light Tackle Fishing) are present off North Queensland predominantly in the colder months from July through until September and it’s the ideal time to go fishing for these little beauties.

Light Tackle Fishing basically means you are matching the size/style of the tackle you are using to the fish you are attempting to catch.

Predominantly we use 10 -15kg line on specially designed rods and reels. Light tackle Fishing is a fantastic starting point to try gamefishing due to the fact that the juvenile marlin weigh anything up to 20kg and you can therefor stand up and wind the fish in yourself without the need for more technical equipment and a fighting chair.

Light tackle Fishing is a popular choice from families and juniors to the keen fisherman that want to experience what ‘sports fishing’ is all about!
