We were a party of 9 Adults and booked a half day charter with Gone fishing Cairns for the 17th March. From the moment we boarded the charter Daniel made us feel relaxed and excited for what we may catch. First we watched Daniel catch live bait and his netting skills ensured ample live bait for the afternoon. We stopped... More

We had a great day with Jim for a half day charter. He was always helpful and patient with my fishing incompetence and in difficult conditions he came through and we left with a couple of good sized blue salmon which were amazing on the BBQ. The boat is a good size, max 8 people I think, which is good... More

My husband and I booked this half day charter with Daniel directly. He was helpful and informative from the time we made the booking. He advised us of what we needed to bring, water, sunscreen hat etc so there were no surprises on the day. Firstly we met Daniel and he was very friendly and eager to get out there... More

Myself and my husband had a great morning fishing with Jim. It was great seeing how the live bait was caught. I caught a fish which Jim cleaned and we had it for dinner that same night. Delicious. We enjoyed our fishing trip.

We went fishing with jim. He was great, helped me out as I'm very inexperienced. We all caught a fish, unfortunately no keepers, but that's fishing. Got to see a beautiful white bellied sea eagle. Jim is knowledgable about the area, not only fishing, but can answer questions about the region.

I was out with Gone Fishing Cairns on Sunday 25/9/16 - having gone with 6 fishing charters during my time in Cairns- I would rate this particular charter amongst the best. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide who is super organized. He genuinely wants to get you onto fish and takes the time and effort to source quality live bait, moves... More
