My partner and I traveled to Trinity Beach and booked a 3 day charter with Blackout Fishing. From the very beginning we had a great experience with Sheryl regarding booking schedules, photos and videos etc. On the days with Kerry, he took us to spots that guaranteed hook ups, landed a few memorable species and we had the occasional bust...

Was an ok trip,we weren't fussed with what we caught,but when asked if we had a choice what fish to catch and responded with a G.T. would be great but then not to even try to target them was disappointing.

I had two brilliant days fishing with Blackout Charters. Despite the extremely windy weather Kerry had plenty of sheltered marks to go to. Kerry and Sherryl kept in touch with me throughout the booking process. All of the fishing equipment was top good quality. The boat was clean and felt extremely safe despite the rough weather. There was a large... More

To start with I would of rated the trip 5 but I didn't catch the big one. That wasn't for Kerry's lack of trying its just happens that way on some days. Kerry put us on to a few great spots and the Spanish Mac were there but just got busted. I spent 20 mins or so flexing my muscles... More
