12 Hour Trips

These trips can be either day or night fishing.
Normal trip times would be 6.00am to 6.00pm
or 5.00pm to 5.00am
For full boat bookings, these times can be flexible.

24 Hour Trips

These are our most popular due to the balance of both night and day fishing.

Normal scheduled times are 4.00pm to 6.00pm departures and return 24 hours later. For your convenience “Sir Reel” has air conditioned cabins if a rest is required. Other than that you can fish all night. Unlike other operators we crew our boat so that at any time if the fishing goes off the boil we shift spots right through the night enabling our clients to get as much fishing in as possible.

These trips are our most common and with our experienced crew you can be assured of some great fishing action whilst your every need is catered for. The whole boat booking can also be worked on a pro rata system for passenger numbers between the guidelines.


What will I catch?

We pride ourselves on delivering the best that the reef has to offer.

Commonly we would base our night fishing on Red Emperor and Large Mouth Nannygai. Of course their is a lot of by catch along with this. Spangled emperor, Cobia, Cod, Green Job Fish, Mangrove Jack and lots more.

Through the day time the focus is on Coral Trout but it is normal to catch a bunch of Red Throat and other species with these. We would normally run out some balloons for Mackerel as well.

On the trip out and back to the reef our clients are also welcome to put out a selection of high speed lures quite often these will produce a Mackerel or Wahoo.

All fish are gutted and gilled and bagged up for our guests when they return.

Fishing Gear

We are proud of our association with Shimano and use their rods and reels exclusively. For our bottom fishing we supply good quality glass rods teamed with Spheros, TLD, Tekota and Tyrnos reels. If our clients have there own gear they are welcome to bring this along.

In addition all terminal tackle and bait are supplied on these trips along with any lures or prepared baits for Pelagic fish.

  • Can't recommend highly enough Cliff and the guys from Northern Conquest Charters, San Miguel. From organising the trip from interstate with Cliff to a skipper who worked bloody hard to put us on the fish (Stuie, you're a legend!!). Then there was Chris and Bill who kept us fed, baited and generally entertained, exceptional service and dedication. Awesome trip, a huge thanks from the Darwin mob, we'll be back!!Bert McMahon
  • We just got off the boat after a 4 day fishing trip and all 10 of us loved it. All the staff were great and could'nt do enough to make you feel comfortable which made our trip thoughly enjoyable. Mick the chef cooked up a storm, and I think ive put on 2kgs in 4 days, hehe. Carl and Bill were sensational deckies and really new their stuff and never stoped working throughout the whole trip. We picked a bad week for the weather unfortunatly, but a big thanks goes out to the skipper (Bob) for always trying to get us on the fish when mother nature was against us. Thanks again, Chris from the Wandering Fisho's 2016.Christopher Rimmer
