We are the Sportfishing Specialists. We know the where, when, why and how of sportfishing. But what is it exactly that we do?
We hunt the biggest meanest fish on the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea by casting surface lures, jigging and light tackle trolling. On our guided fishing charters we take you to destinations where few have the capacity to venture and the fish are big and bold. Most importantly we provide you with the knowledge required to hook, fight and land those bucket list fish.
We have embraced this slogan whole heartedly. We definitely do the miles on our “Remote Safaris” to the outer reefs and around Hinchinbrook, the same can be said for our “Escape Day Trips” on the Great Barrier Reef; we travel that little bit further than the rest getting away from major population centers in order to get you bending on as many big fish as possible.
What species do we target? Primarily we target Giant Trevally (GT’s), Spanish Mackerel, Coral Trout, Maori Wrasse, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo.
As a by-product we catch a myriad of other species that all readily take lures. That’s the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea.
Doing those miles and getting those smiles requires a serious offshore machine, that's why we chose Insidious She is designed and built by "Hooker Boats" here in Cairns specifically for the task at hand. Insidious is a comfortable and stable platform offering maximum fishability and she gets along quite nicely with the twin Yamahas, leaving those miles well and truly in her wake. At 8 meters in length there is ample room to fish 3 anglers on the heavy popping gear all day.
At “CSSS” quality service is paramount, we understand this is your holiday and as such your satisfaction is vital to our success.

Capt. Greg “Harry” Harriman is our Company Director and resident fishing fanatic. This is the man who at his wedding declared to his wife he loved her more than fishing; everybody in the room knew that was a lie. We sat down with Capt. Harry and got his story, well the brief version anyway.
