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 in the Coral Sea by casting surface lures, jigging and light tackle trolling. 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.
At “CSSS” quality service is paramount, we understand this is your holiday and as such your satisfaction is vital to our success. We use quality tackle and equipment, Wilson Venom Livefibre rods exclusively and Shimano and Diawa reels; and they are all in excellent condition. Our 8 metre Hooker Boats centre console "Insidious" is state of the art and custom built for fishability, safety and comfort. Our office and logistics staff will provide you with concise information right from the initial point of contact through to your arrival for your adventure. Our guides are experienced, knowledgeable and ready to coach you through everything from tackle and technique through to landing fish. Our food is exquisite and our accommodating support crew is here to make this your holiday of a lifetime. All this is a part of our standard service.
We tailor the your package to you; the locations and the style of fishing are customised to your prerequisites. Should you wish to “pop till you drop”, or mix it up with a balance of everything, we will make it happen; our land-based accommodations range from swags to remote luxury resorts; the choice is yours.
“We do the miles so you get the smiles” is a slogan we have embraced. We definitely do the miles on our “Remote Safaris” to the outer reefs 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. This slogan reflects our service as well; our staff will go that little bit further to create the adventure of a lifetime for you.
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 Coral Sea.
If it’s an adventure-fishing holiday you’re after chasing some of the hardest fighting piscatorial brutes in the ocean, packaged in one of the most spectacular environments the planet has to offer then book with us “CSSS” – The Sportfishing Specialists.
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.
