Escape Full Day Trip

GTs like this a big silver slabs of muscle. Pop till you drop.

“Run to Paradise”

Boatside GT Escape and enjoy an action packed day sportfishing the outer reefs with “CSSS” - the sportfishing specialists. Witness explosive surface strikes popping the reef edges – Enjoy manic light tackle sessions lure casting the reef flats – Get your arms stretched jigging the drop-offs – Relish the sound of screaming reels trolling the cobalt currents.

These trips are an ideal introduction to sportfishing where you can target a broad spectrum of species and participate in a variety of techniques. Or should you have a particular species and technique in mind your day can be customised to suit.

Ice-cold soft drinks and water are onboard for your refreshment, morning tea consists of fresh baked pastries and fruit, lunch is served as individual gourmet platters; and cheese, biscuits and nibbles served for afternoon snacks. Back at the ramp you will receive your photo USB stick with all the days memorable moments before being chauffeured home.  All this punctuates some of the best local sportfishing on offer.

Big GTs one of our Specialities at Coral Sea Sportfishing Safaris.

If popping and stickbaiting is your thing it’s not uncommon to encounter GT’s over 30kg, Spanish Mackerel over 20kg or Coral Trout over 8kg at these local reefs.

Up on the reef flats there is action a plenty with a plethora of species all readily willing to take a lure, some clients say this is the best part of the day as you get a really good up close look at the reef and a massive variety of fish species.

A nice Coral Sea GT landed at one of the outter reefs.

Should you be a fan of a shorter stick and deep-water structure there are Dogtooth Tuna just waiting to maraud any jigs offered up. We see these bruisers up to 50Kg to the boat and hook up to unseen denizens of untold proportions only to be left wondering exactly how big it was.

For the armchair angler our trolling sessions raise all manner of species from the blistering speed demons…Wahoo to awe-inspiring billfish such as Black Marlin and Sailfish.
