GT Sports Fishing Charters

Game & Sports Fishing

Power, explosive, visual, brute, stubborn – are all words that come to mind when we think about Giant Trevally or GT as they are affectionately known.

They are one of the world’s best sport fishing target species and how lucky are we to have them in abundance throughout the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of the Whitsundays.

We can take you for 1 to 4 nights to test your strength, gear, and will power against the brutes of the reef, the Mighty GT

Prices from $1500 pp
Private charters are available for up to 4 guests

The Great Barrier Reef off the Whitsundays

The best geographical location on the coast for targeting the GT. A combination of our larger tides and the most complex, intertwining reef systems on the coast, create the prime habitat for the GT. The fast rising and lowering waters around these systems, hold large schools of bait and you guessed it, hungry GTs waiting to blast through the nervously stacked bait fish schools.

Casting for GTs with rods and reels in the 100lb range, is traditionally the method with large topwater poppers and stickbaits enticing the explosive bites. These fish hit like freight trains and test even the most experienced angler.

Our average fish out there to date is around the 21kg mark, however they can grow in excess of 60kg!

1 to 4 nights for up to 4 guests

We offer 1 to 4 nights for up to 4 guests, fishing for the mighty GT on board our 38ft Sport Fishing machine "GHOST" which is equipped for comfortable liveaboard trips to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

All meals are supplied, along with water. BYO alcohol in moderation.
