For over 10 years, Big Fish Down Under on private charter boat, Moana III and the Cairns Marlin Fishing Fleet has been finding good numbers of Blue Marlin in the Coral Sea, off the continental shelf, outside the Great Barrier Reef of Far North Queensland.

In recent times the numbers recorded are rapidly increasing throughout the Coral Sea.

Generally the best time to come and experience the peak season of Blue Marlin Fishing is from November to March, however its not uncommon to catch the Giant Black Marlin and Blue Marlin on the same trip October to January.

The 2011 Black Marlin season and early 2012 Blue Marlin season have both seen a huge number of Blue marlin 300 to 500lbs with a couple over 800lbs.!!

In September 2008, Captain Daniel and Moana III crew released a massive Blue Marlin off Bougainville Reef in the Coral Sea with a conservative estimate weight of 1200 lbs! .........See our Vieo page.....

Captain Dan has just returned from Papua Nuigini National Titles in Rabaul. In amongst our exciting week We had a 7 & 1/2 hour battles with an estimated 400lb Plus Blue on 30lb tackle, it was a potential PNG National record for 30lb test but unfortunatly the line parted with the fish tail wrapped less then 50ft from the boat.

We did however manage to catch enough for one of our clients Annalisa Aspen to take out Champion Female Angler for Heavy tackle, Congratulations Annalisa..

If an electrifing and aerobatic beautiful Blue Marlin is what you have dreamed of then we recommend a trip from Cairns on the Moana III, Luxury Charter Boat with Big Fish Down Under between November to March.
