Hotshot Charters invites you to try Queensland’s world famous fishing for yourself. With a local crew, top of the range vessel, and track record of catching record-breaking fish, this Gold Coast fishing charter leaves nothing to be desired. Fishing their home waters from December through August, the dedicated crew can also be found chasing giant Black Marlin in Cairns from September to December.
Hotshot is a semi-custom 43’ O’Brien that is family owned and operated, famous for its dry and stable ride. This comfortable vessel is fully stocked with top brand equipment. On board, you’ll be treated to Simrad and Furuno electronics to put you on fish, and will be aided and abetted in your fishing quest by Lee’s outriggers and a Reelax fighting chair.
The crew offers single day charters and multi-day fishing adventures. Both will take you offshore in search of Blue Marlin, which you’ll target by trolling lures and using bait and switch — one of the best-proven methods, and a technique the crew is very experienced in. As well as Blue Marlin, you’ll hook other Billfish, including Black and Striped Marlin and Short Billed Spearfish.
If you’re after light tackle fishing, visit from December to March to hook Black Marlin and Sailfish. And with a bycatch of Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Spanish Mackerel, this is a game fishing extravaganza you shouldn’t miss.
On multi-day trips, you will head out to some of the most remote and productive Gold Coast fishing spots, such as Lady Musgrave Island and Fraser Island. Here, you will be targeting the same species but will have time to really get the most out of everything the area has to offer.
Your crew are members of the Billfish Foundation, and they tag and release all Marlin unless chasing world records. They won the Billfish foundation’s “Top-tagging Captain” award for Black Marlin, and have won the “Top-tagging Angler” award 2 years in a row for this species, too!
Please note that the crew doesn’t do bottom fishing.
