Come and fish the aqua waters of Broome and experience one of our magnificient Sailfish or Marlin.
Broome Western Australia
Broome can boast as being the Sailfish capital of Australia and we’ve been operating game fishing charters since 1996. Come aboard 'Billistic', our custom 11.5 metre custom game fishing boat, enjoy our great shady saloon, wide 3.6m transom and 360º walk around deck. Makes sail fishing just that much more enjoyable.
Sail fishing is one of the most spectacular forms of game fishing around with specko jumps, back flips and tail-walks not uncommon and our Sail's and Marlin are released unhurt to fight another day!
The Broome game fishing season starts in April and lasts until October/November, fish and weather dependent.
We specialise in Game Fishing Only covering Sailfish, Marlin, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna and Cobia. The Sailfish turn up in numbers late June and finish in October/November. Sail fishing is all light tackle so your partner and kids can join in too. We pride ourselves in being the best at what we do, you won't be disappointed.
Fishing for Sailfish and Marlin is done by switch baiting off teasers and onto a trolled bait. We exclusively use circle hooks approved by the Billfish Foundation; this has increased hook ups and dramatically reduced injury to the Sailfish.
All fishing gear is supplied as well as lunch, nibbles, soft drinks and water.
All you need to bring is a hat, sunglasses (polarised are essential), camera and alcohol if required. The boat is equipped with an onboard toilet and fridge freezer.
A day charter starts at 7.15am pickup and arrives back around 4.00pm.
