Black Marlin Switch-baiting Day Trip

AUD A$1,400.00
  • Duration: 12 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: PZN11S

Ever hand fed a black marlin before? This about as close as you will get to it. This has to be our favourite method to catch black marlin. 
We tow baited teasers behind the boat. Once a fish is raised in the spread we draw the fish closer to the boat, by retrieving the teasers and slowing the boat. As the teasers come within pitching distance, approx 10 - 15 ft, we pitch the bait to the marlin; and quickly remove the teasers. Once the marlin eats, we give a 5 second pause; then throw the bail and start to wind up the drag. You are now in hand to hand combat with a black marlin. 

All our Escape Day Trips are suitable for anglers of all experience levels and launch daily from Innisfail, Cairns or Port Douglas. 

All our charters are booked on a private basis catering for a maximum of 3 anglers.

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. 

That evening you will be emailed your photos from the day.

You will be chauffeured to and from the boat ramp by air-conditioned 4WD.

All this punctuates some of the best local sportfishing on offer.
