For Sailfish and Marlin we switch bait using teasers, dead bait and soft plastics only.
This method has been adopted to avoid damage to the fish and boredom to the anglers.
PLEASE contact us for good tides when heading to Broome.

What to expect on charterAs well as Sailfish & Marlin we also catch Spanish Mackerel, Cobia & Longtail Tuna as we often run a deep diving lure in the patten – Not bad by-catch! Over the past 20 years game fishing we’ve picked up a few tips n tricks, so while your waiting for Mr Sailfish, feel free to ask Ringo or myself for a few of them, we’e only to happy to spread the knowledge.
Billistic is on the move all day and covers a lot of ground.
Tackle & TacticsWhile on ‘Billistic’ you will be using 10kg spinning outfits, main reason is speed as you need to drop a bait back to the nose of either Sailfish or Marlin a.s.a.p. Our spread consists of up to seven teasers and drop back baits can be garfish, milkfish, mullet or even pilchards. This is hands on game fishing similar to fly fishing but on a larger scale and much more exciting.
ProtectionHats, essential just make sure you can hear the skipper as he’s the one upstairs giving you directions as to where to drop your bait.
Sunnies: Polarised, just so as you can see the fish better and make sure you have slip on shoes as we leave from the beach.
