Greg regularly organizes such trips to the outer reef and to the Hardline, to cater for the fisherman who wants to experience fishing like no other. On previous trips we have headed out to the Hardline and beyond to chase this fishing Mecca, but on this occasion we would be steaming out investigate such reefs as Trogibee, Eaton, Denton and the reef area locally known as the Rats Tails which lay about 160km east of Mackay.
Fourteen anglers have just returned from an awesome fishing adventure as Reefari Fishing Charters paired their 33ft Cougar Cat with the 80ft Centurion mothership to spend 5 days and nights fishing some remote reefs up to 200 km’s out of Mackay.
After steaming 12 hours through the night the group woke up to day 1 with the daylight breaking over the remote Trogabee reef and one real big problem…
These Mothershipping trips range to the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef with countless fishing destinations and choices and even out to the edge of the continental shelf. This is where Centurion is ideal for cruising these remote reefs, with huge fuel capacity to reach Bugatti Reefs, Kindemar and heaps more from 200 Kilometres,.
Centurion is the way to go for comfort and size, with boats size really does matter. This is where on a long trip, the space and good accommodation, makes the trip more enjoyable over a longer charter.
Centurion cruises at 8 knots which covers these large distance comfortably, cruising throughout the night, waking up at the prized fishing locations.
Definitely a great place to go on your next fishing holiday and charter with an endless amount of fishing spots and great fishing destinations, also with a huge variety of fish species to match.
Mackay fishing Charters will look after you and be able to tailor a charter to suit your needs.
Mackay is truly blessed for us Offshore fisherman, with numerous island to the south, east and Whitsunday islands to the north.
For the smaller tinnies and boats, try the reef surrounding Taroba Rock, just to the Northeast of Flat top and Round Top island just east of the Pioneer River Mouth, very easily accessible and produces some great fish at times.
