This is the big one! the Great Barrier Reef is the home of the Giant Black Marlin. Utopia charters run two and multiple day, live aboard trips to the Myrmidon Reef. Longer charters are available, fishing the shelf all the way through to the ribbon reefs between Lizard Island and Cairns, where Black Marlin can grow up to 1500 pounds and fish over 1000 pounds are caught every year.
Between September and December is the best time to catch your fish of a lifetime. Utopia has live aboard trips on the Barrier Reef to maximise your fishing time when targeting the Giant Black Marlin.
Tom and Utopia Charters strictly adhere to the tagging and release of all billfish but on very rear occasions a record fish or monumental capture presents itself. This is one such case where the fish died at the side of the boat.
