Full Day Game Fishing Charters Broome

Makaira Game Fishing operates Fishing Charters in Broome, gateway to the spectacular Kimberly region, from May through to October.

Makaira Game Fishing is owned and operated by fishing enthusiasts who are committed to providing an all round experience when it comes to jumping aboard fishing charters in Broome to ensure customer satisfaction!  Whilst we specialise in Billfish, we are happy to customise your trip to suit your needs.  We fish some of the most spectacular destinations in Western Australia, which are rich in marine diversity. While fishing is foremost, we also believe a comfortable boat, friendly and knowledgeable crew and good food are all part of a great day on the water.  Everyone is welcome as we get just as much enjoyment from fishing with experienced anglers as we do guiding a novice through to landing their first Billfish.

Broome Fishing Charters head one of Australia’s leading light tackle Game Fishing destinations, anglers are blessed with phenomenal numbers of Sailfish.  All fishing for these high-speed predators is done through switch baiting on 10kg tackle.  This gives us the advantage of multiple hook ups as well as a much higher hook up to landing ratio when compared to other methods.

Broome’s rich tropical waters are not only home to abundant Sailfish numbers, but are also frequented by Black Marlin, Spanish Mackerel, Longtail Tuna, Cobia, GT’s and Queenfish to name a few which make our Broome Fishing Charters so much more exciting.  As well as fish species, on a daily basis we also encounter migrating Hump Back Whales, Dolphins, Sea Turtles, Sea Snakes and Bird life.

Peak Sailfish months are June through to October.  Broome is a very tidal destination, with tides reaching 10 metres at times.  As a result, advanced bookings are essential as we only fish the neap tides to ensure better fishing for you on our Fishing Charters in Broome.

All coffee, morning tea, lunch, afternoon nibbles and drinks are catered for, all anglers need to bring are a hat, camera and sunglasses.  All fishing gear is supplied. Makaira Game Fishing only uses top of the range Shimano gear and tackle for their Broome Fishing Charters.

Exmouth Fishing Charters are also available from November through to April.  Please contact us for further information about how we can help customise a trip to suit your needs.

Growing up in Adelaide, SA, Jeda spent his early years fine tuning his cold-water fishing for SA’s renowned enormous Yellowtail Kingfish and Snapper.   However, moving to Broome in 2008 to pursue Game Fishing Jeda hasn’t looked back.  Since then he has spent his time working on Game Fishing Charter boats in Broome, with the exception of one season working heavy tackle out of Cairns and Cooktown.   He is an absolute fishing enthusiast and when he has a day off from the Bluewater,  there’s a good chance you’ll find him on the muddy waters of the Fitzroy River chasing the mighty Barramundi.
