Cairns giant black marlin
KEKOA Sports Fishingis best known for fishing the Cairns giant black marlin season which runs from late September to late November each year.
During this time you’ll find KEKOA fishing waters of the Great Barrier Reef’s Ribbon Reefs. During this primarily live aboard season, we follow the fish up and down this 100+ mile stretch of reef between Cairns and Lizard Island in order to put you onto the very best possible fishing!
Fraser Island marlin fishing
Since 2018 KEKOA has been based the rest of the year December to September at Hervey Bay and fishing the waters east of the beautiful Fraser Island.
Fraser Island is an amazing fishery with world class fishing for blue marlin as well as a spectacular winter run of juvenile black marlin. In a given day we can catch a marlin grand slam, usually blue, black and striped marlin with the occasional sailfish and spearfish thrown in for good measure!
