About Coral Sea Sportfishing Safaris

About CSSS

We are the Sportfishing Specialists. We know the where, when, why and how of sportfishing. But what is it exactly that we do? We hunt the biggest meanest fish in the Coral Sea by casting surface lures, jigging and light tackle trolling. We take you to destinations where few have the capacity to venture and the fish are big and bold. Most importantly we provide you with the knowledge required to hook, fight and land those bucket list fish. “We do the miles so you get the smiles” is a slogan we have embraced. We definitely do the miles on our “Extended Safaris” out to remote outer reefs off Lucinda, the same can be said for our “Escape Day Trips” on the Great Barrier Reef; we travel that little bit further than the rest getting away from major population centres in order to get you bending on as many big fish as possible. This slogan reflects our service as well; our staff will go that little bit further to create the adventure of a lifetime for you. We use quality tackle and equipment, Wilson Venom Livefibre rods exclusively and Shimano and Diawa reels; and they are all in excellent condition. Our 8 metre Hooker Boats centre console "Insidious" is state of the art and custom built for fishability, safety and comfort. Chasing big GTs is our passion, not just our business. We live to see all our clients achieve their angling goals. We even go to the extreme of offering our clients that little bit of extra incentive, by way of our "CSSS Big Fish Club".
