Ribbon Reefs Species Guide
The chart shows how the Ribbon Reefs compare to our other locations in terms of the main sportfish that we target. Cast the reef edge for GTs, pull a coral trout from a shallow reef or troll the reef edge for big mackerel, yellowfin and wahoo. So many options, the hardest part is choosing what to do on the second day!
Every day on the Ribbon Reefs brings new possibilities, and with such a variety of fishing styles and species available, this location is perfect for anglers wanting to experience all the possibilities that a remote reef area can offer. There’s lots of GTs here, and at certain times of the year they are consistently in the 25-35kg range, with the occasional monster fish thrown in. The soft plastic and light jigging around the reefs is spectacular at times, with a mix of reef and pelagic species. The light tackle casting over the reef flats is also spectacular, and expect to lose lots of lures when fishing the reef flats in 2-4m of water. And then there’s trolling for mackerel, sailfish, yellowfin and marlin.
We’ll work our way between different anchorages each day, and you’ll fish a large area of reef, meaning plenty of options for different types of fishing along the way. And of course if you have a group of 3 anglers, your group will all fish together on one of our sportfishing boats and you can choose exactly what you want to do at any time.
