Situated approximately 40 nautical miles West of Carnarvon lay the Dorre, Bernier & Koks Island group and north of this group is the jaw dropping Gnaraloo Coast. This spectacular region is a favourite destination for many an angler and is home to some of the best fishing along the West Australia coast.

While cruising amongst the islands and along the Gnaraloo Coast you may encounter such species as Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Estuary Cod, Trevally, Mulloway, Baldchin Groper and Pink Snapper. There must be something in the water in Carnarvon as a lot of the species landed tend to be in the “extra large” category.

This is a great problem to have, I guess, having your arms stretched with that fish of a lifetime. Seeing the distant colour emerging from the depths, followed by cheers of onlookers as a thumping fish pops up on the surface is always a buzz.

Top Gun Charters can’t discount the thrill of hooking up to a Mackerel, Tuna, and Cobia or of course a billfish, while trolling these exciting waters.

Why not bring along your own lures for slow and fast trolling. Why not try your luck at jigging with soft plastics or bring along some lighter gear or if you like getting wet, jump in and explore while snorkelling or spearfishing. Or get off the boat for a bit and walk the shores of some of the islands, maybe flick a line in the real shallow there’s always a few mud crabs around for a bit of fun.

What a great way to spend a week away with mates and it’s not too far from Perth. You can join a group or fill the boat with your own group and have it to yourselves for the week, they can accommodate you, either way.

Top Gun Charters will put you on the spots, the rest is up to you. 15 guests are our maximum; however, we find guests up to 12, works well. Whether you have an exclusive boat booking, small group or on your own we will accommodate you on your fishing trip. Opting an exclusive boat booking means we won’t add other guests to your trip.

The Gnaraloo Coast and Carnarvon Islands trip commences when we depart port on Sunday morning and concludes on the following Thursday afternoon, back in port. For your convenience they provide free accommodation on board the Saturday night and the Thursday night. (meals not included). Before you head home, your catch will be packed and sealed in a complimentary esky. You will also receive a complimentary thumb drive containing all your fishing holiday snaps.
