Big Fish Down Under – Moana III

Capt. Daniel McCarthy of Big Fish Down Under has been a Cairns local for over 30 years, skippering a variety of Marlin and game fishing vessels since the age of 21. Over the years, he’s garnered an intimate knowledge of the profuse waterways surrounding Cairns, Cape York, Coral Sea, and New Guinea, and is happy to share his findings with all of his charter guests.

The Moana team is no stranger to numerous fishing achievements and recognitions either, including several prized tournaments and many 900+ lb grander Marlins.

Captain Daniel owns and operates “Moana III,” a 47’  luxury custom-built Dick Ward sportfisher powered by twin Cummins QSM 11 engines (660 HP each), with an average cruising speed of 25 knots. The boat is outfitted with a wide range of quality navigational electronics and marine technology, including Furuno 1100L depth sounder and fishfinder with twin 2 kW transducers, Wesmar 110 kHz 360” scanning sonar, as well as a Furuno NavNet VX2 chartplotter.

The boat is fully air-conditioned and outfitted with two showers and two separate toilets. Onboard facilities include a private stateroom with ensuite and TV/DVD, a convection microwave oven and cooktop, 2 refrigerators and 3 freezers, as well as a desalinator. For overnight trips, Moana comes equipped with 4 single, 1 extra double, and 2 crew bunks.

Moana III started offering fishing trips back in 2006, specializing in the famous Cairns’ Marlin, while also providing light tackle and reef fishing expeditions to the Great Barrier Reef and beyond. They’ll do everything to put you on Marlin, Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Snapper, and much more.

All the fishing gear for your party is provided by the Moana crew; in particular, the team utilizes a full set of custom-built Laurie Casey rods mounted onto Penn International and Shimano reels. Snacks, lunch, as well as drinks are all parts of the standard fishing charter, as is the cleaning and filleting of your catch following the trip.

Fishing since he could walk, Captain Daniel McCarthy is not the least bit shy about the scale of his fishing addiction. As the president of Cairns Game Fishing Association, he's a strong proponent of conservation efforts, as well as tag and release game fishing. He has more than a quarter of a century of fishing experience and has been skippering boats since he was 21.
