"Top guide who knows what he's doing, will go above and beyond to find the fish and accommodate to whatever you need. Top bloke, excellent service and quality gear. Highly recommend a booking."
"Booked in for a day fishing and from the moment I was collected, until my return, I was treated like royalty. The fishing was good with a variety of fish including 3 large barramundi, all released, many more missed (my fault haha) and a handful of small fish, including some healthy mangrove jacks. Fishing tackle was in new condition and plentiful. Will’s knowledge was amazing. Thanks for making me feel special and showing me a few tricks. I will be out again next time I'm in town!!!"
"I can’t thank Will enough for an amazing day, he promised me my first barra and came through. We fished the Daintree. Missed a few big ones, but that’s fishing. Great guide, great set-up and knows every inch of the river. Picked up and dropped off from home. If you're thinking of doing a charter, give him a call, you won't be disappointed!! I’ll be booking back in next time I'm in town! Thanks again mate."
"Will was awesome. From the moment he picked me up, till I was dropped back at my hotel, I was so well looked after. Fish Hunter FNQ made a birthday fish one to remember. I had two wishes: 1 to catch my first barra; 2 was to get a jungle perch, both were achieved through a very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend Fish Hunter FNQ to anyone wanting a great day out on the water catching fish, you won’t be disappointed. I will be sure to book again when I come back up later in the year. Thanks again mate."
"What a fantastic way to spend a birthday! Will was definitely the best guide for our Daintree River adventure. Will was really knowledgeable of the area, as well as giving genuinely helpful advice as required to help my husband and I catch our first Barramundi on lures and have fun with a range of different sportfish in FNQ. The Fish Hunter sportfishing charter is an experience not to be missed by avid lure fisherman and eager novices alike. Will tailors the quality equipment provided and techniques used to suit both conditions and angler requirements very well. We had an absolute ball and hope to return again!!!"
"Thank you Will, for a fantastic day out. Des and I learnt a huge amount about using lures and plastics. You put us on some amazing spots and it was great to be able to catch fish all day long and such a variety of fish. The scenery up the creek was also amazing. We will be sure to give you a call next time we are up that way."
"With pick up and drop off at our hotel in Port Douglas, the days fishing with Will couldn't have been easier to organise. The Daintree River is stunning with crocs on every corner and plenty of hot spots to cast too. Will is a great guide and knows the area very well. I highly recommend his guiding services."
