For over 10 years now Captain Tim Dean and his crew in Australia have been the world leaders in the field of Bluewater Hunting for large Pelagic species of fish.
Captain Tim Dean first started targeting marlin for spearfishing using a technique similar to the already popular "bait and switch" method of fishing for the billfish. This technique has now become somewhat perfected on the Calypso with captures rates on billfish for spearfishermen the highest in the world.
We are now taking bookings for trips to the Great Barrier Reef for the 2014 Tuna Aggregation wide of Cairns.
Each year during the heavy tackle season there is a huge gathering of tunas wide of the reef, Yellowfin Tuna, Big-eye Tuna and Black Marlin. Literally thousands of tunas schooling under the Whale Sharks, making shallow dives count for shots on big fish each time.
Yellowfin to 200lbs, Big-eye to 150lb and Marlin too big to tell!!!
These trips start in November each year. Contact Captain Tim for details
