My second time round with
Mark and was even better than last year which I would have said was hard to beat. Perfect mix of river and reef fishing over two great days and will be back again next year. Thanks again for a wonderful trip Mark.

Unbelievable. Mark was an amazing guide who's local knowledge got us onto heaps of incredible fish - Barra, GT, Mackerel, Queenys, just to name a few. We will be back to fish with him again. Highly recommend.

The trip was good and the owner Mark was great but we had 4 people on the boat fishing and with Mark l found it a bit to crowded. You could only fish in the one spot and not move around the boat. I would go with Mark again but would go private and not shared.

Mark is an excellent guide with good boats and local knowledge. He found fish for me five out of five days. Visited Endeavour River,Annan River, Reef and Horseshoe Lagoon in Lakefield National Park.

I was in Cooktown for a couple of days, visiting from Sydney. I took my 9 year old out on a boat with Mark from Gone Fishing Cooktown. We motored out about 15 minutes into the ocean, and pretty quickly were pulling in some big queenies, a small shark and a 15kg Spanish mackerel. As a novice I don't think I would have pulled the Spaniard in without Mark's advice. Now I have memories to last a lifetime and some ripper pictures to hang up at home. Unreal morning, thanks Gone Fishing, would fully recommend to anyone.
