Fantastic days fishing with a great bunch of blokes. Landed 1 1/2 sailfish ( the other half was enjoyed by the bull sharks ), along with a massive Spaniard and Cobia with some brilliant video and camera footage to boot. Ben was a great skipper and Gav worked really hard to keep our lines in the water. Thanks to Tara for picking us up and dropping us from the hotel and when I get back to Broome, Ben will be one of the first till call to get back out on the water. Super day and highly recommend these guys. Footnote - don’t expect bottom fishing, these guys are all about landing and safely releasing sails and other pelagic.

Ben picked us up at our different locations, took us to Gantheaume point where we boarded the boat, he had two experienced staff on and himself and we were a small group so we aren’t fighting over lines. Within an hour of fishing we were into sailfish, we did not stop fishing from 7 until 3. 5 sailfish, lost two more, lost a big Mackey. Then he kept going trying to get everyone a fish, they are fishos for sure. Highly recommend and will be going again. Guy

I took our daughter Maddy and her partner Lewis out with our skipper Chris and the "deckie extraordinaire" Ringo to hopefully get them to catch a decent fish each. As we pushed the dingy out to jump on board I jokingly said to Chris "My wife has placed an order for a nice Mackie" (- her favourite fish to eat) After arriving at the secret spot Chris ran through the process of switch baiting and set the teasers and a lure for Mackies then "bang" I had a Mackie on the boat in less than 10 minutes - 1. - wife happy. Then we trolled for a bit longer and Lewis got a Mackie - his biggest fish ever. 2. - Lewie happy. We were rapt but Chris wanted us to get sails. Before too long Maddy had her first sail on the boat - 3. - Maddy happy then Lewis got onto a sailfish however there were 4 sailfish on lines at the same time so had to be cut-off at the boat and then i finally got a sailfish on the boat - a bloody ripper estimated by Chris to be just over 2.0 metres long while Ringo estimated it to be about 2.2 to 2.4 metres long, so i took Ringo's as correct. 4. - Rob happy. a great day had by all and a feed of fresh Spanish Mackeral to take home - 4 out of 3!!!!

If you are after an excellent game fishing experience on a great boat set up to do exactly that and a skipper who has many years experience putting punters on the fish then Broome Billfish Charters on 'Billistic' is where you have to go. We had a great funfilled 3 days catching 49 Sailfish in the idealic setting of Broome - what a great fishery and even better boat and Skipper Chris supported by deckie Kirsty doing a great job all day everyday. Thanks Chris

Chris took me and my dad out to find some sails and before he could finish his demonstration on how to hook a fish, dad was holding on for dear life and fighting a 30kg sail! Great experience and we also got a couple of spanish mackerel. Chris and Liam looked after us well and were a pleasant company to have for the trip. Thanks guys. An experienced of a lifetime!
