Scott Reef

Scott Reef

Scott Reef is 240m North of Broome, we can operate there anytime between August and November with the later months generally being the best weather.  Charters to Scott Reef need to be a minimum of 9 days due to the distance travelled.

The Scott Reef system is made up of a large pear shaped atoll with inside access and a horseshoe shaped atoll just 4 miles south.  The total area is roughly 20 nautical miles long and 15 miles across.  Due to its remote location the reef system is seldom fished for pelagic species.  It is a place where you have to expect the unexpected.

Suggested Itinerary

Following is a suggested 9 day itinerary for your fishing adventure.  As you will see below this gives you 8 nights on the boat and 7 full days of a variety of fishing.

  • Day 1: Depart Broome around 4pm
  • Day 2: Arrive Marlin Grounds early and fish all day for Marlin as we travel towards Scott Reef. Arrive at Scott Reef mid afternoon for either a troll or popper session.
  • Days 3 – 7: Fish at Scott Reef

(Target species will be Dogtooth Tuna, Sailfish, Broadbill, Yellowfin, Wahoo, GT’s, Red Bass, Coral Trout, Humphead Maori Wrasse, and many more reef species. During these days we will use a number of different fishing tactics including trolling, jigging, baits, popper fishing, lures and drifting. Other activities during this time will include snorkelling, swimming and eating. During the week depending on weather there will be 1 night broadbill fishing included.)

  • Day 8: Early morning popper session, Depart Scott Reef around 0930 and Marlin Fish until dark.
  • Day 9: Arrive in Broome during the morning

Fishing All the Way

  • We tow our 2 dinghies to Scott Reef, so there will be a mixture of fishing from Reel Teaser and sessions from the dinghies. Whilst towing the dinghies to and from the reef we are able to run marlin lures off one side. All charters to Scott Reef will include a variety of fishing as mentioned above. You will have the opportunity to fish during the night at anchor as well as during the day.

Costs

  • For full booking terms and conditions and costs please refer to the Charter Prices page.
The Vics Escape to go fishing! In July 2021, we were lucky enough to escape a Melbourne winter and enjoy the most wonderful trip aboard the Reel Teaser. Three couples, mostly novice fishermen became experts overnight under the tutelage of Ross and Critter. We couldn't believe our eyes as the fish just jumped onto the hooks. Barramundi, mulloway, fingermark and tuna just couldn't resist us, and we ate them later, prepared by the amazing Steph. As well as the fishing experience we also were able to see the most stunning scenery, we hiked to waterholes for a refreshing swim, we visited Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef (which was my favourite) and best of all we had plenty of relaxing downtime to just drink in the beauty, isolation and the serenity of the stunning Kimberley region. Thanks to Ross, Critter, Steph and Tracey in Broome for an unforgettable experience. We feel it was the trip of a lifetime and we have recommended it to all our friends who are now also very keen to have a Reel Teaser Fishing adventure. Thanks again, we'll be back!!!

Spectacular! A huge thank you to Ross, Tracey, Critter and Steph, the team of Reel Teaser for treating us to the trip of a life time! With the backdrop of the magnificent Kimberly coastline the 6 of us novice fishermen/women were given lessons in casting on top quality fishing rods by the very experienced and extremely patient Ross and Critter. And then we were off! With their knowledge of the waterways, the little creeks, the muddy banks, we were guarenteed to catch a fish or 10! And we did, barramundi, mulloway, fingermark, bluefin tuna and others. Thankfully no crocs! Ross and Critters professionalism, love and respect for the land and water as well as their enthusiasm for their job (and what a job!) was contagious and made our trip very special. As well as the fantastic fishing we swam in fresh waterholes, saw the magic of Montgomery reef, zoomed through Horizontal falls and swam in the crystal waters at Silicon Beach. On board the well equipped, very comfortable and cool boat we were so well looked after by the delightful Steph. She made superb, plentiful meals and was skilled in preparing our freshly caught fish. Barramundi crumbed or baked, tuna sashimi, smoked fish and ceviche. Delicious Steph! And we have to give a mention to Ross's super tasty chilli mud crab. Needless to say we loved every moment of our trip on the Reel Teaser. The fishing, the company, the music and the scenery were nothing short of spectacular. We hope to revisit the Reel Teaser one day and try our hand at catching that big fish! Thanks guys Annie and Pete

Once in a lifetime experience Thanks to the crew onboard the Reel Teaser we experienced the Kimberley wilderness at it’s best. We not only caught wild barramundi, we got blue fin tuna, gold band snapper, mulloway, red emperor, mangrove jack and mud crabs. Ross (skipper), Critter (crew), were very professional and helpful in organising 6 inexperienced fishing adults to enjoy their knowledge of fishing the Kimberley and the waterways north west. Our onboard delicious food was prepared by Steph, we had sushi, sashimi, baked, breadcrumbed fish, chilli mud crab, as well as fillet steak and stir fries. Reel teaser is a very comfortable 65 foot boat, the fishing tenders and fishing equipment are top class. We visited very remote waterholes for swimming in amongst stunning landscape. We spotted crocodiles, dolphins, a whale as well. If you get the opportunity don’t hesitate, 10 out of 10, the crew make it work.

The best! A huge thank you for the most unforgettable week fishing in the Kimberly. Our group of friends and family included experienced and novice fishers, adults and children. All of us had a fantastic time, the boat was comfortable, Steph’s food delicious (keeping the fussiest kids happy) and the fishing was superb. A combination of Ross and Critters expert tuition, their knowledge of the best spots to catch Barra and a good deal of beginners luck meant we all left happy with lots of good catches (including a 112cm Barra)! There were lots of laughs, some competitive board games, some great swimming in rock pools, magic sunsets in the most breathtaking place and great fishing! Couldn’t have wished for anything more.

Shouldn't be Missed Avid barra angler or can't tie a lure knot but dreaming of catching your first barra then this is the outfit for you. A very comfortable boat with an outstanding professional and friendly crew. The installation of a large gyroscope has improved stability so that the issue of seasickness is almost eliminated. There is as much or as little fishing as you wish with expert tuition for the novice or mere suggestions for the experienced. There is great variety in the delicious meals and you will not go hungry. The scenery alone is worth the ticket but it is a wonderful overall experience. This is a trip that should be on everyones bucket list.

Barra Beauty With 75 'excellent' reviews and me back for my fourth trip - well I clearly think it the best barra experience! We are so lucky to be able to experience the beauty of the Kimberley wilderness, fresh barra, mangrove jack, smoked salmon and the distinctive mud crab. Many thanks to all the great crew of Reel Teaser Fishing Adventures for these special moments, air conditioned comfort and the best meals. As Arnie said 'I'll be back'!

Hot Action @ Rowley Shoals An amazing trip to the Rowley Shoals with great friends and great hosts/crew From the minute we boarded Reel Teaser the action began. The fishing was second to none - from chasing big blue marlin to sight casting for large reef species. In between the fishing, Steph was cooking up a storm of tasty treats which never disappointed. Snorkelling the dinghy drifts was one of the best things we have ever done - the reef life was out of this world Thanks Reel Teaser team Ross, Tracey, Critter and Steph for looking after us and dedicating long hours to deliver a trip we will never forget Andy and Fiona

Trip of a lifetime Trip out to Scott reef with Real teaser in November. Ross had us Hooked up to a 200kg blue Marlin within minutes of arriving on the marlin grounds. Great way to start the trip and it only got better from there. The fishing was unbelievable, surfing was great fun, diving in some of the clearest waters I have seen and the food was top quality. Some great fish caught over the week with a few big catches going in the book that can only be described as catches of a lifetime. Highly recommend anybody thinking of booking a live aboard fishing trip to go with Real teaser fishing adventures. Thanks again to Ross, Critter and Steph. We will be back to do it all again soon 🎣🎣🏄🏿‍♂️🏄🏿‍♂️🎣🎣
