Barra & Billfish with
Luke Fallon Sport
& Game Fishing
Luke began Luke Fallon Sport & Game Fishing in 2000 guiding from his home town on Townsville primarily for barra in the local river systems. Over the many years since he has spent time in both the saltwater and impoundments all along the Queensland coast guiding his clients onto fish of a lifetime.
Luke is also well known in Australian game fishing circles as the skipper of the 56 foot gameboat KEKOA and a veteran of 35 Cairns giant black marlin seasons since starting as a crewman as a teenager.
The biggest tell of a great fishing guide is one who spends all their spare time on the water for the pure love of fishing!
And this is certainly true of Luke. He has fished all over the world for the pure love of it, from barramundi and black marlin at home, to tarpon and snook and sailfish in Florida, and beyond.
For impoundment barra he started fishing Peter Faust Dam in the 1990’s when it first opened. He has spent many a season at both Tinaroo and Monduran dams and also regularly fishes Kinchent, Temburra, Callide and Awonga dams.
In the salt, he began fishing Townsville and Hinchenbrook with the legendary Vic McCristal as a teenager and most recently spent 9 seasons guiding in the Gulf of Carpentaria followed by three seasons in the Great Sandy Straits (Fraser Island). In 2021 he put a client onto a 123cm saltwater monster there – a truly memorable fish for that far south!
On the gamefishing scene he has skippered clients to marlin – blue, black and striped – all along the east coast of Australia from Cairns to the Whitsundays, to Fraser Island, the Gold Coast and as far south as Bermagui on traditional light and heavy tackle as well as fly.
