About Us – Blue Lightning Fishing Charters

Blue Lightning Marlin

The Mills family welcomes you to Blue Lightning Fishing Charters and Cruises, bringing the remote fishing destinations of the Western Australian Coast, including the Montebello and Abrolhos Islands to our valued clients!

From the Montebello Islands to Abrolhos Island on the Western Australian coast, we can cater you the fishing (and sightseeing) trip of a lifetime. Due to the remote-ness, the fishing here is exceptional with a vast array of species on offer ranging from mud crabs to marlin and everything in between – red emperor, coral trout, rankin cod, spangled emperor, Spanish mackerel, Giant Trevally, wahoo, sailfish and blue, black and striped marlin, just to name a few.

We strive to deliver you the fishing experience of a lifetime.

Fishing is our passion, we live and breathe it — even on our days off we are still out on the water fishing!

Blue Lightning Sailfish

The Montebello Islands are one of Western Australia’s premier spots to catch sailfish. In particular, peak season from July to November for both the small blacks and sails is exceptional!


Abrolhos and Montebello Islands offer some of Western Australia’s best marlin fishing – both light and heavy tackle. Customised trips at the Abrolhos April – June and Montebello June – December.


Popper fishing and soft plastics around the reefs produce some great quality GTs among many other popular and hard pulling sport and gamefish.


Fishing these islands is like being in another world. The fishing is exceptional with a great array of fish from reef species such as red emperor, coral trout, rankin cod, spangled emperor to GTs, mackerel, wahoo, sailfish and marlin.


You can experience game and bottom fishing all within close proximity of the Islands. And you even have the opportunity to go ashore and explore!
