As a charter u would expect them to know where the fish are and have some spots despite the weather or season we changed spots about 7 times n with 15 people on board we caught like 5 fish we basically spent more time travelling from location to location then actually fishing
Had also hired an additional deckhand to help out the boys and cook us the bbq the cooking part was ok but when we were fishing they only cut up a small portion of bait n we had to all cut it up ourselves they spent more time fishing themselves
And in the captains words we were not paying to fish but paying for his experience I spent nearly $3000 and ur experience only got us 5 fish would not recommend this charter to anyone

Majority of party have never fished before, and very limited experience on a boat, skipper kept with in the harbour, most of group caught fish and that was the main point of taking them fishing
