Head Hunter Charters

Head Hunter Charters are on a mission to take you fishing and show you a great time while you’re catching big fish on the NSW South Coast! They operate out of Bermagui and Merimbula and can take you to the reefs and the offshore waters, rich with the most desirable big game fish.

You will fish aboard a 41’ Steber flybridge boat – the “Head Hunter”. Powered by two 425 HP Yanmar engines, it can develop some serious speed. This is a large and comfortable boat for up to 10 people, with a full-size salon, toilet, shower, kitchen, a multimedia system, and a large flybridge.

You’ll get all the fishing equipment on board, including rods, reels, tackle, and bait. The crew will be more than happy to clean and fillet your fish, so you can take it home for a delicious meal after a productive day on the water.

The summer months can see the East Australian Current bring warm currents down from the north into Bermagui and with them all three species of Marlin. As the summer comes to an end, big Yellowfin Tuna begin to populate these waters, making this a prime spot for some excellent game fishing.

Head Hunter Charters can also take you reef fishing for huge Snappers, Yellowtail Kingfish, Morwong, and Flathead. Your trip can start from Ulladulla to Eden, and most ports in between, for a truly customised adventure. All full day charters include morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea.

Whether it be your first time fishing or you’re chasing a record, Head Hunter Charters will make sure you have an amazing time in these beautiful waters!
