Hot Fishing Charters -Tru-Dee-V

Bermagui Harbour
Bermagui NS, Australia

Hot Fishing Charters runs offshore game and sport fishing charters in the waters off Bermagui, NSW. Bermagui is the perfect place to go for some amazing offshore adventures, as it boasts a very short run of just around 13 miles out to the continental shelf, meaning you waste no time getting your gear in the water.

Hot Fishing Charters’ vessel, the “Tru Dee-V” is a 48 ft Randell sportfisherman powered by twin 400HP Caterpillar engines which were added along with a complete overhaul of the propulsion systems in 2013. She has plenty of space aboard for up to 14 anglers, and comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a full spread of outriggers and centreriggers, a fighting chair for battling those blue water beasts, a livewell full of the freshest bait, and even twin tuna tubes for those looking to give themselves the best chance of landing a real monster! The vessel also boasts a comfortable interior complete with a galley, head and cabin as well as the all-important flybridge for lounging between bites.

Hot Fishing Charters specialises big game fishing for Marlin or Tuna, depending on what is in season. They use nothing but the best gear to catch nothing but the best fish, and offer a selection of fishing techniques including a choice of light and heavy tackle, and set-ups for trolling, spinning, jigging, popping and kite fishing to make sure you don’t just land the fish of your dreams, but you land it your way!

All Hot Fishing Charters come with live bait, licences, snacks, drinks, and a cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take away at the end of the day. Catering can also be arranged upon request.
