Forster Fishing - Margaret Rose

69/75 Little St
Forster NS, Australia

Forster Fishing Charters offers private and shared fishing trips around the mid north coast of NSW. Based in Forster, Capt. Robbie and his crew have long been in the charter business. Whether you’re looking for reef, game or sports fishing, this is the charter to consider! Head out and go target Mahi Mahi, Flathead, John Dory, and many more.

You will be fishing from a 38’ Randell flybridge boat. Margaret Rose is powered by a 375 HP Cat 3208 engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 10 knots. What’s really great about the boat is the space it offers. Up to 13 people can come along and still have ample space to fish comfortably.

The vessel is fitted with the navigational electronics, and stores the safety equipment. You will find a toilet, galley, and a live bait well. The boat is rigged with outriggers, and has a flybridge.

Once onboard, you will get rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures. The captain and his first mate will serve water, soft drinks, snacks, and lunch. You won’t need a fishing license. If you’d like, the crew can clean and fillet your catch.

You should bring sunblock, a cap in case it gets windy, and sunglasses. Having comfortable clothes on is a good idea. Make room in your backpack for a camera to get a good shot of your outing. If prone to seasickness, you may want to take medication before the trip.

So, what will you be doing? When you set out, you can try trolling or rather go bottom fishing. Heavy or light tackle, the crew has got you covered, so you can try out different techniques, and see what yield the best catch.

These waters are lucrative year round. It’s great for families, or larger parties who simply want to get out, have a go at fishing. Book your spot, and have a nice time on the waves.
