Lucky Strike Charters

Bayview Street
Runaway Bay QL, Australia

Lucky Strike Charters operate out of Gold Coast, Queensland and cater to anglers who want to catch big game fish and those who just want to catch some dinner. They have been operating for over 20 years in the area, and know it like the back of their hands. They are a friendly crew who just want to have fun on the water and provide you an unforgettable adventure.

You will be able to take offshore fishing trips using the provided fishing gear, lures, and live baits. Your catch can range from something small and tasty like Snapper, or go for big game like Blue Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna. These guys will make sure you get what you’re after.

Lucky Strike Charters love taking groups out and will do everything they can to make each trip special, and make sure you stay hooked up all day long. The fishing will take place aboard a 34 foot Blackwatch offshore sport fishing boat, powered by two 350 HP engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots.

The vessel is equipped with all the safety and electronics you may need. It contains a toilet a kitchen with a fridge, and a flybridge you can use for fishing as well as sightseeing. You can use the outriggers to target even more fish, and the first mate will teach you anything you need to know about the boat’s equipment and how to best utilise it.

Lucky Strike Charters are very child friendly and encourage parents to bring children along in order to teach them about the fish and the importance of preserving the local fisheries.

The experienced and friendly crew will clean and fillet your catch upon return to the dock so you can take it home for a nice meal.
