Lucky Strike Charters

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’ve been operating for over 20 years in the area, and know these waters 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.

Indulge in an offshore fishing trip, using the latest fishing gear, lures, and live baits, and go after some monster fish. Your catch can range from something small and tasty like Snapper, or go for big game beauties like Blue Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna. Let your crew know what tickles your fancy, and they’ll make sure you get what you’re after.

Step aboard the 34’ Blackwatch offshore sportfishing vessel, and enter a life of luxury. Powered by two 350 HP engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots, she’ll get you to the productive fishing grounds in no time.

She comes equipped with all the newest electronics and safety equipment, and also boasts a toilet, kitchen with a fridge, and a flybridge for you to use for fishing as well as sightseeing. Make yourself at home and settle in for a thrilling day.

When it comes to the fishing, you’ll have the outriggers at your mercy 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 utilize it. Get ready for a fishing adventure like never before in the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean and land the fish of a lifetime.

Children of all ages are welcome aboard, and Lucky Strike Charters encourages parents to bring children along in order to teach them about the fish and the importance of preserving the local fisheries.

At the end of your trip, the dedicated crew will clean and fillet your catch to take home, so all you need to do is sit back and wait for a delicious dinner when you get back to shore. Make the most of QLD’s prime fishing grounds, and get your fish on!
