OceanHunter SportsFishing

OceanHunter SportsFishing specialises in exhilarating sportfishing trips out of Clontarf, just a short drive from the centre of Sydney. Fishing aboard a purpose-built 7.4 meter (24ft) center console OceanMax charter boat, they provide the know-how and gear you need to get the most out of fishing in New South Wales.

The Ocean Hunter is powered by 250HP Four-stroke Yamaha outboard engine and has enough room to comfortably accommodate 5 passengers, plus the Skipper. The vessel is designed to get you to the productive offshore reefs fast, without sacrificing comfort or style.

Ocean Hunter Sportfishing is operated by two fishing veterans of the Sydney scene. They have been exploring the areas’ prolific waterways for a number of years, building up firsthand knowledge of the many game fish species, various locations and distinct fishing seasons. All of this expertise and local fishing intelligence is yours to benefit from on every trip.

Nick Martin, a.k.a the ‘Squid Guru of Sydney’, has been guiding full time for the last 8 years. Along with Captain Vic Levet, which has over 40 years of experience chasing big game off of Sydney’s shores, they know where the Big Kings live, and are determined to have you in prime hotspots at the right time, so that you are provided with the best opportunity of landing a trophy catch. OceanHunter Sportsfishing specialize in fishing for notorious Kingfish, which is an all-year activity, or the seasonal Mahi Mahi (in the summer months), Yellowtail, Marlin, sharks and many others.

To the OceanHunter crew, bait gathering is one of the often-overlooked keys to sportfishing success, which is why the day typically begins by securing baitfish as well as squid. After that, it’s onto the reefs, where your skill level or preferred style will determine whether you’ll be using live bait, stickbait, jigs, stickbait, softplastic or throw a fly.

"Got to love what u do". That's the motto of Skippers Nick Martin and Vic Levett, who between them have decades of experience fishing the productive waters around Sydney. Nick is known as Sydney's Squid guru, while Vic can think of nothing better than chasing a huge Kingfish from their secret hiding spots. Both guides have the local knowledge you need to get the most out of a fishing experience in and around Sydney.
