OceanHunter SportsFishing

OceanHunter SportsFishing specialises in exhilarating sportfishing trips out of Clontarf, just a short drive from the centre of Sydney. Skippers Nick Martin and Vic Levett have decades of experience fishing these productive waters, so they’ll make sure you have a great time.

On board their 24’ OceanMax center console boat, you’ll have everything you need to get the most out of fishing in New South Wales. The Ocean Hunter has 1 Suzuki 300 HP engine and 1 auxiliary engine of 25HP, with enough room to accommodate 4 anglers. The vessel is designed to get you to the productive offshore reefs fast, without sacrificing comfort or style.

Your skippers have been exploring the areas’ prolific waterways for many years, building up firsthand knowledge of the many game fish species, various locations and distinct fishing seasons. All this expertise and local fishing intelligence is yours to enjoy on every trip.

To the OceanHunter crew, bait gathering is one of the often overlooked keys to sportfishing success, which is why the day 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, stick bait, jigs, or throw a fly.

There’s a variety of species you can expect to reel in when it comes to fishing these rich waters. OceanHunter Sportsfishing specialises in fishing for notorious Kingfish, which is an all-year activity, or the seasonal Mahi Mahi (in the summer months). Other target species include Yellowtail, Marlin, Sharks, Flathead, Tuna, and Snapper.

Feel free to bring your kids on a fishing adventure, and spend the day making some amazing memories in nature. You’ll get snacks and drinks on board for your refreshment, but feel free to bring your own food. Make sure to bring some sun protection, and you’re ready to have some fun!

Join OceanHunter SportsFishing for your chance to explore the beautiful deep waters around Sydney!
