Allie Hunter Charters

Explore the diverse and exciting fishing opportunities in the Sydney area with Allie Hunter Charters, a specialist game and sportfishing charter! Captain Hovig Aslanian has been fishing all his life, from Cairns in the north to Bermagui in the south. He’ll make sure your trip is fun and productive.

The 34’ Lightning custom boat features a center cab with a flybridge, surrounded by a waist-deep, walk-around deck. It is one of the fastest fishing vessels in Sydney Harbor, meaning you won’t waste most of your trip on getting to the fishing grounds.

At the same time, the walk-around deck makes Allie Hunter an ideal vessel for harbor cruising and sightseeing. The enclosed toilet means you can go far offshore without worrying about your personal comfort.

A variety of techniques and bait are used on board depending on the circumstance, ranging from jigging and popping to bottom fishing, with either live bait or artificial lures. The use of Shimano fishing equipment is included in the price. The crew is made up of experienced fishermen who have successfully participated in numerous tournaments, so you’re in good hands.

Allie Hunter Charters mainly focus on big game fishing, reef fishing, and sportfishing. Depending on the trip, you can expect to have a chance of catching Yellowfin Tuna, various Marlin species, Bonito, and Shark. Or you can target a variety of smaller species such as Snapper, Morwong, Trevally, Kingfish, Jewfish, and Leatherjacket.

Join Allie Hunter Charters and visit the beautiful waters around Sydney for your chance to catch some of the biggest prized fish!

From November to May we usually go for Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, while the cooler months see more Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito and Sharks. The skipper practices ‘tag and release’ for all species of Marlin, recording the angler, date, and location of capture. Up to 6 anglers can participate in these trips.

    Challenge yourself to catch as big a fish as possible on the lightest of lines. This half day trip mainly focuses on catching monster Mahi-mahi (also known as Dolphin fish). These spectacular, acrobatic fighters light up in beautiful shades of green and yellow when freshly caught. For the true sportfishing experience we usually use the 6kg line class, although you can use any line you wish. We use live bait, lures and soft plastics when targeting these fish.
