Being a small size boat, it is very easy to customize your time exactly how you want. Just let us know when you book, please. The captain will have snacks and drinks available on board.

You’ll be dropping lines from a 20’ Center console that can carry up to 5 passengers. It comes with outriggers, downriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Rods, reels, and tackle are covered by the charter. Live bait is included, but it’s good to ask about this, so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I’ve been fishing my whole life from the rocks in Mornington to the Goulburn River around Seymour, off the Jetty in Glenelg, 'till I was old enough to drive when I first came to Queensland to fish around the mouth of the Don River. Fishing is my life, and I love to share my knowledge with people every day.
