    Join me this year for a full day of fishing, targeting Snapper, Kahawai, Trevally, Gurnard, John Dory, and, if lucky, Kingfish. We have rods and bait, pilchard and squid normally. Just bring your lunch or snacks, and have a great day on the water. We don't have a BBQ and have always found a cut lunch doesn't take to much time away from fishing. Most of the time, we travel out to search for the fish this is a great time to sit and have a tea or coffee and snack and chat.

I love the wildlife, so I dive when I can and fish as much as possible. I have skippered many Charter Vessels since "Riko Riko", both big and small, but she has been in my care for 12 years now and I'm still improving in places. Old is Gold and Wood is Good, and the fish seem to love swimming around her, that's for sure.
