Sunny Coast Fishing Charters

Parkyn Parade
Mooloolaba QL, Australia

The Sunshine Coast is a Mecca for game and reef fishing. Get a taste of it with Sunny Coast Fishing Charters, who offer private charters that only need a minimum of three people cost to run. These charters are about you and what you want to do. With a maximum of five fishermen in a group, you can enjoy a hands-on service with everyone on the fishing charter receiving individual attention from the crew.

You will be fishing aboard a 24 ft Noosa Cat that travels quickly to the fishing grounds. With a cruising speed of 24 knots, the boat travels twice as fast as most of the bigger boats. As the famous Barwon banks are located 24 nautical miles away,your total travel time will be halved compared to fishing with a larger boat.

During your trip you can choose between bottom fishing, micro jigging, game fishing, and/or light tackle fishing - it all depends on how you and your group want to spend your day. Top of the range fishing equipment is supplied, although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

You could be fishing with live baits, dead baits, lures, flies, and slugs, and will primarily be using braided line - this is more sensitive and less resistant to the current run, which means you can extend your fishing time and will have a higher chance of landing bigger fish. You won’t usually find this on larger boats, as they use the cheaper and easier-to-untangle mono line that reduces the bite sensation and ultimately the number of bites you will receive.

When bottom fishing in the region your potential catches could include great-tasting species such as Snapper, Pearl Perch, Cod, Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Amberjack, Kingfish, Cobia and more. Otherwise, troll for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, and Sailfish, or fly fish for Tuna, Sailfish, and Marlin.

As well as providing you with everything you need to catch fish, Sunny Coast Fishing Charters believe in making your fishing trip fun and they supply snacks and drinks, as well as lunch on longer trips.

Thanks Ben great to have u guys out.
Doing the half day five hour trips can be tough on some days as u can be fishing between tide changes and this is generally not conducive to good fishing.
We had a great day catching moari cod and pearlies and even a happy moment.
Great bunch of guys thanks again Ben.

Rob did all he could to find us fish even extending our time.  The boat was a comfortable ride and he was very knowledgeable with a lot of experience.  We even got a whale watching tour thrown into boot.  It was a fantastic day that we all enjoyed as he was an easy going guy,  would go out fishing with him again when back in the sunshine coast.
