Sunny Coast Fishing Charters

(5) Just booked!
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.

I enjoy chartering and I enjoy people and this comes across in our reviews. My aim is to be the no.1 charter on the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland. I have done game, reef and barramundi fishing for years and move to the Sunshine Coast in 2013. I worked for a year as a skipper on a local charter boat to get the feel for the area. I could see the failings of the big boat company I worked for and they had no regard for customers and therefore got no repeat business. The also didn't care about catching fish or people's expectation it was always about packing as many people on the boat and taking there money. I sadly see there business gradually becoming the dinasour of the past not keeping up with people's expectations. My business focus is on firstly customer service and secondly catching fish. We don't sell u a dream. We do our best to catch fish. You fish with upto date epuipment high quality spin gear and braid not antiquated reels and nylon. More effort more fish!

It was a wonderful experience. Captain was very patient with us even though we are a little late. He was a prankster and kept the atomosphere lively throughout. He is clearly very experienced, as we caught loads of fish and the other boats were following us around. 5 stars would re-visit.

We had a great morning on the water with Nick Nancy and Raymond. They had never been fishing before and it was hard for them at first to get co ordinated with the tackle.
What they lacked in skill they made up for enthusiasm. Anyway the day started a l little hazy and Raymond and Nancy hooked up som big fish straight up but they lost them. Not enough coaching on my part but we persevered and then Nancy hooked a big snapper. She struggled with the weight of this fish as she was only a slight build. Any way she bought it to the boat and was very happy with her first fish.
Raymond hooked his fish struggled got him to the boat and was also very happy
Nick at this stage was getting a little peeved. So I went through the process again and then he hooked up.  He started being the fish up and it got heavier we had the fish to the side of the boat the trevally was bitten in half. So we joked about nick being half way there to catching a full fish anyway he caught his fish not long after and was ecstatic. Nick was more concerned about being sick at first but once he overcome the fear of that he could concentrate on his fishing. Well done nick sandy and Raymond  
I’m sure next time they fish they should be a little more advanced.
