Sunny Coast Fishing Charters

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.

About the Captain

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!

Thanks Chantel
We caught lots of smaller fish. Wasn’t the greatest fishing day. We had two cracking fishing day leading up to this trip but it seems we can’t bang them everyday. We were expecting to see the whales but no show for them on the day. I had a great day with your family on the water. Sorry that exhausted everyone but we had a cracking day weather wise and it’s always great to have great people on the boat who enjoyed the conditions.
Best of luck in the future.

Had an awesome day out with Rob.  Caught so many fish my arms felt like lead from fatigue. Couldn’t stop fishing and catching so many fish. Rob is so knowledgable and thoughtful.  I highly recommend this trip. My 11 year old loved every minute and caught heaps of fish.  Such a great day.
