Tory M Fishing Charters is a well-established local charter service based in the eastern part of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Covering inshore areas including the Eastern Cove and American River, this owner-operated coastal charter gives a personal touch to local fishing.

During your trip you will be fishing aboard a 21’ Roberts Longboat that offers stability and weather protection, in addition to providing a comfortable and enjoyable experience on the water. The boat is fitted with a GPS system, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio to put you in the best fishing spots, and it features a toilet for your comfort.

Tory M Fishing Charters specialize in bottom fishing with light tackle. The species they target are King George Whitings, Snappers, Sharks and Trevallies. All required equipment is provided to you by the trusty crew. They are more than happy to help you and if necessary teach you the ins-and-outs of fishing in the waters south of Australia.

Captain Jason encourages anglers to bring their children, so they can get hooked at a young age. A fishing license is not provided by this charter. The vessel is disabled accessible and the charter invites all anglers to come join them in a fantastic Southern fishing adventure!

About the Captain

Jason Stevens
Kangaroo Island, South Australia, Australia
Member since July 2016

Captain James Stevens started his maritime career by farming oysters in an eastern cove of the American river, right here on Kangaroo Island. Afterwards, he deepened his skillset by managing Ferguson Australia for 6 years, processing scale fish and live rock lobster. Capt. James said that if there's one man he'd like to thank for passing on the vast knowledge of local waters he has, it would be Scratchy (Philip Connell), James's father-in-law. Captain James is eager to get on the blue with you, and give you a hand in catching your dream fish!

We had a good half day trip. Jason is really relaxed and easy going and it makes you feel like you’re out with a mate for a fish.
The only thing I’d say was a bit of an issue is the directions to the boat. We circled American River quite a few times trying to find the location. The google map wasn’t too much help because there isn’t a street number on the website and the street is quite long and whenever we arrived at the jetty it kept telling us we weren’t at the right place. Maybe signage at the jetty going forward would be helpful too.

Captain Shane was great. A real salty hardworking seaman. Big deck fished our party of four perfectly. Bait and cooler provided. We caught Whiting, Squid, flathead and Trevaly in good numbers. Tommy Ruff too. Fun day on a solid charter.
