Adventure Fishing Charters

The Wharf, Parkyn Parade, Mool…
Mooloolaba QL, Australia

Let Adventure Fishing Charters take you out on the pristine waters of Mooloolaba, on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast, for some exciting tailor-made fishing trips on the inshore or offshore waters. Skipper Carlo Marchese and crew are experienced locals who know where to find fish in even the more secluded or hard to access spots and are happy to personalise each trip to suit your wishes. Whether you are looking to hunt down a trophy fish, go trolling for a beast or bottom fishing for a variety of reef fish, they can teach you tricks to help you land your desired species.

“Stenella”, a stable 28’ Cougar Cat last restored in 2015, offers a large deck space with cover for up to eight anglers. The vessel will get you to the fishing action in no time with its twin 250HP Yamaha 4-stroke engines, and the latest Simrad navigational equipment, including two multi-function display screens with built-in CHIP Echo Sounder and StructureScan, HALO-3 Pulse Compression Radar, autopilot, and SonicHub. Other features include outriggers, live bait tank, toilet, shower, kitchen, stereo system, and TV.

All charters will give you the opportunity to try techniques such as fishing with light tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, drift fishing, handline, spinning and jigging, when targeting Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Cobia, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Snapper and more. The crew hates to lose fish, so they use only the best gear such as Shimano reels with Wilson Live Fibre rods, Tiara 30 WLRSA 2-speed reels for trolling, and Calcutta 700B and Talica reels for bottom fishing. You will be provided with equipment, lures, live bait, and catch cleaning and filleting.

The crew welcome beginner and expert anglers alike, and will provide you with a relaxing and enjoyable day while helping you to improve your fishing skills. For a special treat not offered elsewhere on the Sunshine Coast, take your catch to ‘See Restaurant’ for a delicious freshly prepared meal.

They are friendly and proffesional. Just missed few big ones because the fishing line wasn’t prepared for them! Not a complain, just the wrong line with the wrong fish at the wrong time!

Will surely go again with them next time, with powerful lines!
