Deep End Fishing Charters

Join Deep End Fishing Charters for your newest adventure and explore some of the bluest waters off the coast of Queensland! With 40 years of experience under their belt, Skipper Glen and his experienced crew will take you to where the fish are biting, and make sure your trip is productive.

You’ll enjoy your day on the MV Gunbarrel, a 32’ Broadbill offshore sportfishing boat. The boat has a spacious, covered deck and a full range of gear for all types of fishing. Carrying a maximum of 7 anglers per trip, you’ll enjoy personalized service and plenty of space to fish. It’s a fast and reliable boat, which means you get more fishing time.

There’s a variety of trips you can choose from, depending on where you want to fish, and what you’d like to target. Skipper Glen will provide you with all rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait. If you’d like to get a taste of your catch after a productive day out, he’ll be happy to clean and bag your fish for you.

Hit the reefs and target Emperor, Pearl Perch, Snapper, and Jewfish, or head out to the deep sea for Dolphin Fish, Mackerel, Bonito, Yellowfin Tuna and other game fish in season. If you like calm water fishing, you can explore the Maloolah river and chase some of the many estuary species including Jewfish, Mangrove Jack, Flathead, Bream, and Whiting.

Kids are welcome on board, so come spend some quality family time in nature. There will be drinks, snacks, and lunch on board, so all you need to bring is some sunscreen, so you can relax under the hot Australian sun.

Come and have a great time in the deep waters of Queensland by booking Deep End Fishing Charters!
