With world-famous fish at your fingertips, the angling action on offer around Australia’s Urangan is seriously addictive. Come aboard Get Hooked Fishing Charters and "get hooked" on these bountiful waters!

If catching fish is at the top of your to-do list, then make sure a visit to Get Hooked Fishing Charters is your number one priority. With hundreds of trips under their belts, they’ll get you to where the fish are biting – and with over 30 years of experience on these waters, they have a wealth of knowledge of the best hotspots.

Your captain will take you out to cast your line for Cobia, as well as Flathead, Little Tunny, Black Marlin, and Queenfish. Whatever your target, and no matter whether you’re a hard-core fisherman or a newbie, a trip with Get Hooked Fishing Charters will see you bringing fish into the box in no time.

Your trip will take place on a comfortable and spacious 22’ Southwind vessel, which has plenty of room for up to 4 people. Combining the shade of a T-top and the maneuverability of a center console, the boat is the perfect base for your fishing excursion. Step aboard, grab an ice-cold drink (soft drinks and water provided) and get ready to reel in some fish.

Your vessel is also decked out with all the necessary navigational and safety gear, meaning you’ll get on the fish in no time, and will also be treated to a secure and stable ride. There are also onboard outriggers to cover plenty of ground when trolling for your catch.

Your captain will make sure you’re armed with top-fishing gear, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Fly fishing equipment is also available for groups of 3 or below – if you’d like to test your skills using this technique, just let your captain know.

Get Hooked Fishing Charters aims to give each and every customer the best day out on the water that they’ve ever had. Don’t come back with an empty Esky: hop aboard today!

I've had over 35 years of fishing experience, exploring waters all around this beautiful country. The huge variety of tropical and coldwater species around the Hervey Bay waters can blow your mind! I love the charter side of fishing, teaching people new and exciting ways to cast a line, and seeing the happiness of other people catching fish: the look on people's faces when they catch their first fish or a bigger fish than they had ever dreamed of is one of the reasons I do this. It's also the reason we go the extra mile to get our customers onto the best fishing around, giving them the chance to land that once in a lifetime fish and a full bag of species. We run the 6.8 meter southwind center console that gives our clients the space too relax and fish all the way around the boat. Powered by the 2020 model 90hp 4stroke Yamaha. Gives reliability and power for the safety when needed. Also as the environment is number 1 it’s the cleanest cheapest motor on the market.
