East Coast Angling takes you fishing around some of the best fishing locations in the world. From honey holes around the Great Barrier Reef teeming with fish to offshore hot spots where you can get Black Marlin, this crew will give you the trip of a lifetime.

Come chase GTs and Spanish Mackerel offshore, or head to Lizard Island and camp at the base, soaking in the sun and fishing for Nannygai and Coral Trout. If you’re more adventurous head to the Ribbon Reefs and take on Black Marlin. You will get to try a number of fishing techniques and styles, including jigging, trolling, fly fishing, as well as light tackle, topwater casting, fishing with soft plastics – and the list goes on. The captain will make sure you get a bang for your buck and have fun while you’re at it.

Capt. Nick has been in the charter business since he was 18. He has skippered sportfishing and diving boats around South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, and Mozambique, only to move to skippering boats across the Atlantic. His fishing trips have seen him travel to over 20 countries, trying various fishing techniques. He loves sportfishing and founded East Coast Angling for that reason. He will share his passion with you and make sure you have an unforgettable day on the water.

Your vessel for the day is a 32’ custom-built Andros center console. She is powered by twin 300 HP Yamahas and can reach the speeds of up to 60 knots. The boat was customized to give you flexibility, space, and comfort. There is an ice box onboard, as well as a toilet, rod holders, live well, outriggers, and downriggers. Plus, the vessel is equipped with Garmin navigational equipment. She can accommodate up to four people, though in some cases an additional angler can come along.

The rates include fishing gear, lunch, water, and you don’t need a fishing license. Pack a camera, sunblock, a hat, sunglasses, and Dramamine in case of seasickness.

Make sure to book a spot on time. Invite your friends and come have a blast!
