Fish Port Stephens Estuary Charters

If you want to unlock the secret of the waters of Port Stephens, give Captain Paul Lennon a try. He owns and operates Fish Port Stephens Estuary Charters and specializes in putting his clients on top of the hottest bite.

Enjoy these beautiful calm waters that are ever changing with just about every month seeing various species show up and another species leave. Depending on your personal preferences and the time of year, you will be able to throw a trap or two for Blue Swimmer or Mud Crab, get your hands on Longtail Tuna, Bream, Whiting, Mulloway, Luderick, Tailor, and Salmon.

Your boat for the day will be a 5.7m custom-built aluminum sport fishing vessel, designed specifically for your captain. The massive 2.5m beam and rear console design provide ample seating and casting space for up to 4 anglers. This is also a soft-riding fishing machine, which means that when the wind chops the bay up, you won’t be pounded all the way home!

Once on board, you will find top-notch rods, reels, and tackle, which you will be able to use on your day out. Lures will also be available, along with snacks and drinks for you and your party.

If you are looking for a fun-filled adventure on your next vacation, you have found the right place!
