Background
Hi I'm Capt Andre I have been operating my fishing charters from ST Kilda Pier for 11 years and chartering for a total of 16 years. I want to share with my guests an awesome fishing experience and share my stories from a life time at sea. As a kid I spent all my time fishing with dad at sea in Western Port Bay and along the coast of Victoria. As a young man I went to sea working on off shore trawlers around Australia. I love talking about my life time of fishing experiences and my greatest passion is watching my customer catch fish. I do whatever it takes to get you a fish to take home. I promise to look after you board, I'll cook your catch or clean it up for you to take home and cook you up some lunch.
Techniques
I just love salt water fishing. Every day on the boat is a new experience - not one day is like the last. The scenery changes every day and the fishing does too. I get more enjoyment watching others catch there first fish or the best fish ever. That why I get out of bed each morning at 4am. I keep my boat clean neat and very very friendly. I don't tolerate bad spirited fisherman.

Too many fishermen on the boat had 15 but 12 only would have made a difference 10 would have been a pleasurable experience and would have been happy to pay a little bit more.

Awesome mate, thanks for valuable feedback. WE always like to take on valuable feedback and grow from the experiences of others. Hope to see you again soon, with a few less anglers in the mix.

Went fishing on Thursday, November 17, 2016

Was a windy day with wind from north. First spot we stopped at was no good as anchor would not hold. Stopped at three spots with limited success at each. I caught one small non-legal snapper but had only a few bites in total. About half of the 15 people had no bites at all. Di not catch a king George whiting I had hoped to catch.
