He spent five years working onboard North Sea Rescue, and another five years working on lifeboats on the English Channel. In addition to his life long fishing experience, Capt. Colin has spent 32 years operating as a captain on Sydney Harbour. He started Deep Sea Charters in 2012, and since then has been running fishing trips.

Techniques
At Deep Sea Charters we run lures from Sydney out to local reefs, on the fishing grounds, and also on the way home. Once at the fishing grounds the crew gives a demonstration on fishing gear and techniques. Crew assist with fishing and measuring, cleaning and gutting. Clients fish throughout the charter. Clients keep all legal fish caught.
