Main Beach, Australia

Background
Fishing chartering runs in the family. Making people happy with good fish (or just fishing in general) makes me happy.
Techniques
Preffered technique is to use many techniques at the same time. Liveys, dead baits, float baits and lures/jigs, multiple of all types should be set at multiple levels. Full coverage to find the fish on the day is key at least to start with, once you've found one at a certain depth, focus a little more there.

Great value and experience - young Jono from WA was stoked with his mack tuna - his biggest fish ever! Disappointing that some of the guests chose to smoke and discard butts overboard. But that did not detract too much from an overall memorable trip and effort from Chris and crew. Will be back!

Took my seven year old son for his first charter. Was quite rough but that was forgotten quickly when we (he) started pulling in lots of trad Jew and tailor. Didn’t get the big one but were happy to be busy pulling in lots of food size fish. Would recommend sea sickness tablets if it’s going to be rough. We took them and didn’t get sick but a couple of people didn’t take them and guess what….didn’t seem to enjoy the trip too much

It was a good trip even though the fish were thin.
I would go again but in the morning

Hey Simon, thanks for coming and for the review. I see the crew scored lower than the boat and overall, can I get some feed back on that by any chance? Love to improve that aspect! Cheers! Chris

Meeting location was difficult and far for us as we had to get there by bus. Fishing was fine but size of fish was small and no snapper or pearl perch , mostly tregalin and flathead .

Thanks for the review mate. Departure location isn’t the greatest currently, our normal jetty is much better it’s just having work completed by council on it. Thanks for coming!

I had a great trip aboard Avenger Gold Coast Fishing Charters. Everyone on the boat caught plenty of fish to take home. Staff were extremely helpful and easy going. I really enjoyed my experience today and will be boarding again in the future to hopefully catch even more fish. I would totally recommend people jump on board with these guys!

Hi tracey, any comments for the trip for the trip
That you joined us recently? I remember you and your partner, wasn’t a great morning fishing, we did try hard to get fish the the high boat traffic conditions that day, didn’t have much luck, that’s fishing. Any comments much appreciated, happy to open a dialogue and try to fix whatever went wrong on that trip, maybe get you back on for another go at it! Cheers. Chris.

Chris was great. He gave good clear instructions. He was passionate about fishing and got excited when we caught the Kobia. This all added to the experience. He was also let down by his crewman not turning up but took it in his stride and stayed relaxed.

Thanks mate much appreciated! See you again hopefully. My full time decky decided he was quitting the night before but told no one. Apologies for that, it was a strange way to go about it after 2.5 years. Cheers. Chris.

Excellent value, great crew. A little crowded at times but still a great morning out. Some hidden value in the morning trip if you ask the skipper nicely.

Our group of 7 were greeted by the captain and explained all about our trip. We were set up with baited rods and given really good advice on how to go about fishing…ideal for the novice as well as the pro!...I caught a great spanish mackerel which fed 10 of us later that night….bloody delicious!....Thanks for the trip!
