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.

Purchased half day trip for Grandson b/day , he took along a mate who unfortunately spent the time being sea sick, but was looked after by the crew.
All in all good time was had, caught 3 Jew fish.

I enjoyed myself allot today, even know i was really sea sick for half of my outin. I still managed to boat a nice fish and ended up taking two nice spotted makerel home. The boat was great and the bearded fella driving the boat boat most the time was really chilled out to talk to. The gear was in great working order and easy to use. I really didnt know what i was in for being my first ever charter, but the staff were great at giving me instructions and demonstrating how to be succesfull in boating some fish. Highly reccomend heading out with this charter crew.

I sent two of my visitors from Norway out for the half day trip. They had a fantastic day, even if it was only tailor on the line for them. Would have liked them to get the “big” one as they are used to getting quite sizeable cod and coalfish at home.

Great boat, great equipment, plenty of fish caught and we even saw some whales.  So on the whole we had a great time, thought the trip was great value and would happily do it again. 

The only criticism was that the crew lacked a little bit of personality and engagement.  Seemed a bit stressed/rushed and were pretty light on communication. 

Fileting (rather than just gutting) the fish would have been helpful and being warned about the bar crossing (with suggestion of wearing life jackets) would have been good too. 

Generally we were happy customers and with a little more effort and attention to detail these guys would be perfect.

We had the most enjoyable time with chris and Dylan catching a lot of fish.  Dylan was very helpful in untangling lines and unhooking the fish and throwing back the under sized ones. The boat was kept clean the whole time and the fishing experience was fantastic. Thanks to both chris and Dylan for a wonderful day of fishing

Fantastic day!! Booked a half day with my brother in law and couldn’t be happier. Tailor, bream, trevally tuna and cobia all landed. Chris and Beau were great and accommodated Nan, a 93 y.o passenger who was a star fighting a big Cobia. I landed a 28kg Cobia!!! and my brother in law at least 15 tailor and other fish. Great day on the water.

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

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.

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!
