14th January 2019
Dolphin Fish to the South, Snapper on the Northern grounds.
Year started of slow, cancelled a number of trips due to bad weather, turned the corner now and the fishing been great.

22nd December 2018
Havernt fished a lot this month, unfavourable weather.
For the few days we have fished, Dolphin Fish have been plentifull.

26th November 2018
Ever wanted to stretch your arms, summer months, Marlin, Dolphin Fish, Wahoo, Mackerel, and Tuna to name a few may be found in our waters.
Trolling is not everyone’s cup of tea, typically we reef fish year round, but over the summer months there MAY BE / WILL BE the odd day where the East Coast current is running too hard to successfully fish the bottom.
On days we can’t fish the bottom, trolling may be our only option, rotating strike with our guests. (keep this in mind if booking over Christmas and into the New Year)
GAME FISHING on your wish list, get a group together and give us a call. (private charters from as little as $1960.00 for max 8 guests)
Full day reef fishing for individuals $245.00
For charter info and bookings please phone Gary and Noelle 3209 4576

September is typically a good month for reef fishing in our waters.
However, we have had a couple of slow days in late August, picking up a little for Fathers day.
When it comes to fishing there will be days with more fishing than catching, and theres nothing that can be done about it.

19th August 2018 
Fantastic couple of days sunny skies, flat seas and Whales all around.
Friday  -  Snapper, Pearl Perch and a good bite of Teraglin made the day, not a good fighting fish, but excellent eating.
Saturday -  south to the Cathedrals couldn’t  get a bite so moved further south (good views of Gold Coast high rises) same deal.

Pearl Perch
31st December 2017
It's been a great 2017, Snapper down on quality, but in good numbers.
Still catching some good reef fish when conditions allow. Typically we reef fish year round on shared charters, but during the summer months, the East Coast Current will, at times, be strong and pushing hard ashore,. On days like this our best option will be to deploy troll lines, Save your dollars till winter if trolling is not for you. When trolling, strike is rotated and fish shared amongst the boat where practical
Looking forward to the new year, tight lines and stay safe.
Cheer Gary and Noelle

4th April 2017
Time to pack, we're taking a break, will be checking out the fisheries off Florida's coast, Mexico and Alaska. Of special interest the Broadbill fishery off Florida, purchased a couple of night time lures some time back, so hoping to get some tips on the best methods. The waters off Florida Keys have produced Broadbill on the troll at night and bait fishing day and night.
Probably not the demand for charters in Brisbane, but its on my bucket list to catch one in our local waters. Have caught Broadbill in the past on commercial gear and there's been some captures on rod and reel in our southern states.
Back on deck for Snapper season early May, Jodie will be manning the phones.

20th March 2017
The weekend forecast was full of gloom and doom, by late Friday the low had slipped to the South. Too late for Saturdays trip, but great conditions today. Pan sized Snapper on the 33s until the current picked up, forced in close (29s), fishing was patchy with a lot of juvenile fish, all good for the future.

12th March 2017
Out with the old and in with the new.
The boys at Rogers and Lough have been busy the last couple of weeks fitting a pair of new Cummins engines, big effort to get us in the water for the weekend. More power, speed and performance equals more fishing time for our guests.
Covered a lot of ground this weekend, our best bite was along the 29s, pan sized Snapper, Wrasse, Jew and Venus Tusk Fish. Battled a small Black Marlin on light gear for around half hour today. The fish was always going to win

12th February 2017

Strong currents this month may make reef hard work. 
Trolling may be your best option, but does require patients.
