Were due to go out on Saturday, but the weather was not in our favour, we rescheduled for Sunday to be honest we were'nt exspecting to catch much the fishing reports were not good.
Six of us whent out from Carrum and within 10min we were hooked up with an amazing red of about 4.5 kgs we fished for 5 hours and landed 18 fish between us landed 10 of which were over 3kgs the largest was approx 6kgs.
Steve and Jay kept us on the fish for the entire charter thanks guys the best fishing trip to date will see if we can beat it next year.

3 is on the low side for us. Importantly you had a good time. Definitely check us out again this year and try and beat our record.

Took some mates and clients out for some fun on water, targeting snapper.
Steve and Jay were excellent guides, finding the snapper when ALL the other charter boats failed to land a single fish. Everyone had a great time and their fishing knowledge is excellent.

Will be back, hopefully Tuna next time.

Paid for 5 hrs and lost 45 mins because the owner had to re fuel. No discount offered and we didn't get a fishing experience. Basically paid to sit and watch the owner fish.Very poor customer service.Never again.

Hi Len, that's strange. We have a tank large enough not to have to refuel. We don't generally offer discounts. Also we stand back once the lines are in the water and let you reel in the fish. Are you sure you got the right charter?
