Charter Fishing Trips Sydney: What You Need To Know

To get the most out of our charter fishing tours in Sydney, there are a few bits and pieces it pays to know.

What to Bring

Fishing is a great deal more fun if you’re well-prepared.

Here is a suggested check list of items to bring on your fishing trip:

  • Warm clothing – it can get cold at sea even though warm on land
  • Wet weather gear you never know when it may rain
  • Your camera to record that happy snap of that big fish
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Lunch and nibbles
  • Drinks: soft drink, bottled water and of course your beers
  • Your favourite rod and reel if you wish (Note: Our price includes the provision of all tackle for the day including rods and reels suitable for the tasks of the day.)

Our Boats

Both our deep sea fishing vessels were specifically built as charter boats for fishing Sydney’s coastal waters and to fulfil the requirements of deep sea off-shore fishing anglers. The vessels are fitted with the latest electronic equipment including satellite GPS navigation plotters, sonar and radar. The vessels conform to USL (Universal Shipping Law) codes and carry all required safety equipment including life rafts and the latest satellite detectable emergency 406mhz locator beacons.

Our Skippers

For our day fishing trips, our skippers are Masters, Coxswains and Marine Engineers. All hold Marine Radio Operator Licences and First Aid qualified. They are recognised by the IGFA (International game Fishing Association) for their professional and ethical approach to fishing. Together they have secured in excess of sixty five angling records including twelve IGFA world records.

Crew

On all fishing charter trips from Sydney the vessel carries a deckhand. They are First-Aid qualified and are experienced fishermen in their own right. They will help with tackle, fish handling and will assist by cleaning your catch.
