Offshore Reef Fishing
Offshore reef fishing is a perfect day out for a family or small social group.
You will use light tackle to fish for a wide variety of fish species while you relax
and enjoy the experience of a day on the water in a safe and comfortable boat.
Snapper, kingfish, mulloway, trevally, sea bream and flathead are only some of the
superb table fish that you can catch with expert guidance and tuition by Captain John Wright.
There is nothing like a feed of fresh fish that you have caught yourself!
Of course, we don't even have to go offshore to the open ocean
- there are still plenty of fish to be found if you prefer to stay inside the bay.
Light Game and Sport Fishing
Deepwater fishing with a lot of the excitement of big game fishing but not quite so much hard work! If you are keen fishos looking for a bit of extra fun this could be the trip for you.
You might spend time trolling for tuna, mahi mahi and other acrobatic fish; you might be deepwater jigging for kingfish; bait fishing around the local FADs (Fish Aggregating Devices), or a combination of these.
Captain John has a lot of options and will decide on the best plan according to the season and conditions on the day.
Big Game Fishing
Blue water game fishing off Sydney, on the east coast of Australia, can be a relaxing day out - if you're unlucky. It can also be an adrenaline charged day of hope, frustration , jubilation, and pure excitement.
Picture yourself hanging onto a rod that is bent, bucking and about to tear itself out of your grip, while you try to control twice your own weight of pure muscle at the other end of a thin nylon line. Experience the thrill of seeing a dancing, tailwalking dynamo rise out the ocean and become airborne within metres of the boat.
Feel an underwater express train strip 500 metres of line off your reel in seconds. Pump and wind to the point of exhaustion recovering line metre by tortured metre then, when you think the fight is over, watch in horror as your line peels out once more, crackling under the strain.
See yourself, after a battle lasting an hour or more, bringing a magnificent wild creature to the boat, patting it goodbye and seeing it swim away strongly - when you feel like you've been run over by a truck. That's marlin fishing.
From January to April we chase Black Marlin that follow a warm, cobalt-blue current down the east coast of Australia. Striped Marlin are also caught in this warm water, arriving and leaving a month or so earlier than the blacks. The mighty Pacific Blue Marlin is not as fussy about water temperature, so can be found most of the year. There is always a chance of hooking up a 'big blue'!
