What our clients have to say…
As Unit Commander of Marine Rescue Evans Head it was a pleasant surprise when Rob and Di kindly donated a fishing trip for four of our members. Not only did they have a great time and catch a good feed of fish each, they also had the opportunity to learn more about the local coastline…
Great fishing experience. Heaps of fish. Very knowledgeable local guide. Definitely going again
One of the best days out fishing I’ve had off the mainland. Great conditions, good fishing, great host. Planning to do it again!
Fozie clearly knows his stuff. A really good fella who took us to the spots he knows will get you results. The sea was a bit lumpy when we went out but he kept us busy with a great catch at the end of the morning, and a great fresh fish feed for all that…
Had a great day of fishing, highly recommend.
My brother and husband went out fishing this morning had the best time catching plenty of fish and seeing lots of dolphins and enjoying the owners knowledge. Thank you
All you need is loose comfortable clothing, a jumper / raincoat depending on the day. Sunscreen and a hat and any food you may like to nibble on. A Great attitude is always welcome for your fishing adventure.
Alcohol is permitted BYO; we ask that you drink responsibly and not put yourself and others on the boat in any danger.
Sea sickness is a chance to those who don’t go to sea very often. We recommend you take a seasick tablet 1 hour before boarding the boat and another before we leave port. Various brands of tablets and old wive’s tales on the prevention of seasickness are out there, we find the use of Kwells to be the most consistent performer. I found the first 30 years the hardest to get over seasickness, but it gets considerably easier after that.
We DO NOT CLEAN YOUR CATCH; we feel this is part of the fishing adventure experience. We will ice down the fish caught and distribute them to you upon arrival back at port. Bring a suitable esky to take home your fish as well as a fish scaler / knife to clean your catch. There are excellent fish cleaning facilities adjacent to both Ballina and Evans Head Marinas.
Pick up for your next Fozie’s Adventure is at the Boat Harbour at the end of Boat Harbour Road, West Ballina
