What our clients have to say…
Great day out! Fozie was a legend, very helpful, knowledgeable and looked after us in every way possible form safety to baiting up our lines and giving hints and tricks. We visited lots of different spots and were able to catch more fish than we ever have before on a charter! Lots of laughs and…
This is the best fishing trip – knowledge of skipper is great, small group and lots of good fishing spots. Thoroughly recommend.
Had an amazing day catching 8 different species and lot of fish with a couple of friends! Awesome boat and skipper, thanks Rob for putting us onto the fish, as always.
Great day out this morning – we caught heaps (and returned more as we didn’t want to take more than we needed). Many different species, good advice and guidance from Fozie and overall well worth it.
Excellent day – Everything was perfect from start to finish. Thank you very much for the best fishing charter we’ve ever had, we loved it! Yes, it was our first, but it definitely won’t be the last. Wayne catching the biggest fish was a bonus! My husband, my Dad and my son’s will be back. Wayne can’t…
Experienced skipper with great local knowledge. Many options for fishing experiences.
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
