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…
What a great days fishing all round. I’ve been on plenty of charters that you jump off thinking I won’t be returning but definitely the opposite with Fozies, over a hundred fish caught with only 4 people fishing, great variety, Pearlies, Snapper, Tuskfish, Moses perch, Teraglin, Flathead, Pig fish and some cracking sized fish amongst…
Had a great time fishing with Fozies, expert navigation and fishing prowess ensuring we we’re catching fish all day, with plenty of laughs in between. A brilliant day in all!
Great fishing trip. A good bloke who knows his stuff and gave us the perfect charter. Easy going and great to get along with. Look forward to using him again. Thanks Fozie.
Experienced captain with great navigation skills. Literally caught fish at every spot we dropped. Highly recommend anglers prowling for a fun and eventful fishing trip. Worth every penny.
Along with mates, I have fished with Rob (Fozie) for a number of years. Every trip has been an action filled, fun day with plenty of good quality fish. Our trip out on the 15th of May 2019 was no different. Rob put us onto the fish straight away and every drift and drop was…
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
