What our clients have to say…
I’m a fishing guide but kept it quite. These guys are the people that fishing guides go out with to learn. Rob and Di are without trying the most lovely people and even if they were horrible I would still go fishing with them because Robs experience and classic vessel are just so rare. BEST…
Great day out today thanks
Highly recommend, Rob was a fantastic guide & they don’t overload the boat with people so it was a great comfortable day fishing.
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…
Booked on a trip last minute, for my 28th birthday. Great morning fishing, ended up catching 28 fish too. Fozie is a great guide and very knowledgeable. Will definitely come again when visiting Byron bay.
Hey went out with Fozie on the weekend, what a legend, every place he took us to we caught fish straight away, I’ve never had a fishing trip like it, we even had a marlin put a show on for us, magic. He baited our hooks, got the fish off and then we did it…
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
