What our clients have to say…
A really fantastic experience with plenty of catches. Fozie was great, very supportive and knew exactly where to go for all the action. Avery highly recommended fishing trip.
Fozies Fishing was a great adventure!!! Highly recommend this fishing experience. Great boat & quality equipment. The four men caught heaps of fish and enjoyed Robs company. Rob was so professional and helped everyone all the time. The boat was immaculate. Di was so helpful on organising the adventure. Ray, Darryl, Jordan & Blake.
Thanks for another great day out. Despite the monster cobia that took over and hour off our fishing time, the 3 of us took home 29 fish and threw as many back. Love your work.
Brilliant afternoon with Fozie! We caught many fish, did some whale and dolphin spotting and had a lotta laughs. Thoroughly recommend Fozies if you’re looking for a great value for money fishing trip.
My husband and son have been out with Fozie a few times now and always have a great time. He always puts them on good fish and they have never come back without a nice esky full of fish. Whenever thry’re looking to go out, we always choose Fozie and would have no hesitation in…
Had a wonderful day. First class service and fishing. Wonderful and fun. So worthwhile and excellent character. One happy Canadian! Doug Friedley
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.
Please note that we follow the safety rule of 2m swell, and or 20 knot winds. We will cancel the charter for everyone’s safety if these conditions are reached.
No Alcohol is permitted onboard.
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 the Ballina Marina.
Pick up for your next Fozie’s Adventure is at the Boat Harbour at the end of Boat Harbour Road, West Ballina
