My 14 year old son, one of his mates and I had a fantastic day; plenty of fish and a really easy going time.  Good mix of experiences too; kept the boys excitement up.  Plus, the weather much better offshore than in at home in the drizzle; Fozie was spot on there. 5 stars…

Great day out fishing with an excellent skipper who knew how to look after his customers we really enjoyed our experience with Fozies Fishing Adventures. Caught lots of fish and added bonus saw lots of whales up close. will tell others when around Ballina come fishing with Fozie’s.

Bruce Savage – 24th March 2019

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 again, my arms were tired and my grin was huge, I’d go out with this guy again for sure, absolutely sensational.

Kevin Russell – 14th June 2019

Went out with Rob today, fantastic day! Great boat with plenty of space and top notch gear, caught heaps, in fact too many we have to give some away.  He always kept us on top of the fish, and assisted us all to keep us continually in the water. Get on his boat you’ll regret it if you don’t. Ballina Byron Fishing Adventures Gallery – Apr, May, & Jun 2019

After being disappointed on another local charter Rob put us on the fish all day, PB snapper 8.4kg and more fish than we could ever eat convinced me to be a repeat customer another amazing session today. Thanks Rob brilliant skipper.

Alan Bertacco

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 evening. Don’t bother researching other operators, Fozie’s your man. Alan Bertacco – Box Hill VIC.

My girlfriend and I booked with Fozie’s fishing adventures as we were staying in Byron and it was so much fun! Rob was such a great host and very knowledgeable about fishing and the local area and he did his best to help us catch as many fish as possible. Between the two of us we took home 12 fish. We also got to see some dolphins along the way which really topped our day. The boat is clean and comfortable, there is a toilet on board and tea and coffee which was a bonus.

Kira – December 2018

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 and commercial operators. Thanks so much Rob and Di. They had such a great time and are still talking about what an awesome experience they had with you. Warm regards.

Sarah L – 5th December 2019

Had an absolute blast with Fozies Fishing Charter!  Went out with my partner and two of our friends, two other guys were on the boat with us.  Fozie made it so easy for us to catch fish, took us out about 8K offshore where we were lucky enough to be the only boat around.  He baited our lines every time  we needed,  helped us when we had a big fish on the line if we wished, always made us laugh!  Very professionally run, Di on the phone was great and prompt in returning calls and correspondence regarding if the charter was going out or not.  We had the most perfect conditions and even caught a massive 12kg Jewfish and  3kg Maori Cod, amongst other cool fish.  Would definitely go again – thanks Fozie for making it so fun!

Jody & William – 14th July 2018

Fantastic day of fishing with a an awesome host (Fozie) who shared some great tips & had us pulling in fish all day. Would thoroughly recommend & we’ll be back again.Jody, William & fellow fishing partners.

Terry Stuart – 24th October 2019

Just had our first trip with Fozies and it will not be our last.  Had a great day, met new people and caught fish.  Fozie (Rob) does a fantastic job as skipper, deck hand, flight attendant and all round good guy, nothings too much trouble for him.  If there’s no bites then he quickly moves to another site.  The boat is great for the job, well maintained and SAFETY on board is his priority.  Highly recommended and a well run organisation.  Give them a try.  Cheers Terry Stuart

Tsjerk Terpstra – 25th July 2019

Great value for money! Was able to catch the fish I only knew from TV in the Netherlands. Robert is a great guy to have as Captain. Very knowledgeable and helpful!

Simon Barry

Rob (skipper) always puts you on the fish! From snapper, pearls, bluespot, flathead, and jewfish in the winter to marlin, dolphin fish and kingies in the summer, Rob really knows how to catch all year round. Very comfortable boat and very flexible fishing techniques and booking – small groups and large. I highly recommend Fozie’s for that chance to catch the fish of a lifetime, last year on a 7″ soft plastic – awesome fish! Thanks Fozie’s, see you in 2019!
