Boat Information

We have improved our vessel to cope with the growing influx of tourists to the Sunshine Coast. Our boat is moored at Mooloolaba, and capable of reaching the inner and outer reefs with ease.

The boat was built on the Sunshine Coast and initially used as a police and marine rescue boat. Our 31ft boat is 3.2 metres wide with a top speed of 30knts. The boat carries a Go Pro camera to capture your days fishing!

Tackle Inventory

Let’s face it. Your only as good as the tackle you carry as a charter boat operator. Our rods, reels, line and terminal tackle are highly specified. We test the tackle and maintain the rods and reels before we leave the dock to ensure it’s ready to use the moment we drop anchor. Our Sunshine Coast Fishing Charter uses top tackle.

Primarily we use Shimano overhead reels. Our main line is 30 lb and our leader is 60 lb. We have landing nets and gaffs on board for larger fish. If you require a new rig, our experienced deckhands will assist you.

Fishing Locations

It’s a common misnomer that you have to travel miles offshore to get the best fish. Time and time again our inshore locations have produced excellent table fish. Our Sunshine Coast Fishing Charter locations have been plotted to ensure you catch fish on your journey.

The Sunshine Coast is home to inner and outer reef systems. Approximately 40 miles offshore there is a trench where blue marlin are found and reef systems that produce a wide variety of quality reef fish. The trench drops past 100 metres. Inshore you will find coffee rock grounds where reef fish hole up ready to strike unsuspecting live bait.
