Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters
Have you ever wanted to fish with the best Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters operator in Mooloolaba? Join Adam Austin and his team from Odyssey Charters for a half day, three quarter day, full day, or maxi-tour and catch the fish of a lifetime.
Odyssey Charters fish the local inner and outer reef systems around the Caloundra and Mooloolaba coastal areas. Some inner reefs can produce high quality table fish like red emporer, pearl perch, and snapper. The outer reefs usually hold much larger fish, such as, snapper, amberjack, cobia, mackeral, shark, and more.
You may experience a bonus on our Fishing Charters as you travel to the reef systems. If you time your trip during whale season, you will likely see whales breaching the surface.
Our Half Day Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters
Our half day fishing charters depart at varying times. We have an early morning charter departing 5am, and an afternoon charter departing at 12 noon. Each charter lasts approximately 5 hours including travel time. Our boat is one of the fastest in the region which means you’ll get your bait in the water faster with us.
The shorter charters give you a taste of fishing the inner reefs of the Sunshine Coast region, while the full day charter will get you fishing on the Barwon Banks, some 30+ km offshore. Water depth out there can be as much as 100 meters.
Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters – Our Inclusions
We include all the safety gear, an experienced skipper, and crew, along with a state-of-the-art tackle for your fishing charter experience. On most trips, fresh cold drinks will be provided, and in some cases morning or afternoon tea. For longer charters, we have a full menu.
Our experienced deckhand will assist you to release the fish then tag your fish so you know it’s yours. At the end of the charter, take a seat while the deckhand packages your day’s catch into a bag for you to take home.
If time permits, we will gut the fish for you before we reach the dock.
Where does Odyssey Fishing Charters catch fish?
Aah, that’s a secret. If we told everyone that we would be overwhelmed by other charter boat operators and you would have to share the catch with them. Only kidding! Depending on the length of your tour, we will fish the inner reef systems or outer reef systems. Our boat is very fast and this means that you’ll reach the fishing grounds quickly, and this maximizes your fishing time. Your tackle and bait will be prepared ahead of schedule allowing you to drop your rig as soon as we are positioned over the reef.
The outer reef, called The Barwon Banks is a very large reef running north to south parallel with the Sunshine Coast. On the southern end, you’ll find reef systems around Caloundra, while further north they can stretch as far as Noosa. The water depth here can vary from 50m to 100m in some places.
