Great day fishing, hard working operator. Really worked to put us on some good fish. Not afraid to keep moving until he found the fish.

Simon was an awesome host and tried hard to find the best fishing spots going. There was one spot that really worked for us but then the grey fish with fins (Sharks) not allowed to say that word, tried to eat everything that was orange....More

Avoid this charter. It's very frustrating to make a booking. The owner took the booking very unprofessional, he didn't ask your name and your contact number when you phone to book. He didn't provide any information of departure time and name of marina either. You...More

Hi Vicki, Sorry that you feel that way about my service, it is hard for me to take calls when I'm out fishing. 3 emails and numerous phone calls are adequate for most people. I always leave from Yorkeys Knob. Unlike other boats, I don't...More
