In response to your reply, I distinctively remember saying in the brief prior to departure we were going to target Mackerel because the reef fish have been scarce due to weather conditions and tidal movements recently. As in all fishing it takes patience and persistence...More
Had a great day out fishing on Hooker 1 with Ash and Ali. We picked a perfect day with light winds and a small swell. We were greeted by owners Ash and Ali and were soon on our way to sea with a nice warm...More
We came all the way from Finland and the trip met all expectations. Deep sea fishing catching snapper etc fish and on the way back we caught a beautiful dolphin fish. We recommend Hooker 1 and the crew!

We caught plenty of snapper and flat head and few other species. will be back when the Pelagius come through...More

Hi Steve the Chef,
Thank you for your feedback, when you booked on a ¾ day shared charter the weather forecast from BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) Seabreeze and Gold Coast Seaway Tower for that day was showing 12knot winds and sunny, winds and swell expected...More
The whole team were first class in their treatment and respect for everyone on board. Busy time of year and boat was well appointed to handle 10 people. A couple of little tangles but nothing that couldn't be sorted out and created a huge amount...More

All depends on the weather. We took off at 5 or 530 from memory. Our half day lasted about 7 hours. Again all depends on the weather and the fishing. Ashley is more concerned with everyone having a great time other than watching the clock.
I don't remember the cost. I know it was reasonable and competitive. Best way is phone the owner Ashley 0407 286 469.
I saved his number for future use. I will be going on his boat again. Was a truly great day
