Well it is the start of a New Year and Rhianna and I at Fishing Getaways hope you have a great year in all ways especially in catching some awesome fish be they just some nice flathead in the Bay or your dream fish that you have had on you bucket list for a long time. Either way we are here to help you and look forward to hearing from you this year.
We often get asked at shows why should I use your company? And that is a fair question.
There are a number of reasons besides taking the hassle out of organising the whole trip for you and your mates to use us but there is one important one I would like to mention at the start of the year and that is arranging your trip on the prime time with the top skippers.
PRIME TIME FISHING AND TOP GUIDES/SKIPPERS
It is so important to be fishing at the right time of the year and the right time of the month for your targeted fish. Many fish need the water to be the right temperature or the moon to be at the right phase to be on the bite. I get upset when I hear stories that people spend good money to target a particular specie to be told by the skipper when getting on the boat that they are not in season even though they made it clear that is what they wanted to do at the time of booking. It is our close communication with our guides and skippers throughout Australia and the South Pacific that provides us this information to help in the timing of your next fishing trip.
The other important aspect of your trip is the operator and we pride ourselves in the operators that we use. All are of high standard and a number you will find are the very best in the area or style of fishing. We have one boat that is basically booked out for the whole bluefin tuna season in Tasmania and other guides you need to book well in advance to get the prime dates.
Sometimes the best dates to fish cannot be taken into account because you are travelling on a business trip or in school holidays but that is when the importance of being prebooked with the best skipper comes into place so you have the best day on the water.
