Well we are getting close to the end of another fishing season in Melbourne and we have had an interesting one.

Our last share chater out of Hastings was one of those days where the easterly wind blew and proved the old fisherman's story that the fish don't bite when the wind blows in from the east, but still the boys on the boat gave us a good time complete with a singing dog. Our new staff member Allison come out on the afternoon trip and shone with the rod. I must report a much better angler than Jay.

Jay is infact on leave for 5 months and travelling around the world but has promised she will be back in time for the Boat Show. Currently Jay is in Thailand relaxing and learning the language and we will keep you up to date with her activites each month


Next month I will be off to Fiji celebrating my honeymoon or is that a fishing research trip? I will absolutely be wetting a line or two with our operator Johnny while over there and enjoying staying at the First Landing resort. I will also finalise the Melbourne Cup Fiji Trip including all the fishing, the fun and other activies for the non fisher partner. For the non fishers this is a great destination to relax, get pampered and not be irritated by children while your partner is on the boat.


This location is proving to be a great place with Albacore, Blue Fin and Stripped Trumpeter being targeted species at diferent times of the year. Following the boys down there last weekend they caught some nice Albacore and we now have the following trips available:

25-27 May     Blue Fin                         3 spots
          Nov     Stripped Trumpeter     2 spots on 1st boat (dates to be advised)
Mar 2013      Albacore/Yellow fin      5 spots (dates to be advised)

So if you want to be on board let us know.

SAMOA     20-27 April 2013

I had the pleasure to fish in Samoa last year very briefly and was blown away with everything, so we have decided to put a trip together chasing Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo and GT's. The price is still yet to be finalised but we have estimated it to be approx $3000. This is great value and should not be missed.

If you are interested in any of these trips coming up please email us or give us a call.
