Fishing Charter FAQs

What types of fish species can be caught during fishing trips in Sydney?

Fishing in Sydney offers a diverse range of species, including snapper, bream, kingfish, tuna, marlin, and mahi-mahi. The fishing grounds in Sydney's harbour and off the coast provide ample opportunities for anglers of all levels to target various sought-after species. Of course, as fishing is a highly targetted activity, not all of these species will be available for catching on the same trip. As such, our fishing fleet can offer game fishing, in-harbour fishing or reef fishing depending on the kind of fish you are interested in tackling.

What are the best times of the year for fishing trips in Sydney?

You can fish all year round in Sydney, with some seasons being better for specific species than others. In the warmer months, species such as Kingfish, Mahi Mahi and Marlin are all increasing in activity. Of course, Snapper, Morwong and Flathead etc. are also available as they are year-round species. In the summer months, you can expect to be using a mix of trolling lurers, live bait and bottom bashing. In winter, meanwhile, you will see an increase in tuna and blue eyed cod, and the colder months are also an exceptional time for reef fishing in general.

Are fishing charters in Sydney suitable for beginners?

Our fishing charters can cater to anglers of all levels, including beginners. The experienced captains and crew onboard ensure a safe, enjoyable, and educational experience for anglers new to the activity. Experts or aficionados can bring their own tackle and gear and swap war stories with the skippers, while beginners can expect to have a comprehensive introduction to what might just become their next favourite hobby.

What is the duration of typical fishing charters in Sydney?

The duration of fishing charters in Sydney varies depending on the type of trip. Inshore reef fishing trips may be shorter, while offshore game fishing adventures can extend for a full day. It's essential to consider the duration when selecting a fishing charter that suits your preferences. If you have any doubts about how much time you need to account for, let out team know what you're looking to catch when you book and we can help guide you on that.

Can participants bring their own fishing equipment on the charters?

While our fishing charters in provide all the necessary fishing equipment you'll need for the species you're targetting, participants are often welcome to bring their own gear. However, as there is limited space on the boats, it's advisable to confirm whether you'll be bringing your own rod and tackle with our team beforehand.

Are meals provided during fishing charters in Sydney?

The majority of our fishing boats do lay on catering as an optional extra. This can range from a few light snacks to a full day's worth of food depending on how long the trip is intended to last. We always recommended asking about the specific meal arrangements when you book your fishing charter to ensure that the experience meets your expectations.

Is there a minimum or maximum age requirement for participants on fishing charters in Sydney?

In some cases, vessels do require participants to be of a minimum age, especially when the intended target is a strong species such as marlin. Maximum age limits generally don't apply but participants are expected to be in decent shape so they are able to deal with the physical demands of reeling in a whopper! It's essential to clarify any age restrictions when planning a fishing trip to ensure that all participants meet the necessary criteria.

What are the best locations for fishing trips in Sydney?

Sydney offers a range of world-class fishing locations, including the harbor's inner reaches and the deep ocean off the coast. A couple of classic spots include Brown's Mountain, which is a fair way out into the Pacific. Here, you'll find an abundance of marlin and tuna. Among the best artificially enhanced spots is the Sydney Harbour FAD (Fish Aggregating Device) that is just a short trip from the Harbour and can offer some excellent mahi mahi and kingfish catches. Understanding the different locations and their unique offerings can help participants select the most suitable fishing trip for their preferences.

What is the recommended attire for participants during fishing charters in Sydney?

Participants are advised to dress comfortably and wear suitable attire for the weather conditions, including hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. It's also recommended to bring additional layers for cooler temperatures and to be prepared for changes in weather during the trip (a lot of fishing trips start pretty early, so the temperature difference between beginning and end can be quite marked.

What happens if there is rain or bad weather on the day of my fishing trip?

This depends, really. Light rain is usually fine regardless of where you're headed, but heavy rain or high winds may mean that a deep sea trip has to be rearranged. When you book your fishing trip with us, it's important you are clear on all our terms and conditions and that you ask about how weather may affect your day out.
