Hi guys...

my man has surprised me with an announcement that he would like to treat me to a fishing trip out on a BIG boat :)

I've looked online and there appear to be heaps of them around brissie and the Gold Coast... all charging similar prices.

anyone have experience here?

who's good? #how do i wake up hubby to get to the boat by 5 - 6 am???

any tips will be most appreciated!!

the staff and myself go out with seaprobe down the coast about 3-4 times a year and we find them very good.
Just ask for chad and he will take care of you.

i reccomend heading up to noosa and going out with the boys from MV Trekka (fishing offshore noosa) i have made about 10 trips with this crew this year and most of the time we get a feed. the skipper knows what he is doing and moves around if neccasary. and the deckie always insures that everyone has a feed when possible. MV Trekka is a 12m by 5.5m power cat , she is very comfy and rides very nicely.

good luch when u get out offshore

G'day Worms,don't discount heading south,Mono Stewart opperates a reputable charter out of the Brunswick River in the Byron Shire.I personaly don't use charter boats but I know a couple of people that have been out with him and they were rapt,if you left it til after school holidays you could find reasonably priced accomadation and make a weekend out of it,you could give him a call if your interested on 02 6685 1913 or send him a PM on here,just look for "mono".I have no affiliation with his opperation,just passing what I've heard.
