Booked a last minute charter for myself and 4 others with Mal yesterday and had an amazing time. We were catching perfect eating size pinkies with in minutes of pulling up at the first spot and even managed to land a 25kg+ gummy shark! The boat had plenty of room to accomodate even more people should there have been any and was kept extremely tidy. Mal was a professional charter guide that was knowledgeable and easy to get along with. Overall the experience exceeded our already high expectations and we would all happily book again in future 🙂

Great day out and saw the biggest snapper I've ever seen caught in the bay while on charter. The boat was spacious with well equipped tech to find the fish. Skipper Mal also brought the laughs and made sure everyone had a good time. Our boat ended up with 7 snapper (the bigger ones were giants) and 3 flatties that were keepers + more that were thrown back. Really recommend if you are keen to go on a charter in the bay
