We had a great day out on the boat with John. Was a slow day for the fish due to dodgy weather, but Johns knowledge and expertise of the water, was above and beyond. He went out of his way to make sure we all caught atleast one fish, and with a few different species too. Great hospitality John, will... More

Hey, I spend a halt day fishing with John and it was awesome! John is a real fisherman. I caught two bass, one stinger (I hope this is how you call it) and two queenfishes. One of them was huge! John prepared filets for me, so I had delicious queenfish for dinner! Thanks John!

We (3 of us) booked a trip on March 9th and found John to be very experienced and knowledgeable on the types of fish, the estuary and wildlife around. He worked very hard catching the live bait and took us to various places to catch fish, which we did! Just too bad the best fish (Barramundi) was able to unhook... More

I didnt get a barra but I got a few fingermarks and a barracoutta which became the resident eagles food. loved it. If... More

Did the morning charter with my GF. Had a fantastic time! John is super knowledgeable fisherman. We caught all sorts of species. And catching live bait with the throw net was cool too.

I highly recommend fishing with John. He has a ton of experience, I caught a lot of fish, and he was a great guide (we had a lot of fun). John keeps his word and fishing with him is great value.

So went out fishing with my dad; didn't catch anything but the half day was still good, we both had a fun morning out. The Skipper John was great in keeping people interested.

I would highly recommend this charter. It was tough going finding fish due to heavy rain during the week and a big full moon tide when my brother and I went out with John recently. Even though we didn't land a monster, spending the morning with John was extremely enjoyable! We had live prawns, herring and mullet for bait but... More

What can i say. John went above and beyond what i expected. My son and I had a great day fishing. Johns knowledge of the area and fish we were targeting made my sons 1st Barra experience one for him to remember and the jack was a fantastic bonus for the day, the way the rod bent double it was...
