The
Experience

We are committed and pride ourselves upon facilitating a great experience out on the water catering for all levels of experience by providing a range of tour options for individuals, families and small groups.

We focus primarily on lure fishing, using soft plastics and hard body lures, quality fishing tackle, techniques, and technology to provide an unforgettable experience whilst immersed in the pristine natural environment of East Gippsland.

 

Estuary fishing in East Gippsland can be exceptional, offering a wide variety of species including Dusky Flathead, Bream, Trevally, Estuary Perch, Tailor and Salmon.

 

While our tours are predominantly fishing based, the extraordinary diversity and beauty of the flora, fauna and landscapes that you will come across whilst fishing in these locations is simply breathtaking.

Our Boat

Our boat is a 2021 4.8 metre Polycraft Brumby centre console, surveyed to carry 4 passengers.

 

There is ample space onboard enabling full access to the front casting deck and rear/side cockpit area.

 

Powered by a 80hp Honda 4 stroke outboard, we will get you to the fishing spots safely and efficiently.

At the pointy end we have a Minn Kota Terrova bow mounted electric motor that will quietly get you close to drop offs and snags where fish like to hide out.

Your Guide

Chris has spent decades fishing the East Gippsland estuary systems of Lake Tyers, Bemm River and Mallacoota.

Creating a unique experience for his clients is Chris’s primary focus, made easier by operating in the pristine environments that these East Gippsland’s waterways offer.

Clients with little experience can learn new skills including casting, tying knots or how to work soft plastic or hard body lures. On the flip side, if you are a seasoned fisho we can just put you on the spot and just let you do what you do best.

Chris is fully qualified for your safety and holds the following qualifications:
 

  • Coxswain NC 1

  • LROCP Marine Radio Licence

  • First Aid & CPR trained

  • Fully insured

TESTIMONIALS

We had a terrific few days with Chris fishing for bream and flathead around Gipsy Point and Mallacoota. His gear is good, his boat clean and tidy, and his patience admirable. His knowledge of the various techniques and terminal tackle for attracting bream at different depths and conditions was impressive - as was his helpful instruction and guidance. And none of us can recall another guide who always had another rod ready to go when you tangled or lost a lure! Highly recommended.
