An offshore fishing
trip (daytime) usually has the following schedule:
transit to fishing hotspots
- reef (bottom fishing)
- mangrove (spinning)
- underwater structures (bottom fishing)
- packed lunch (ordered before-hand)
- cold bottled water
- healthy snacks
are advised to bring light to medium tackle. A good choice of tackle
would be a 5 to 6 foot light to medium action rod with an appropriate
reel (spinning or baitcaster). This means you can leave your heavy-duty
big game boat rods and reels at home. We will source equipment should
you not have an appropriate tackle outfit.
It is usual practise
for each angler to fish with one rod at a time. Trying to man two rods
might not be a good idea.
Natural baits used
for these charters include live prawn/shrimp, fresh prawns/shrimp, fresh
squid and live sandworm. As often as possible, live bait fish will be
used (if available). The choice of bait will also determine the price.
For safety, all
participants are advised to wear the life jackets provided if they are
not proficient swimmers.
