Although the fishing was tough I had an excellent day out. Mick was great to fish with and the experience was more like fishing with a mate than a guide. I would definitely go again.

As an experienced fishing enthusiast, I found mick's setup, tackle, and time from dock to fish remarkably streamlined and exactly what it took. His tackle was new, and ready for reef, deep sea, and estuary fishing. He took the time to explain fully and by...More

So glad you enjoyed the day, even with the fish not cooperating. You might want to check the regulations in your area regarding cast nets, as they are illegal in most places.

Mick is exceptionally knowledgeable, he is a great teacher and very helpful. We caught several species of fish, including a shark! My girlfriend was hesitant about coming along as she doesn't really fish but the scenery and overall experience more than made up for it.
