What To Expect From Our Charters

Here at Top Gear Fishing, we will provide all your Top of the Line fishing gear, we specialise in Penn and Shimano we also use a Paternoster rig which is two hooks on a heavy leader line, this ensures maximum hook up and landing rates. In season we will run Lures out to and in between Reefs, when the big bities are on there is nothing better than seeing a large predator leaping out of the water, any large fish caught this way will be shared amongst everybody, but please be aware, we do not tow lures all day unless specifically requested on a Private Charter. 

We are here to provide you with the best day possible and of  course we will Live Bait, Float lines, Jig  and Bottom bash for all the Reef Dwellers. We will also help you with every aspect of Deep Sea Fishing so don’t feel shy or embarrassed if you are inexperienced. We make sure everyone has fun!

Our Gold Coast Fishing Charters have 3 main goals Be Safe, Catch Fish & Have Fun!

What to bring on board

Summer we suggest a long sleeve shirt, the deck is carpeted, so soft shoes are fine, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat. Winter, a Jacket is recommended. We will clean, bag, and chill your fish for you. We provide bottles of water, soft drinks, and light snacks as in chips, muesli bars etc, it is not a meal, just a snack so feel free to bring your own food eg, sandwiches etc. Beers are fine, in moderation and in cans please. Sea sickness, yes it happens if you are not sure then its a good idea to take the tablets or it may ruin your day and follow the directions. Also if you are to bring an Esky please leave larger ones in your vehicle until we return as they take up a bit of space unless you have organised it with us prior.
If there is something you are not sure of, ask us, we are here to help you.

We had a fantastic time with our seven-year-old son who with Billy‘s and Brian‘s assistance caught so many fish ,... making memories of a lifetime for him. They are both very experienced anglers and nothing is too hard for them, and they are so willing to share patiently their experience and bad jokes with everyone aboard, making for a very fun fishing adventure. Their service went above and beyond because they cleaned all the fish we caught and gave us all a huge hamper of fresh fish to take home and enjoy that weekend.read more
