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.

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.
