Overview

  • We recommend this length of trip to the more experienced fishing enthusiasts as well as anyone wanting the best chance to catch that big one. 
  • With the additional time we can allow for trawling, as well as substantially increase the distance we can travel and the locations we are able to reach.
  • In all this gives you the best chance to catch your fill! 🐟
  • In general we travel up to 25nm offshore on this charter.
  • Enjoy the use of a variety of types of rods, reels and bait. Snacks, unlimited soft drinks and bottled water are supplied throughout the trip. We even include a fresh lunch for you on our 9-hour trips!
  • Our 55 ft vessel, Crusader 1 is surveyed for a maximum of 25 persons. On mixed groups we keep it to around 18 people + crew so as not to overcrowd our charters and to give you plenty of room to move around the boat comfortably. ⛵

ItineraryFull-day tour

Departure

Please arrive 20 to 30 minutes PRIOR to your noted departure time. The vessels will depart on time should you be late and we have note heard from you!

Ensure you have enough time to find a car park if needed.

Please DO NOT bring empty eskies aboard. The crew will bag and ice your fish for you so that you can take them to your can and easily place them in a waiting esky there.

Early charters have Morning Coffee and tea provided aboard. (We know how hard it can be to find a coffee at 5AM!)

Please do not wait on the pontoon itself as the crew will be mooring the vessel on its arrival and we safety is paramount for all.


Boarding

Once securely and safely moored, the crew will ask you to board the vessel. Make your way up towards the cabin, placing any bags in the locker seat that will be open and waiting.


Registering

We are heading out to sea so each and every person aboard must sign in on the ship register, and marked off by the crew. To this end see the skipper (at the cabin window) and he will indicate the passenger log for you to complete. Have a balance to pay for the day? This is where and when you do that part too.


Relax

Once the paperwork has been done for you, make yourself a coffee or tea (all waiting for you on the large table) and have a look about the boat to get comfortable. The Coffee and tea will be put away by the crew as we exit the river so make sure you have yours well before that!


Safety First

As required by maritime legislation, the crew will have to do a safety briefing before we hit the open ocean. Much like on a plane any time you fly, we do need your attention for the couple of minutes it takes. We all hope and expect the information we are providing never to be needed, but it’s always best to be forewarned and prepared.


Pushing off

One of the few times we need you to be seated, out of the way of lines and other items. Just until the crew have cleared them away and the skipper is heading forward.


Crossing the Bar

Recognised in maritime as one of the potentially more dangerous things that happens aboard a vessel, this is the 2nd time the crew will ask everyone to be seated. Once through (It only takes a minute or 2) the ocean conditions will take effect.


Setting trolling lines

On a 9Hr trip the total “steam” to the start of the Barwon Banks is normally about 90 minutes. However if the crew (or you as passengers) see anything that could indicate a worthwhile area to troll through such as bait fish jumping etc, the vessel will then slow down to a more gentle cruise speed (about 8 to 12 knots) and the crew will set the trolling lines from the rear of the vessel. With a little luck we may hook on to a few good size pelagic before the reef fishing itself has started!


Fishing!

The first of what will normally be 5 or 6 different locations. The crew will provide everyone will a quick demonstration of how to put bait on, how to drop your lines and other relevant areas of using the fishing equipment. Of course if you are still unsure just ask for help! That’s why we have more crew that most other charters aboard!


Return

On a 9 Hr charter you will normally have about 7 hours of actual fishing time not taking into account the move from location to location or the time you may take to have lunch/dinner.


Back home

Of course as we re-enter the bar, and during the mooring of the vessel, the crew will ask all passengers to be seated again for safety. Once moored securely, the crew will retrieve the fish caught and hand them out based on the tagging done at the time of catching them. All your fish will be in plastic bags with ice to keep them cold. Once you have your seafood bounty you are free to disembark the vessel.
