Excellent afternoon on the water, catching fish & eating crab

We visited five fishing spots, where between the participants (4a, 3t, 4c) we caught 40-50 undersized fish and one keeper, a 34cm whiting. It was gutted and cleaned to take home for dinner. There was a wide range of fish- bream, ponyfish, flathead and estuary cod. Boat Captain Mark was very chatty and helpful. A simple variety of snacks included a can of drink, water, chips, choc, lamingtons, and biscuits- quite fine! We lifted 3 prevailed crab pots- each had one female crab which was returned to the water. Male crabs eluded us, but Mark was prepared with fresh crab he cooked on the boat. OMG, the ‘fresh’ crab meat was a sweet delicacy. Highly recommend this experience, it was great fun for kids to try fishing and fun for adults too.

Fantastic experience with an awesome captain! 5 Stars for me!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Captain Mark is a really great tour guide with a lot of knowledge, tips & tricks and a great conversationalist. Lunch included, crab tasting was absolutely beautiful and I managed to catch 3 fish! Would 100% do this tour again as the experience was awesome!
