Get in while ya can

 Check this crap out.

Deepsea fishing but you only go to Carnac, Garden Island and The Sound. Oh and dont forget the sausage sizzle.

Not even good enough to buy the outlaws for Xmas.

"Stop off at Carnac, Garden Island, Cockburn Sound and other hot fishing spots along the way, where you'll cast your line for skippy, King George whiting and more"

 Not many takes on a forum like this, but a first timer or dad and young boy might like the day out. Heck just the boat trip might be nice for some non fishos. At least you would be on the water. No connection to me, just that sometimes the simple things like a day on a boat could make someone's year.

Its aimed at a specific market, and obvious that the customers wouldn't know a stella from a alvey. They would probably think they hooked the reef if they were onto a sambo. Seems like this pops up every time the charter advertises.
If you don't have a boat I would think its a good way to have a day on the water with the kids.

you people have to slag off on anything that is not appealing to you. If you don,t like it, don,t worry about it and don't bother other people with your small minded opinions on it...

Thu, 2013-12-12 13:53

 I dunno, people who see that add and have never fished, or don't fish often could easily get the wrong idea. 1st off there is a big picture of a game boat with these massive over head reels and then the text saying "deep sea". I kinda think that might put expectations higher then they should be. Maybe scrap the deep sea bit and change the photo to something else. Maybe a dad with his son holding a decent skippy or KG, would still appeal to their target audience and would be alot more accurate. Just think they would get more positive comments that way.

A friend of mine took his daughter on this and as the add says - stop on the way to rotto. They fished south side of rotto, sure not 150m deep but still 15 - 20 km offshore.
And for what its worth to you - they had a blast.
EDIT if there is to be a complaint I think the availability of their bookings is questionable.

Thu, 2013-12-12 13:53

you are playing to a pretty big aduience on here and I bet comments an threads like yours are defermation in some form or another. Good luck with that...

Anyway, yeh I reckon it would be a good introduction to people starting out and who want to give it a go without spending a motza. If they took the time to show some basics, they would 'cull it'.

 Obviosly your some type of lawyer and know a lot about defermation cause i can't see where i defamed anyone. Just stating my opinion i couldn't care less if you like it or not i'm not here to please anyone.

Just merely stating the obvious.

Not saying that someone that has never been on a boat wouldn't like it but if youve never had a beer Coke seems pretty good too.

There has been plenty said on here about just how shitty of a charter it is already.

Been out with them last year

Thu, 2013-12-12 14:01

Been out with them last year and would not recommend it even to first timers:

  • reels spooled with cheap mono with heaps of memory - so many twists and tangles it wasn't funny
  • one reason for the line twist was there were no swivels used on any of the rods.  Rigs were made from the same mono as the reels and tied straight onto the mainline.
  • 16 people crammed onto the boat - so many crossed lines
  • sausages were the cheapest sausages money can buy - one of mine had two pieces of bone in it (for the record I'll eat most snags, I love them)
  • one hook per rod, mulies only for bait
  • total of one flathead landed for the entire trip (benefit of the doubt here - this can happen to anyone)
  • decky was the laziest decky I have ever seen on a charter boat (been on 15+ charters)

The charter I went on was woeful and I felt for the people who clearly went on it for a day on the water.

Thu, 2013-12-12 14:45

 nah mate, does the same year round. Have a freind who said the boat felt like it was about to sink with 18 people on it. came in early for that reason apparently. This stuff comes up every time it is posted on scoopons, deals etc and its always the same. Spend the extra hundred and fifty bucks and get out with a reputable, decent charter and you will actually catch fish and enjoy your time on the water!

Thu, 2013-12-12 15:40

 Don't mind if I decided to buy the voucher myself, but many are bought by others to give as presents. I used to complain to my missus how I rarely get any decent fish from my boat, so for a birthday present my missus bought me a couple of discounted fishing vouchers as a birthday present.( I've touched on how these went before) so my guess is that a few of us out there this Christmas will get this as a thoughtful present with the added quality rod and reel.

Don't want to bag someones

Thu, 2013-12-12 20:27

Don't want to bag someones business here so ..but maybe they would do a lot better and build a better reputation if they actually targeted the Whiting, herring, garfish, skippy that frequesnt the areas they fish in, simply drift out a bait or two for the passing Sambos or shark to provide the excitement factor. Then they would have a nice little business I reckon ...They could then make it a educational thing as well. Showing how to rig, bait,fillet and the like. Hmmmm ... Wonder if they want to sell. I could do with a nice little business like that !!!!
